Yes... it's true.
I am having a love affair
and I simply cannot get enough of my muse...
pretty ruffled petals
sweet blush color
an intoxicating scent...
Ohh those gorgeous cottage blooms!
On the dining room table,
in the living room,
in the kitchen,
A vase overflowing with them
is just perfect.
They bring a bit of romance,
sweetness & french cottage charm.
Yes, I am entranced by these beautiful Peonies.
Loving the pretty shade of pink mixed with
mercury glass candlesticks
and a ruffled drop cloth tablecloth.
On the chalkboard behind them~
a favorite inspirational quote for the New Year
"The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream.
The oak sleeps in the acorn; the bird waits in the egg;
and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs.
Dreams are the seedlings of realities."
I absolutely love this quote.
I'm feeling so drawn to the muted grays,
creams, silvers and pale pinks right now.
They are so serene and they are inspiring a few photos
and changes around the house.
The look of the weathered silvered wood
of this bistro chair next to the
delicate pale pink...
Just a little touch of Spring in January today!
I have a list a mile long of things I am
am planning to work on right now... isn't that how it always is?
new year, new goals
to actually cross things off the list instead
of bumping them further back!
do you follow French Country Cottage on Facebook?
I shared 2 links yesterday that my baby sister found and sent over
that I feel are fantastic reads for the New Year.
Here they are if you would like to take a peek
The first one is about what to START doing for yourself...
The second about what to STOP doing to yourself.
and if you don't follow
I would love to see you over there too!
Hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start!
