The Whiter Shade Of Pale

"I will always be on the whiter shade of pale."
~Rachel Ashwell

The Shabby Palette
soft pinks, grays, blues, and whites

"Old, worn, shabby patina... visual poetry." ~Rachel Ashwell

"White is a reflection of my basically shy personality."
~Rachel Ashwell

"I will forever live in white."
  ~Rachel Ashwell

There is no one that has inspired and influenced me more in creating my own home sanctuary than Rachel Ashwell.  Her new book The World Of Shabby Chic reminds me of just how sacred the beauty she gives is.  Upon opening the book it is as if a soft layer of her heart is gently opening and allowing us in.   I carefully turn each page and breathe in its delicate gift.   My heart flows with gratitude.  She is pure beauty.  Selah

thank you Rachel
