always refreshed and inspired by the island!!!!

a tight ball of unobservable potential
opening to the opulence of petaled glory
then: fading, fragile, feminine
shedding that which is no longer useful
paring down to the essence
retaining elegance; beauty of a different sort
dedicated to those women of a certain season of life who walk this path with elegance and grace
Are you getting a sense of the place???
Really quite small, filled with pieces having lived life alongside their owners, now waiting to bring new life to another space.
Focused, carefully curated, each piece an individual treasure.
Always such a joy to visit Miss Vicki – to see beauty through her eyes.
I’ll be back in August for another family event in Crossroads!!!
Christmas at Crossroads, of course, included a visit to Miss Vicki at Homepieces in McKinney- always on the cutting edge of casual home design…her unerring eye captures the latest trend…cutting boards!
the tales these boards could tell…
perhaps of the aroma of freshly baked bread…
or of the succulent heaviness of aged fruitcake…
of the hands fashioning their design,
or of the journey bringing them to this particular place;
now looking for a new home and new tales to tell.
Human communication……flawed at best.
Many years ago, adopting a phrase used often by a dear friend, changed my internal reaction and verbal response to what I hear…when I make the choice to ‘grant grace’.
Granting grace………allowing that unseen circumstance, past experience, present situation may influence the words spoken and how the words are heard.
Grace: Webster’s definition 9 a. – the freely given, unmerited favor and love of God.
Choosing to grant grace…even when perceived to be unmerited: freeing, loving, elegant, attractive, merciful…
the grace of a new dawn……freely given with love
May your day be filled with moments of grace – granted and received.
