I love decorating my home with branches from trees growing in my very own back yard. They're always at hand, always beautiful in whatever vase you place then in...
I love the young fir trees growing in the woods behind our home. They're everywhere, and they flexible young branches are perfect for cutting. I love how their green branches get bathed in the warm light of the sun, and how the green needle-shaped leaves hold itty bitty stars on rainy days, after the rain stops and the woods get watered down... I cut some yesterday and brought them in...
For some inexplicable reason as I was cutting fir branches all of a sudden I saw Mama Luna in the depths of my mind—the dark Spanish eyes illuminated by wisdom, roses pinned in shinny dark hair... old legends and myths dancing in her tongue and hands...
Mama Luna used to say that the beauty of a woman's soul can only shine through her when she is being herself, and always always reminded us to be who we are regardless the circumstances or people surrounding us.
"Never bend and fold into shapes that are not yours", she would say... "it isn't wise to insist on being a butterfly if you are a bird". Mama Luna was so right. Certainly, there's a difference between things that beckon to us and things that call from our souls. We should not be afraid to live our life in our truest self.
Any way... what was I saying? Ah yes, I spent my Sunday afternoon playing with my jewelry.
Do you like shiny, sparkly, glittery things? I do! I love all sorts of girly blings and sparkly things... jewelry isn't just good for dressing up an outfit... it can also dress up a bedroom, or a bathroom... display them in creative ways. A tarnished teapot to display your gypsy bangles and necklaces... love it!
Integrate your favorite pieces into your bedroom decor for prettiness and easy accessibility..
Why hide them? Colorful necklaces and sparkling earrings can add character to a dressing area
That's it for today... I hope you enjoyed my little story and photographs... ask me, if you want to know more about the enigmatic Mama Luna. I have so many stories to share... oh and can I ask you for a favor? It seems that some of my friends and readers from the house in the roses are having a hard time finding me in my new home and I would love if you would advertise my new place in your blog... a huge thank YOU for doing this!
Good night everyone!
