~ Thank You ~ Finding Inspiration ~


Hi friends
THANK YOU all so much for your comments of  love and encouragement on my last post in regards to my aunt Jenny passing from Cancer.
You all  touched my heart and I thank you so much.

I woke up to my house filled with beautiful light this morning and I was inspired to take some photos...


I moved my antique shoe rack to my dining room and changed things up a bit this past weekend.
It was helpful to do some rearranging to take my mind off losing my precious aunt.


Fresh flowers always help brighten my day..
My little Claire on her favourite perch watching me..



I love collecting antique white ironstone pieces.
I find most of them at thriftshops and they are very inexpensive.



( Enamel pitchers from Ikea )


My french bottle carrier is perfect for flowers





~ Have a beautiful day ~

Rachel

I do believe that moving and changing things around us creates a new aura around us, too. I'm sure your Aunt is in a much better place and free from pain...even though your earthly pain will continue as you miss her. Blessings and I am praying for a healed heart for you. xo Diana

You have such a special way of creating beautiful vignettes, Rachel. ♥ I'm glad that you found some comfort this weekend in doing a little fluffing around your sweet home. It looks so pretty - and your photos are gorgeous, as usual. Hugs to you, sweetie. Oh, and what photo-editor are you using? I'm having a hard time deciding which one to use.
