Slowly getting back to edits and some consistency in my schedule and very happy yo feel this alignment. Today, I was thinking of just everything around me, the mail, the fridge, the pantry, the laundry that is currnety humming, the new furniture outside and so on, was beginning to feel overwhelming. I feel so blessed, abundantly blessed. I look at what others have and am not envious or jealous, I see their challenges and struggles and am grateful that I do not have that to face. I see their abundance and am happy that they are well taken care of. I see the love in their life and also the pain of loss and know that we are all human and no one is exempt from pain or joy. What I know for sure is that this life is brimming with opportunity and bursting with joy and each moment is here, now, and this moment is infinitely as valuable as any other moment.
Well, after all this rambling today’s edit is another canister of tanning spray lol I don’t know where all this came from! Clearly, I bought it. But, why?
Easel, frame stand? I think it’s a easel… I remember when I bought this – to hold a mirror- and at the time I was unsure of my design intention or direction. That’s the first sign to not buy something lol. However, this easel has served its purpose as the supporter of a full length mirror.
As of now, the mirror is leaning against the wall and will likely stay that way for several months (I’m guessing) until we figure out the best space for permanent installation.
*sidenote: the mirror will likely be donated before future cross country move because I have a fear of it breaking in transport.
File this under things I thought I’d keep forever. Looking in to closet I spotted this Polaroid camera that I picked up at a yard sale. It never worked and I told myself that’s okay because it filled some vintage cool component at the time. I also believed that it would work, some day, some how. It didn’t.
As kitschy as it is, I don’t see a place for it in our space and am confident that it will be picked up and well lived in the near future by a new owner.
Last Sunday, Bailey and I adventures to Houston, TX, for rock climbing and IKEA. We returned with a van full of boxes and hours of assembly ahead.
I love plants, but I am not a good lover. Things were going so smoothly before “the freeze” this year. We live in a moderate climate and I am not in the process of thinking of weather shifts. I pretty much assume that if it is cool when I leave the house, it will be warm or raining in the afternoon. I realize as I type this that it doesn’t make much sense but it seems to align closely with our weather. Needless to say, some plants needed to be tossed.
Tuesday morning, I woke and started clearing the patio space, discarding, combining plants, editing planters and so forth.
I discarded several planters that were just overgrown and not in alignment with the aesthetic we are attempting to achieve in the backyard.
