Pretty & Simple III

Family Ties
Sometimes it can be challenging to incorporate pieces of significance that may not be your style. This hand painted bowl is a family heirloom from China. My husband's grandfather worked overseas for many years & his grandparents gave this to us in celebration of our wedding. 

Drawing on the colors of the outdoors & a painting in our kitchen, when set atop our bright white table this bowl fits nicely into our home. I really enjoy its beautiful details & colors, but its family ties make are what make this piece special.

Signature Treats

A saying that reminds my husband and I of one another, a gift from my mom, sits alongside a vintage Ball jar of M&M's; the signature treat of our family. 

A Comfy Place

My "place of comfort" surrounded by pictures, beautiful light & wonderful memories.
