The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Tied Up With String. . .

Brown paper packages,
tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things!!!

I  l o v e paper!!!
I  l o v e string!!!
These are a few of my favorite things!

Imagine my excitement when I found
Hemp in the same hues as the color palette 
for the updating of Studio One!!!

Visiting with our local shop owner @ Roadhouse Antiques,
I inquired about purchasing some wooden spools. . .

Aren't they a m a z i n g ???

While I patiently await on paint and mod podge to dry, 
I release my inner creativity on the small details 
that make a huge impact on my design for Studio One.

Strand ~ by ~ strand. . .

those fibers send mental messages. . .

that become locked into my visual memory.

Fibers with imperfect qualities ~ and yet perfect shades of gray!

Placed beside the usual black and white. . .

these shades of gray bring peace and tranquility 
to my creative space.

Nestled together 
as a complimentary vintage decor accessory
in Studio Ones updating!

A vintage tatting lace doily
simply inserted into a vintage sewing basket.

Each spool patiently awaiting
that moment when used for
tying up a brown paper package!

These are a few of my favorite things. . .
