Fall always has me feeling on the country side of cottage. I'm trying out sage green today.
The smallest of changes can produce a big impact in plain rooms like this antique pieced quilt does. Even the pale color is a standout. Add a sage green basket, a green trimmed bowl, and you have a whole new mood. I add a few things. . . . I take them away again. . . . I still feel best with a quiet spareness for now.
A weathered ironstone jug from our rambles through Utah this summer joins the collection in the cabinet.
One of my big recent inspirations is a life less ordinary by Zoe Ellison, and Alex Legendre of i gigi general store, Brighton, England.
The best gift I have given myself of late. All soft, warm, and gorgeous like an early autumn afternoon.
I've been nursing a cold. The day has turned blustery. Mellow and jazzy Coffee House tunes are playing on my satellite radio. I think I'll take it easy for a while longer.
How's your week been going?
I hope you're finding wonderful inspirations of your own. . . .
