happy friday + details


happy friday, friends.  i don’t have links this week, but i do have details.  if you came to my house you would quickly see that i like to decorate in the details.  i thought i’d share a few little things, that make me happy.

i got this “god is love” card from made by girl in my early blogging days and it’s a reminder of what love is and that there is no escaping it.  i have a picture of my grandmaplaying tennis in alberta, canada (where she is from), tacked up above with a garage sale sticker that i sharpied black.  she started as a newspaper reporter in her late teens in man’s world and thought nothing of it.  she is one of the strongest ladies i know who exudes grace and wears wisdom.  i look for my reflection in her photo rather than the mirrors on some mornings.


i bought pink himalayan sea salt.  yes, cause i cook with sea salt, but mostly because it’s pink!  and i wanted to look at something naturally pink and from the other side of the world.  then there is the light shining through the candle.  i didn’t know i’d catch it in the photo, but it just reminds me light shines through the scratches, scars,  and broken places…and it is much more breathtaking when shines this way . . .creating patterns and paths through imperfection that would otherwise be unknown.


and, flowers from our garden (and by garden i mean yard, i just like to say garden).  beautiful, fragile and fleeting.

do you decorate in the details?  my favorite homes are ones that tell stories and i love sharing stories throughout my home.

i hope your weekend is a lovely one…full of memory making that could later decorate your home.

i’ll be spending a lot of time running, getting ready for a garage sale, back to school and taking a ride on thomas the train!

    Does pink Himalaya salt taste like regular sea salt? I’ve seen it at the grocery store but never tried it.

    i think it is a little different. to me it tastes stronger. and, the texture of mine is more fine, like regular salt. i wish it was more flaky…and maybe there are varieties of that? you should try it! xo . t
