"The beauty that addresses itself to the
eye is only the spell of the moment; the
eye of the body is not always that of the soul."
I came across a photo not long ago - I am not sure who it was by - of a room with an ornate settee covered in beautiful lace boudoir pillows, scarves, and various lovely things with a mirror in the background and a shelf with more objects and baubles. The photo was lush with beautiful things placed haphazardly here and there and I loved it immediately! Everything looked as if it had recently been touched laying across a cushion or stacked in lovely disarray. It inspired me to take this set of photos full of beautiful things displayed together in one beautiful 'mess'! It is amazing the unique and wonderful things you can discover when you are not trying to make everything perfect! I have also included an old sketch of mine. Have a lovely sunday and remember to look for beauty in imperfection!
Everyone always asks me where I get the beautiful dyed ribbon roses - they are grouped in a bowl in one of these photos - they are from the wonderful site http://www.meadowstreet.com/. Definitely worth a visit!
