~experiencing fulfillment in seeing transformation happen in both the natural, your home, and the spiritual, your inner self~ How creating beauty in your home can stimulate inner spiritual growth!
I look at the arrangement I have set up in our morning room and I hear the word Simplicity~
It came about so simply~
My daughter so generously bought me the gray serving dish and pitcher for my birthday. I recognized them from Target’s Threshold line and instantly fell in love with them~
I’ve always gone for white dishes and serving dishes because of their versatility, and they simply go with Everything! But I was excited to receive my new pieces in gray~ I now say gray is the new white…simple!
The beautiful plant came from my son when he came home from his college internship recently for a visit before school started up again! God love him, he Never comes home empty handed. Somewhere along the line, he realized that gifts is one of my love languages! 😉
So I just plopped the plant in the pitcher and I love the look~ It hasn’t moved since…simple!
The yellow napkins and twine napkin rings are from the Target Threshold line also. I love how they add subtle color and texture to the table. I tossed them into the serving dish one night when I decided to use paper napkins, and there they stayed…simple!
Lastly, the glass jug filled with pussy willows came about as a simple switch out. I had bright yellow silk forsythias in the jug for Spring and Summer. Although it pained me to move them, because they were so bright and cheerful I had to do it in order to officially usher in Fall! Now that I have them, I love them. They’re a sweet childhood memory, pure and simple!
One of my favorite sayings is, “Less is more”, and I find that is often true in decorating,
…and in life!
Other quotes on simplicity that made me stop and ponder:
“There is a majesty in simplicity.” (Alexander Pope)
“Live simply that others might simply live.” (Elizabeth Seaton)
“Our lives are frittered away by detail . . . Simplify, simplify.” (Henry David Thoreau)
How have you implemented simplicity into your lifestyle?
Let’s share ideas…
Smiling with Jesus!
