Decor Inspired by Nature

The other day, I mentioned my desire to update my bedroom's decor, and I decided to go along with a similar topic again today. I hope you don't mind.

When I'm out and about and find something that is unusually pretty or beautifully designed, I'll take a picture of it to add to my dream collections to hopefully be able to use them as ideas in my own home someday. Do you do this too?

Here are all the pieces/decor that represent inspiration drawn from nature:

I truly love this splash of beautiful pink sprigs twisted into a wreath. I did make this purchase and have this hanging up in my dining room. It may be a more seasonal item, but it's so lovely that I keep it up all year. Bought at Joann's Fabrics.

Another seasonal item that I found to be perfect for a rustic home. Probably easy to
make yourself. Found at Target.

How amazing is this unique table? My love of butterflies must definitely show. I found this at Ross merely a few days ago and so badly want to return and purchase it if it is still there.
Peacocky. The colors here matched with the glittery shimmer of the
paints. This would be a beautiful item to display balanced as the color
piece with candles and flowers of neutral shades. Discovered at Fred Meyer.
I hope you enjoy these inspirational pieces. What would you use them for?

Happy dream decorating,

Em

Blossoms & Light : A Pastel Photoshoot

How glorious are the delicate blossoms that sprout in the springtime? It is my most favorite thing about the arrival of springtime - the little pops of pink and white littering residential roads with tiny pastel petals after a gusty wind flow. 
A few weeks ago, inspiration sprung up at me while admiring the poppy pink trees on a drive through a windy country road. I was on my way to visit my sister with my DSLR camera in tow. Our plan was for me to practice portrait shots using my new 50 mm 1.8 f/s lens with her as my subject, and since I was still an hour and a half away, I called Stephie and asked if she knew of any blossoming cherry trees nearby for a chance of scenery. She didn't.
When I arrived, we drove around with our sights set upon finding the perfect setting. We found it serendipitously - in an almost-empty field at the local community college. It was perfect! A single tree with downy white petals bubbling around its dark branches, surrounded by emerald green grass and …

Creating Pockets of Adventures

Blessed. This is the perfect word to describe my life. While not everything goes in the direction I hope, nor does it ever happen in the ways I plan, it's mine and I have joy. More often than not, I face obstacles and sometimes rather painful experiences that I find to be overwhelming at times. All the same, I conquer. I have faith in a few things: a higher power, that higher power within me, and in myself. Faith always carries me through and has brought me to where I am.
I think my life to be somewhat average in many ways. I am not poor, but I am not wealthy. I can usually obtain the things I want if I plan for them and budget in most instances. However, I wasn't always affluent enough to afford small luxuries, such as my beloved Starbucks habit or my car. These two things would have exceeded my budget by far if I were 23-years-old again.  
Though, one thing that I am wealthy with is ambition. I've always been wealthy with ambition. If I want something, I find a way to m…

A Spring in My Steps

For those of you who have followed me for some time, you must know by now that one of my favorite spots here in Seattle is Green Lake. There's something so serene in walking the almost-three mile path around the lake - all while never even leaving the city. It's a short drive away and I find myself longing for a visit when I think only of its lush natural scenery and everything you could want in a park.
I went to Green Lake earlier in the day than normal and spotted these lovely little crocuses, reaching their aubergine-veined petals through the soil. I see them every year scattered about the city, but something about how they always reach for the sky makes them so relatable. 
Starting my walk, I noticed the eerie sky and how white it was with overcast - there were crows cawing and screeching from all over, fields and branches full of birds. My assumption is that after all the earthworms were about and crows were swarming to get a shot at their evening meal. 
Concluding my wa…
