Being a grown up is so over-rated. I think we're all just big kids playing adult dress up. When my glamourous nana turned 85, I remember her looking at me and saying, "Mindy, when I look in the mirror, I am 30...or 15...or 50...sometimes my body feels older, but I am always me. The same as when I was a kid." It was a profound moment, realizing that we're always us inside, the sparkle that makes us us, just gets brighter.
You look fabulous! Yes, YOU!!! xo

But it's all beautiful in it's messiness. It's real, it's awkward, sometimes it's a flow, sometimes it's a mad desire to combine orange & pink, aqua & lime for no reason at all. But it does wash away the dust from every day life. xo

This aqua vintage canning jar is on my art table filled with sweet peonies, droopy & lovely, picked from my garden. And loveliest of all because I don't really have a garden (by choice, the green thumb skipped a generation) but I do have dirt & by some miracle, a stunning peony bush (plant? tree? shrub?) bloomed like a fresh flower market in a far corner of my front yard. I'm not questioning, just picking stems, saying thank you to the flower fairy & enjoying every lovely moment of them. xo

I can't explain how cool this image looks in the original photo I found--a beach house or shed or studio with an oversize flag made out of vintage nautical flags draped over the front. Something is lost in translation perhaps...as in, why would a giant flag cover the front of the house...? But, I'm sticking with it and asking questions later. I added the sign & the anchor. I'd be ok coming home to this after a day at the beach.
Keep smiling. xo
