My Shabby Sanctuary

As we get closer to spring I like to surround myself with soft, pale florals

Rachel Ashwell is the gentle inspirer of faded and shabby sanctuaries. Most of my own 'sanctuary' is filled with her home decor

my Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic writers desk and newest book

a quiet corner to read and write

the turqoise pillows and faded florals give just the right amount of color to the all white palette I find my calm in

 my new Tiny Flower notecards~ faded rose

These tiny flower watercolors are printed as notecards/placecards from my original paintings. They bring just the right amount of softness to my shabby sanctuary. I hope they will bring a gentle wash of shabby chic to your cottages and spring gatherings.

Sea tidings,
