Well on this snowy end of February day, I wanted to make sure I took some pictures of the surroundings before the snow would start melting. I am not a winter lover but some days it tugs at my heart at Mother's Nature awe-inspiring beauty.. The picture to the left was one of those days a couple of years ago, today we are just minus the beautiful blue sky...
Since this picture was taken, like life a few things are missing. For instance, the beautiful red maple tree here i the right foreground, had to be taken down last fall as it was just to big and close to the house and starting to cause some structural damage to the deck..so in my mind's eye I still see it but in reality it feels like there is a hole in the sky...my mind still needs to adjust... Just like losing my sweet mami this past May 2012 is making my mind still adjust... she is there but not there...a missing piece in my daily view but always in my mind's eye..
So this morning when I wanted to go out and take a picture of my beautiful backyard...this is what I was astonished by and tried to wrap my mind around...my charming little gazebo had succumbed to the weight of the beautiful snow. Once again showing the beauty and power of Mother Nature. We are all but a spec here on earth as many areas of the continent have experienced. I learned many many years ago not be attached to "things"..a valuable lesson for sure.. So I say goodbye charming gazebo that brought beauty and focus as I drank a cup of tea and contemplated life out my window gazing at the picturesque view.
With spring around the corner, I await what is to be...a planting season without my mother's guidance (however, she is the angel in my garden)...a new possibility to see what can fill my meditation viewpoint. Hopes and reams are endless and the memories of what we once had are forever etched in my mind and heart...

When I discover something that speaks to my spirit, I start to get obsessive about it.
I found french market bags on Pinterest the other week and could not find enough of them..so I was sparked to design and create my own.
Of course I had no idea how to make flowers (so had to learn them - actually made up my own as I am not that good at following directions!!) I wanted to make ruffles but couldn't figure them out quick enough. I was going to paint my own roses on these canvas bags but FELL IN LOVE with these old vintage graphics that i found on The Graphics Fairy website (my goodness I spent hours there)...I really am an old soul.
So my style is now changing as I am shifting from "shabby-chic" whites to old-whites and French inspiration. Of course there are many lists I have to do around my house and that is probably why I haven't done much (besides the fact that my dh is a "wood" lover and threatens to "d" me if I paint anything white)...need to know the secret of those gals that have beautiful pink & white rooms with husbands!!!.
Since I am new to blogging, I hope that I can keep up and provide useful tips & information as well as figure out how to blog!!
Keep dreaming as one day your dreams will come true...
