how do we bring out the goddess in us all?
I need constant reminders of the tender care my spirit needs. things as simple as flowers on the mantle, a massage, an uplifting book or poem, a long talk with a good friend, a walk in the woods, solitude, prayer, nurturing my creative side bring great joy. maybe deep joy is the key to our self-care.
what ways do you nurture your inner goddess?
hope your day is filled with remarkable moments of joy. paz,k

yes please...

hermes cape cod watch. yes, a gal can dream big....
I've had my eye on this baby for a while. saw it first in a domino or elle decor article (I think!) as one of the 10 items a lovely artist couldn't live without. well, if I had one I'd likely agree with her. wouldn't you?

door spells...

I used to live in a Chicago neighborhood that has the most wonderful store filled with vintage fixtures, collections and embellishments. Architectural Artifacts is almost like a museum but everything in it is for SALE! Enjoy these gorgeous doors. They have put a spell on me. Where would you like them in your home?

have a blessed day! k

swing time...

just watched swing time with ginger rogers and fred astaire. the dancing in it was incredible (though one scene was dated with its theme - you''ll see). she is so lovely to watch. this is definitely another movie to view on a cozy rainy day. makes me smile.
have a sweet sunday! k
