A boost





I don't want to simply survive the winter months. I want to see if I can find little beauties, simple pleasures, that are unique to the season. Take the winter light, for instance. The brightness of it is arresting. Combine the light with a fresh clutch of flowers and it's a little boost for the day or week!

winter light is especially beautiful and yes enjoying and surviving are two very different things.

Very pretty! I know what you mean. When the skies are grey and snow is brown and its cold out life can be so dreary!! I'm trying to keep a smile on my face and look for beauty too.

ps. your sis is coming over tonight for book club!

exactly the way have been passing these last winter months -- throwing open curtains and filling rooms with bouquets of fresh flowers

hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

I love that white bedroom--makes me want to throw out all my gray bedding and start again. I hope you are having a lovely new year so far Julia and taking it easy and just enjoying!! Sending you lots of love and good wishes for many happy days ahead!
