A pretty illustration for today. I love the gray letterpress. So perfect.

Hoping to use gilding in an upcoming project! Isn't a subtle touch of gold just amazing?!

If I had a chunk of time with nothing to do, I'd like to spend it painting with watercolor. It's always been a favorite medium. And these birch trees are just lovely.

Happy Monday to you. After some relaxing weekend, I am ready to tackle this week. And it doesn't hurt that next weekend includes a holiday...!

I love the messy thread in this wall art. Endless inspiration from the recently discovered Dottie Angel.

Saw this pin and my heart smiled. Such amazing work. I'm still recovering from a terrible fever-like bug that hit me yesterday. ICK. But hopefully rest tomorrow and then a BBQ yay! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

This image is soooo pretty I want to die. And really I just want to make everything cobalt these days. Major color crush.

Hey there! So my workload is not slowing down as hoped. Sad day. This time last year I quit blogging for 6ish weeks (a pattern perhaps?). Since it pains me to ignore the blog completely, I've decided to go "blogging light" until I can work in the 15+ hrs/wk it takes to generate my own content. Until then I'll feature things that make me SWOON and that simply make the world a lovelier place.

Thank you so much for your understanding! XOXO

How fun is this tumblr? I love a well done theme—simple and straighforward. And also a good reminder about perspective. I so desperately need a reminder to keep my eyes on the true goal. Are you worried about the clouds, wainting on the sun, or resting in assuredness?

flowers for you

I am already needing a Monday reboot (and it's only 10am). *sigh* Hoping the idea of picking my own bouquet makes the day a bit more cheery.

A great week is in store...starting now.
