The Simple Life




The last two weeks or so have been a whirlwind of purging, cleaning, and nesting for me. Like most artist, creators, and nesters once this urge has set in nothing will stop it. I have just been craving simpler surroundings and a simpler life. I have dug through closets, drawers, and boxes. If I don't LOVE it, it must go! To my delight a very good friend of mine, and perhaps the most generous soul on Earth, was doing the same thing! She offered me some wonderful vintage and antique supplies. I was so sweetly surprised! And her taste is so much like that I of course love it all. I took the things she gave me, treasures I had found during my cleaning frenzy and sprinkled them through my home. What an amazing difference surrounding yourself with only things you love can make. Its like a breeze of fresh air. Enjoy your life and MAKE IT SIMPLE!
