breath in...and out...slowly

 The person who lives in a quiet house has plenty.....

seeking the quiet corners of our home after months of preparation,pushing forward to be ready for events that is booked back to back from August through to December 15th

 re-discovering textures, shapes and familiarity

 first offerings from my rose garden

 so content right now, even if the rush stopped for only one day..I could gather my thoughts and "see"

I wish you all.. a time to pause...

   Colette X

This beautiful printed cloth from a very special friend sums it up

I am on a journey...
with my work, my explorations
and a few sad stories
I travel with a suitcase full
of outrageous blessings
I am on a quest for truth,
beauty, and quiet joy
I am an artist, a writer
and explorer

Hi Colette,
I like that first picture with looks like an angel sleeping...I like quiet and I always welcome a pause to breathe slowly. Always good to see what's going on in your beautiful world.

Poetic. If I am ever lucky enough to be bored...I polish my silver and bask in the beautiful lovely silverness of it!

Did you see my Library post? I have my Edgar Allan Poe books in a small conservatory very much like yours!
It is so nice to see you when you pop out of your hectic life!

Wonderful treasures with different textures and shapes and oh! I can almost smell the perfume from that glorious old rose and the fragrance of old books bound up in time.
