Bringing Nature Indoors

I love nature...the splendor it offers and the hug of loveliness it brings each day. I wanted to share a few photos of the beauty that we are so fortunate to have at The Homesteading Cottage. We have no idea how long we'll be here, but I am so thankful for all of the hard work the owners did to create this oasis in the city.

The photo above is of the side yard and part of the drive. We have such a variety of foliage and blooms on the property...hydrangeas, purple coneflowers, roses, crepe myrtles, day lilies, daisies, vinca, bradford pears, brown & black-eyed susans, eucalyptus, hostas and phlox, just name a few.

On our walk early this morning I couldn't resist bringing some of that beauty into the cottage and decided to cut a few pretties for my office desk. The photo above is just a small snip-it of the kitchen and reminds me of a butler's pantry. So nice!! The perfect spot to put my little arrangement together (: I'll share more pictures of the kitchen later on.

The crystal glass added the perfect touch of sparkle to this simple arrangement. So, the next time you're out and about, think about bringing a little nature indoors. A sprig of greenery or blooms from outside can do wonders for the soul. If you don't have a garden in which to glean beauties, grocery stores have clusters of bouquets for just a few dollars. With a little creativity they can be turned into something glamorous for the eyes. Grab a little color and brighten your space'll be happy you did (:

With Gratitude,
