#change for the 7th day of the #soul_selfie Challenge . . I have come to understand that issuing change , influencing change, ushering it into my life takes as long as it takes. . Set patterns, pathways in my brain are willing to budge after much much work. My understanding morphs so slothlike and so gradually that I doubt my efforts to court and create the change. And then one day someone reminds me of how I used to be. I remember my old fears now long since tossed out. Perspective and acknowledgement are always the key to permanently setting your accomplishments on your trophy shelf. Change becomes a good thing once more. I adore all of you for participating in and witnessing my Fourth Soul Selfie Challenge. I began it as a way to connect and acknowledge my need to understand myself better. And I proved others needed that too. I love you all! Thank you. A wrap up will be on the blog next week probably. I'll let you know. . #gratitude#mantel#interiors#autumn#trendrebel#challenge#mywisdomlessons#selfdevelopment#liveauthentically#nothingsordinary#taleswithfriends
"Interiors" is the theme of this week's #fjnine, hosted by @flots_n_jets and guest host @moerks. The 9-blocks are like mini-magazine house tours. I'm having fun peering in. How about you? Care to join and share your 9?
Like Juls @ourgentlemadness and Jill @jabtrc I admit a partiality to pink, the hotter the better, with boho glam thrown in. A floor cloth which hangs in our bedroom (there's a smaller version in our foyer) and the detail from an antique chair with swan heads painted in gold. #trendrebel
A peek into my husband's office. After Juls @ourgentlemadness posted a fab photo of a library with a day bed I thought I'd share this room. In our big downsizing I was determined to keep this day bed and to come as close as possible to the 15 foot bookcase we had in our previous home. So we built this much smaller bookcase for his political and sports memorabilia to frame the day bed. #happy. #trendrebel ?
This is a space I made for myself. I love to cook and my kitchen is my creative expression space. If in a day I do nothing else creative, I'll have made food. (Don't get me wrong, if I had a personal chef I'd be happy too.) Would that my writing space had this feeling of freedom and expansiveness. Both in the real world and in my head. Because I believe your living space is a true reflection of your internal space. #taleswithfriends#fionamariepeach#kitchendesign#trendrebel
Did you all hear my husband.laughing when I mentioned. I was plumb out of collections to share for #magpiemonday ? Here's a teeny sampling of what he found in the garage for me...apparently, I have quite the flock of magpie cabinet hardware! I do love these simple chippy reminders of way-back-when (and I don't have nearly enough)! Thanks so much for hosting, @gentlemadnrss_homeworks & @chris_belcher4 & @quince_cottage & @hoodcreeklogcabin #happymonday #funfinds. #chippy. #vintage. #hardwaresociete#collections#beachlife#trendrebel#junking
