Sometimes it doesn't take much to inspire me. This little chamomile bouquet is enough to do it for today.
Such a cheery bloom! And just perfect for "cottage."
We have emerged from the latest cold snap, and it has me thinking of spring. That, and all the newest magazine covers. Have you noticed how gardening always turns up as a theme in January? But even this month is already over!
I've been paring things down and getting rid of stuff. Do you find yourself doing that too at the start of the year? But in my case, that often means just making room for something new.
I'm still gravitating toward a simpler farmhouse style. Still loving ironstone, textured linen, and grain sacks.
I am living with fewer accessories. (At least I am telling myself that!) And I no longer collect little vintage embroidered dish towels like this one. Except when I do! Haha!
Just too charming to pass up. It takes me to some place that I doubt exists in the real world anymore. (If it ever really did!)
But "china" is one of my other inspirations, like this set of old mixing bowls I recently found. (One of the things to make room for.) I find that these hefty old things hold up better than anything new that I buy.
So lucky to find a set of four, even with all the signs of wear. . . .
A turn of the calendar can leave me feeling energized.
Ready to take on something new.
But then again . . . , maybe it's only the chamomile talking!
What's inspiring you today?
Hope it's a great new month for you!
