This morning after everyone had left for work and school, I noticed the sunlight pouring through our living room into a bookcase. I walked over and noticed how beautiful the sun was shining on these tattered old books.....how beautiful they were even with their rips and stains ~ I collect these BECAUSE of their rips and stains. They have character ~
Old speckled string ~
A beautiful framed print that was a gift from my son ~
Old door knobs gathered in a jar that has no lid ~ and a nest peeking out with speckled quail eggs.
All of these objects really have nothing to do with one another except that they have character and now that they are displayed on our bookcase, behind pretty glass doors, they have an importance again. Maybe not in the way of their original purpose but just to be loved for what they are now.....lost, found, and treasured.
A little shower prep update:
A peek at the corsage that I completed today!!! Plus I found the most wonderful Laura Ashley goodies for a prize to give away at the shower. The picks are finished, the candle mats are done. I'm working on more pom poms and will just quit when I get tired of making them! (which could be sooner rather than later :) I should get the flowers tomorrow evening so I can work on the tiny arrangements ~
Wishing you a very happy Thursday sweet friends!
