A Pacific Winter

Pacifique Hiver {French}
Peaceful Winter

"There is, one knows not what sweet mystery about the sea, whose gentle stirrings seem to speak of some hidden soul beneath." 
~Herman Melville

"Always remember that the ocean delights in feeling your feet in her eternal bath."

The nordic grey {of our newly painted cabinets} washes throughout our home leaving the peace of the Pacific Ocean.  I have kept the holiday decor minimal by using white trees, seashells, driftwood, silver balls and stone Madonnas {with white feathered wings}.  The trees are topped with sea maiden crowns and adorned with a few white starfish.   A Pacific Winter for our holidays.

Advent... pearls

"The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it."  Matthew 13

I have entered into the quiet chambers of  the Advent season.  A profound peace falls gently like dew on the meadow of morn.  I listen and wait.  This afternoon I watched tiny tiny birds, with a hint of cerulean blue, fluttering about the branches.  My eyes filled with water, moved by their sheer beauty. 

 beautiful pearls 

The peace of Advent be with you.

Nordic Calm

"Slowly the sun disappeared as sheer grey clouds descended upon the valley.  The gentle flow of raindrops began falling upon the dry earth." ~Kerrie Sanderson

  We are almost done painting our kitchen Pacific Grey.  It is French Nordic in style and gives our home such calm.  I look forward to sharing it with you.
 I am closing my etsy shop on December 1st for the Advent season.  I decided to slow down and embrace this holy season.  
Wishing you all a peaceful Thanksgiving.
See you in December.
