A Few Elegant Details

I like to get my brain warmed up by looking over a few pretty books or magazines in the morning. Inevitably I encounter something that gives me a good decorating idea, or reminds me of what I'm SUPPOSED to be doing today. You never know what will spark your creativity. I usually have a magnifyer nearby because I don't like missing the details. Because it's all in the details isn't it?

Nautical themes always catch my interest.

Little clothes are like delicate flowers. Do you see the birds here?

Lace is like an unsolved mystery to me.

There are so many similar graceful curves to the universe.

Beautiful china tops the list of elegant details.

I guess I need more lists!
 I hope you're enjoying the details in your day!
Ciao! for now!
