I've Been Away from Here...

 For some reason my life seemed too hectic to get to my blogging place, really this safe space where everything seems gentler somehow.  This is a photo of a recent show in May, Farm and Frills at the Barn.

 This one too.   I loved this show.  It was like going home for me,  visiting dear friends from my old neighborhood where I had my shop years ago.

I intend to find my way back to this sweet space...I hope you'll still come visit me here.   
I cannot believe it is June!   
My wedding flower season is here with a flurry, so I'll be sharing pictures soon.

I have missed this space.

You can find me at my business page on FB just click in the right column to find me!

I hope you will.

If The Shoe Fits

I love these shoes...vintage 80's Docs.   I grew out of them for awhile.  Maybe I thought I needed to be more professional or they just weren't right for whatever reason.   

What I have learned in these past about 9 years (when our family moved and left family, and a house and i sold my business) is that things are not always as they seem.  

That some things we go through will just never make any sense.  Ever.

And (a harsh reality) that some people will just decide they don't like you.
For the first time in my life...I'm so okay with that.
(please don't take as long as me.  please?)

There aren't many things that I'm sure of except this...
That there is not a thing we go through that is ever wasted. 
They are re-purposed and we become wiser.

I have stopped "striving" but will never stop seeking.  

And it's spring...I will be digging and sowing seed like I haven't in years.   It's such a labor full of hope and trust...I love getting my hands dirty and staring each morning at the ground to see which seeds are up.
There are bouquets to be made and shared.

And my old flowery docs?
They fit again perfectly.

Embrace your journey and who you were created to be.
No one can do you better.

Happiest Spring Ever.

More Daylight

Days will be getting longer starting this weekend.

That means digging up the soil and cleaning all the flower beds.

Oh how I love a fresh start!

That is what I've found here on my new blog as well, along with my new business name,

Vintage {Lilli}

You see, I have a tendency to go off in lots of different

This spring I am determined to be more "focused" on those things that I am passionate about.

It's about finding my way back to doing what I love.

How do we venture off in so many directions?

It's as if a light has been turned back on in me that had grown dim when I wasn't watching...

But now, not only am I watching...I can really see!

And I will be listening too.

Just not to any more of the "noise"

"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:  when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade"
Charles Dickens

Find your light,
