I woke up today with a light heart.
I don't know when and I don't know how, but somewhere along the line I had let a cloud of heaviness invade my mind. There was nothing I could point to that was wrong just a lot of tiny little things that I let steal my joy.
It may sound silly but I think taking control of my home, clearing clutter and prettifying my surroundings, has had a lot to do with the lightening of my mood. We are after all, visual people. I have purposefully set out to create an environment that feels soothing, a place to retreat to.
So when it came time to pick the fabric for my dining room windows I went shopping with the idea of finding a clean, calming, peaceful, neutral design.
And then I saw this...
And my heart began to sing...
So I bought five yards of it and today it's just me, my cup of coffee, my sewing machine and this yummy fabric. Sometimes you just need to throw caution to the wind and follow your heart and that feeling of peace will find you!
