"for a simple house there nothing more divine
than bringing the outdoors in."
A mason jar of flowers.
a bucket full of pine cones.
a platter with rocks.
whatever is in your yard or park...
bring it home and set it up for display.
I've been reading the late Elspeth Thompson's book, The Wonderful Weekend: Reclaiming Life's Simple Pleasures, and she mentions that one of the simplest things you can do to seek a calmness in your home is to go out into nature and bring it back home.
This weekend, grab a mason jar, a pair of scissors, and some walking shoes.... go for a stroll.... and bring something home.
My Iris's decided to bloom this weekend, so I have some around the house. Each time I see them I am remind myself to slow down, take life in, and to relish in the moments around me.
what will you bringing home?
