Simplicity 

 sim·plic·i·ty –  1.  freedom from complexity;  2. absence of luxury, pretentiousness, ornament, etc.; plainness: a life of simplicity

A life of simplicity.   What does that look like?  In my humble (simple) opinion, it looks like a life that has room or space to it.   Unhurried, uncluttered and unstressed. 

Gardening and foraging at home to create with, fits a simple life.  It causes you to unplug, get your hands dirty, and slow down. 

This foraged bougainvillea placed in a handmade ceramic pot, is an example of simple.  By using one type of flowering branches, loosely placed, there is a simplicity that is restful to look at.  Try it!

Hooray Magazine Feature

What an honor to have Hooray Magazine pick up a shoot I styled for a Mother – Daughter Brunch.  The shoot was a dream to style and dream up.  It was a labor of love, that featured my daughter, myself, and my dear friend Laura and her daughters.  What a talented group of ladies.  We all used our talents to make this shoot so lovely.  Here is the link to the article Mothers+Daughters.  Thanks Roma Bea Images for the great photos!

Obsession: Floral Crown

IMG_2155

My latest obsession: arranging flowers.  I took an online floral arranging class at Nicolesclasses.com, and this was one of the assignments.  I had a blast creating lovely flower arrangements and bouquets, and this assignment was probably my favorite!!  The creativity you can pour into these, and get different looks, is unlimited.  This one I think looks like it should be on a woodland fairy princess.  Don’t you agree?

Morning Inspiration

In the stillness of the early morning, it was just the pigeons and me watching the sunrise. A few surfers were out for “dawn patrol”, catching the early morning waves. What a beautiful place to live! What a beautiful place for inspiration! I couldn’t help but think how God’s mercies are new every morning. Seeing the beauty of the sunrise, and all that God creates blesses and inspires me to be creative, and possibly become a morning person!
