In Your Beauty

"In your light I learn how to love.  In your beauty, how to make poems.  You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that light becomes this art."
~Persian Poet Rumi 1207


Something beautiful arrived in my mailbox this week...
"Vintage by Nina, a divine mess"
 "It is spectacular and serene, colorful and pale." ~Nina Hartmann

The beauty in Nina Hartmann's latest book A Divine Mess captivates and quiets the heart.  I think it is her best book yet.  The book begins with a focus on Theatre and ends with Yuletide.
"Life is like theatre." written in script across the first page.  All of the pages have a divine atmosphere that are wonderfully eclectic.  The Christmas pages have inspired me like none other.

You can purchase A Divine Mess Vintage by Nina from Tracie of My Petite Maison.

  We recently pulled out of storage a treasure from my childhood...a creamy white, chippy Vintage Dresser with fading mirror.  My mother bought this antique dresser for my baby room.  It is made of mahogany wood and is very heavy.  I grew up with it in my bedroom from my infancy until I went away to University.  My parents returned it to me after I married.  We used it in my daughter's room when she was born.   It has been stored away for the past 7 yrs.  Right now it is in our laundry room but someday I will use it to grace a guest room.  Until then, I am happy to have it in the house again.  Isn't it a vintage beauty.
