The Beauty of Simplicity ~

beauty>noun (pl. beauties) a combination of qualities that delights the asthetic senses
simple>plain and uncomplicated in form, nature or design

Simple bleeding hearts and a vintage netting hanky ~
Simple pink peony resting against my potting shed~ Simple vintage rose that graced a dress I wore as a child~ Simple pink spirea blossoms ~

Take time to enjoy the simple things in your life every day ~

I have always loved this song:

Simple Gifts

"Tis the gift to be simple
tis the gift to be free
tis the gift to come down where you ought to be
And when we find ourselves in the place just right
It will be in the valley of love and delight".

Also, just a little exciting news for me. I was asked by Christine Annette to be an author on her blog Faded No. 22 and I happily obliged. My first post is up so be sure and check it out. You can click here .
