perfume of the roses in the warm
garden breeze could stop its hands
time would go still and freeze."
There has been so much activity in my life lately and all in such a short space of time! So many changes in just a few months. Sometimes change can leave me feeling a little bit lost and unsure of what to do with myself. I'm having to remember, or re-learn, how to be still and relax instead of pushing to do more and more and more. It helps that it feels like summer now. Everything is green and warm. My house has been full of leftover wedding flowers for the last week or so and their beautiful fragrance has made it feel like a garden. Now that the frantic pace has slowed down I am trying to find ways to relax and calm down after all of the excitement. Inevitably I am turning to the same things that always make me feel like myself again. Pretty things (smile). I sat in the garden one afternoon and drew a new picture, I am reading a favourite book, and I have made a point of getting up in the morning before work and taking some pictures while the light is so nice. I've missed having time to do that! I gathered all of my beautiful lace pieces - antique lingerie and handkerchief bags, pillows, doilies - and set them together. I love lace so much! I've started to study the history behind my favourite kinds of lace because I find it so fascinating! These pictures are just a glimpse into my small collection of lace treasures. I hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of summer as much as I am!
