I chose this week's post because I am in the midst of moving. I wanted something that was fresh and new, to reflect the wonder and possibilities... the creativity awakened by change.
A new beginning acts as a muse that inspires me to take chances, to be playful and to have a new point of view. As I unpack my wardrobe I see it as a brand new trunk of costumes.
...and it is time to play dress-up!
I have a hat, a coat and a frilly frock. A gypsy's collection of odds and ends. I bring with me my comfy old chair and I can make a proper home anywhere.
A ballerina skirt and a pair of waders along with yards if fabric to tent my walls; I will decorate my castle and myself with the same unbridled joy.
Ruffles and a rocking horse... Whimsical.
Draped in silk chiffon...
Wings ~ every angel, flower fairy, and dragonfly needs them.
A buttery yellow evening gown and velvet chair...I am enchanted.
A white cloud of taffeta sweeping across a sea of fur pelts ~ this must be heaven.
The dreams of new surroundings.
