Small Pink World

 One of the reasons I like blogging is the focus it requires.

We all have our random thoughts, but when you stop to think,"What will I capture today, and what will I say?", the thought moves to the realm of idea and purpose. Or not.

Sometimes it just flows, and other times you have to stop the busy world, find a quiet place, and let it happen. 

 A mindful life enriches the world.

That's what posting does for me. It's a sort of active meditation. Connecting thoughts to things.

 It is a physical world after all. And sometimes a very small one.
 My quiet place today is in the nursery.

These are views of the nursery guestroom window. There is usually a small empty bench here because the trundle bed pulls out and it's easy to whisk the bench away when the bed is needed. But I have just had a series of little guests, and I wanted a change while the room is less busy.

The change of season has altered the light coming in through the sheers. It seems the perfect time to show off a few bottles with some back lighting.

The light through the baby gown, and the tiny tea set keep me in anticipation of the next sweet visit!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Ciao! for now!



  1. How lovely! And that you've allowed the light to still carry through the room gets major kudos from me!

  9. This is so lovely. It's beautiful the way the light glimmers through the curtain and that little baby dress is so sweet :)

  10. dear Jacqui, I love your post today.. like you, there are times when I'm struggling to think what to write for my post and what picture should I share.. and it is so true, that there are times we just have to let it go with the flow.. thanks for sharing this post and the pretties you shared and photos are just lovely! I like the bottles so much.. are those vintage bottles?


  11. Wow,
    I just signed up as your newest follower. Reading thru your blog posts was pure delight! You have such a talent for display. I love your beautiful fall tablescape with the wool cloth. Is the RL wool a coverlet or acutally a tablecloth? Fall is my favorite time of year becuase I dress up my whites with all of my brown transferware as well. I've been searching for a piece from the Asthetic movement for ages that I could afford. Still searching LOL. I'll be back soon. Lisa

  12. I love your take on blogging and I agree completely! Thanks for sharing~Blessings~Shine

  14. Well said. I like the idea of telling a story with a picture, something I'm striving for more of.

  15. Oh, Jacqueline, that sun shining through the window through those pretty sheer curtains and that sweet, sweet baby dress---just soooo beautiful. Love the bunnies and the china gleaming in the sunlight. We're pouring rain and so dark, it's a cave! Thanks for the lovely reprieve! Love, Kay

  16. I love your nursery post! Beautiful photos and wonderful message.
