A FEW SHOTS OF COLOR ON THESE COLD GRAY DAYS......
I think most of the country is covered in snow, ice, rain, sleet or just sludge.
So I wanted to send some springtime to each and everyone of you.
As you know...I live in AZ and it is mostly sunny here..altho...we have had a few very cold days of late.
These are a few shots of my home. I LOVE COLOR....in case you can't tell.
And the light in AZ makes these warm colors just pop. This is my guest bedroom...just found the spread for these beds...the design is called KARMA..I just love that...It reminds me to be nice to everyone I meet...because you never know what is around the corner in your life.
You can also tell...I'm not afraid of color. This wasn't always so. When I was younger I stuck to very bland color design; but as I have gotten older..and somewhat bolder..this is so much more fun.
I've had much of this furniture for years and just keep adding a few things to keep it fresh. The bench is covered in an old horse blanket..but it fit my pallet perfectly ~ so home it came.
I found the lovely chest in Canada on Salt Spring Island...had it for years...but it is still loved.
I've had this beautiful lady since l992. She used to have a much more silver cast to her ~~ but I just applied a little bronze shiny paint here and there and she fits right in, too.
I have lots of Buddhas around my home. They calm me and make my space feel special. I always drape jewelry around the neck as I love to see things I love displayed on a daily basis.
The frame behind the buddha used to hold a mirror...but I have repurposed it to hold one of my favorite art photos that was also purchased on a trip up in Canada.
And of course....my ROSES....have to have roses. Hope you have enjoyed this little JOLT OF COLOR TODAY.
It makes me smile EVERYDAY!!!
For those of you dealing with cold and snow..
I would like to leave you with this quote: "I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape~~the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show."
