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 grandma, playing 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!
