"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" Leonardo da Vinci
1. flowers monochromatic. i prefer one color. it's so much prettier.
2. doing the laundry. i enjoy this. i like putting everything to rights in my life, clothes included.
3. wire basket from target. it's cute, it's inexpensive, it's for organizing- of course i'm going to love it. and it makes a nice home for some washcloths.
4. analog alarm clocks. pretty. and makes me work just a bit harder.
5. homemade rice crispy bars. perfect.
6. glass canisters to pretty up ordinary things. why shouldn't cotton balls and q-tips be convenient and beautiful at the same time?

Sigh. This post made me smile so much. I agree with everything on your list---especially monochromatic bouquets. You can use even the cheapest, most ordinary blooms and they still look spectacular amassed in a single color bouquet...

And I love your image collage, too!

I wish I liked doing the laundry as much as I like rice krispie treats. It would make my life so much easier.
Thanks for the reminder to think about the small things. They really add up.

What a nice little collage. Makes me smile. It's amazing how much beauty exists in the every day things we usually wouldn't look at twice!

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
