Fond Farewell.

Friday, January 21, 2011
After months of hard thinking about ending my blog I've come to the conclusion that I don't want to do it anymore. It's just not me. I'm not a writer. My blogs feel deeply narcissistic to me. To me. It's funny because I don't feel that way about someone else's blog. I champion them and their creativity and willingness to share with so many. It's just not me. It's not who I am. It feels inauthentic. I can't do it anymore. I love you all that have followed my little blog and supported me. You are sweet and wonderful and I will miss YOU! Terribly! But I must move on. I'm done. And it feels right.


Soft colors.

The last post with those lovely photos and their soft colors got me thinking about the Shabby Chic trend. Rachel Ashwell was certainly onto something more than a fad. It has stuck around for more than a decade now, continuing to sell her wares in Target and, happily, she is opening Shabby Chic stores around the nation. Maybe we'll get one here in Utah? I'd like that. In the meantime, here are some of the current rooms you can see her hand in...even if she didn't design them.

This piece is called "Book Lover." How many hearts do you see?
Each of these pictures make me grin. I love the candy colors. Maybe it's that Valentine's Day is right around the corner? Or the pastel and vintage colors are speaking to my desire for Spring to come?
