serenity now....


as the clouds roll in amongst the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina,  
treat yourself to a 60-second break and allow the birdies to serenade you.
ahh, yes.....sweet serenity!  xox

inspiration monday

every time i flip through my walls notebook,  i always ask myself
"what in the world am i going to do with this page?"

but thanks to the wonders of pinterest....and this quote......

along with a little available transportation.....

and lots of inspiration.....

the answer was easier than i thought!

little mountain house

i have become quite intrigued by this sweet little house nestled in the mountain trees.
and while i don't know who lives there,  i would imagine that one thing is for certain.....

that such a cute little house surrounded by such tremendous beauty
surely must be filled with lots and lots of love!

inspiration monday

when it comes to being at the crawley house.....

i think the service-life downstairs can be just as exciting and inspiring as
the Grantham-life upstairs.....

especially when there's such a sweet anna-and-mr.-bates love story going on!

inspiration monday

on those days when you feel creative but find yourself a bit in the dark.....

 just put on a happy face.....

and always keep looking towards the sunshine....

 because inspiration will chase those shadows away with a few strokes of your paintbrush and some doodly marks with your favorite pens.....and it's guaranteed to brighten your day!  xox

the rhododendrons, or "rhodies" as they say, are in full bloom here in the mountains of north carolina.  mother nature has completely outdone herself by giving us delicious pink, purple, and white's such a blessing to be here to see this!

wishing you a colorful, creative weekend!  xox

inspiration monday

                    it's  downton diary time, and one thing about the Crawley family that always inspires me is the fabulous dialogue,  the "friendly banter".....

and the great advice....

given by none other than the sage of wit-and-wisdom, herself!

there's nothing better than a good dose-of-violet to get your week started right!
