Finding Beauty

Hello friends! This post with shots of my Cabin & Cottage shop space was made possible by the excellent photos of my lovely friend and shop partner, Celeste, of Cielo Heavenly Home Decor. Check out her exciting FB page for more wonderful photos of our little shop in Albuquerque.

These recent days have brought as many lemons as lemonade to distract me, but I have been loving our summer days and nights and the company of good friends and loved ones through it all.

I came across a good and wise quote to share.

"When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow."
Shauna Niequist, Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way

To clear my head and help my heart rate, I take early morning walks in our cool open fields to see the hot air balloons always soaring aloft, and just yesterday took to our mountains close by for the fresh air and wide vistas. I have taken up the good and useful motto in another quote I recently came across which says in part, "Live in the present and make it beautiful."

A life surrounded by lovely vintage treasures always lends itself to that! I am working a much smaller space these days, which brings a challenge of its own to keep things fresh. But my camera and I are still not spending much time together. To every thing there is a season. (Thanks once again, Celeste!)

I hope you too are finding fulfilling ways to spend your summer days. There always seems to be too much rain or too much heat for people somewhere. And that's just speaking of the weather!

 I hope you are finding beauty in your days.
