A Deep Breath

I have so much going on right now.  I worked pretty much non-stop today.  My intention was to share a redesign or two, but I ran out of time, and energy.  Say a prayer for me. I have a lot to accomplish in a short period of time.  Right now, I just want to take a deep breath.



The scent of lilacs always calms me.  I went outside and picked a few.  Placed in my vintage aqua jar, it's a serene sight.  I need a little serenity from the chaos right now.





The sun was shining, and it looked beautiful against the weathered grey.  Taking photos like these calms me as well.




I'm going to work a bit more, then crash.



Tomorrow is another day.  See ya soon.

I feel your pain. Sleep good and wake refreshed. Take one thing at a time...try not to look at the big picture or it may send you over the edge. I'm saying a little prayer.

Hope things settle down and your lilacs are absolutely amazing. Across so many thousands of miles, it calms me down as well.

Rosemary...I am so glad that you took the time today to smell and enjoy the beauty of the lilacs...to sit down and take a deep breath...for when it comes to the end of the day...what we remember are those moments...of stopping and smelling "the lilacs"....

Rosemary - take a moment to stop and smell the lilacs... we don't want you to burn out. love, love, LOVE your blog and ideas. Many of which I have stolen to use in my own home. Looking forward to many new ideas and projects from you in the future.

Donata @ DK's Craft Cafe said...

You know you're still fine if you can stop and 'smell the roses'. Or lilacs.
That's one of the most important things in life.
The strength of your spirit is just amazing, Rose!
Be blessed as many are blessed through you :)

Yes, definitely take a breath and take some time to recharge. You do amazing work and I want to thank you for all of the inspiration that you offer to us. I have been reading and re-reading several of your past posts and I came away with lots of ideas for future projects. I especially love your old world finish technique with gesso. Brilliant! I gave it a try on some old frames and a plastic Infant of Prague figure. I loved the results, did a post about them, and linked back to you. thanks again for a great blog!!

God Bless,
Kathleen
