This week's entry touches a special place in my heart because it shows artwork by a child :)
PC, a mother of 2, sent in this photo showing a corner of her home. Interestingly, this is a TV console that does not house a TV, but is filled with kids' toys and family portraits. Isn't that idea so heartwarming in itself? Occasionally, PC places fresh flowers - either roses or daisies, to fill the air with beautiful floral scents.
The highlight of this space is a canvas painting hung on the wall. It was her daughter's attempt at Van Gogh's Starry Night - her very own interpretation. Although she may continue working on this piece, I already love the vibrant hues she chose and how this piece anchors the space.
You may want to pop over here to see photos of PC's kids' room :)
Thank you PC for sharing this special place with us!
This next part of this week's post is an extra piece that I feel compelled to share. If you are looking for decor ideas though, I'm sorry to have to disappoint. However, perhaps you are on the same journey with me - trying to be conscious of beauty around. You may then enjoy this little story :)
2 days ago, I woke up late and was a bunch of frazzled nerves. I was bustling around the house getting ready for work - washing up, changing, packing Bubbles' things to take to my parents' place etc. As it often happens, I was flinging things around, stomping here and there, and pretty much working myself up even more as I glanced at the clock 587329 times.
Then something magical happened - I walked past my laundry area. It sounds funny I know, but I was taken by this:
The order of which the clothes were hung, with a graduation of soft pink and blue hues, made this pleasing to my eye. I almost immediately felt my frazzled nerves calm down a few notches. I started to notice the newness of the morning air, and the light breeze blowing through the house.
I'm still amazed that this happened. All because of laundry!
Are you a visual person too?
If you have had a similar experience I would love to hear your story!
Do you showcase your kids' artwork at home?
