Little Bits of Normal

A little corner of the world, infused with the same perfumes it had in a different corner miles away.
We move boxes....
Treasures are unearthed
dusted off again and given a place.

Work spaces are rebuilt, walls are painted shades of the ocean in the Bahamas
and the sun moves in its same old ways, bringing out new beauty in the wood
and glass
I have long loved.

Small pockets of perfection
Mountains of boxes to unpack

exciting note:
record collection discovered in the carriage house
permission given to listen
record player purchased:
finally records will be heard in my home (I have a small collection from my Poppy)!

I wanted to show a doorway animal to you:
this is in the kitchen.
Our bedroom has a lion,
my studio has a fox
the bathroom has a hippo....

they make me smile sooooo big when I walk by.
This house has a huge soul and I cannot wait to know it well!

Love to you all!
