Beautiful surroundings are good for your soul. Create lovely things in your home. Perhaps make it a bit of a hobby and give yourself a budget. I think you will find that you can do a lot with very little $$$$. In fact, you might make that a challenge. I wish you beauty!
We saw a beautiful little fawn come out of the forest this morning. It was so very quiet and peaceful. Sometimes on our busy days, quiet and beauty should be made a priority, don’t you think?
There is so much beauty in nature! Some days I stand on my porch and just look out the window. I say a fawn yesterday and three pheasants the day before. So many little birds come to my bird feeder. What a joy!
This is the view from a cabin at Deep Creek Lake in Maryland. Just after I took this picture a fawn stepped out of the woods, and earlier I had seen three pheasants! Nature is full of such peace and beauty!
Dear Blog Friends-Sorry not to have posted for a week. We have been on vacation and NO Computer!!! I am back now and will continue to communicate and hope you all will do the same. Best regards, Judith
People don’t think of their kitchens as being a place of beauty but let’s try to change all of that. I like to keep edible flowers out. They are so colorful. I also put my fruit in arrangements. It takes so little time and it makes such a difference to a mood. I also have some very pretty platters that I love to put out in picture frame holders. Many of them are thrift shop finds that I have purchased for under $2.00.
I have a girlfriend who collects wooden trays and she puts them out with pictures she loves, little arrangements of Rosemary in pottery jugs, pretty napkins in collected napkin rings and just anything she likes on any given day. Do try some of these ideas even in a small kitchen. It can make kitchen time something really fun instead of a chore. Aren’t we always looking for ways to find a smile!
We see beauty in nature, and we see beauty in people. We see beauty in so many things that surround us. I spend a great deal of time in my kitchen and I love to create different decor from just the stuff I find around. I also make many different types of “kitchen dressing” out of basically the same things. Yes, I really do enjoy being in the kitchen for lots of reasons besides food preparation.
Close your eyes and listen.
