So…who am I?
I enjoy a magazine laced with beautiful homes nicely furnished.
Driving into a neighborhood in the late evenings, when its dark, I see strangers homes that dare to leave the blinds or curtains open and lamps lit. Myself, eager to catch a glimpse of that very private space they allowed to go public that is just for my eyes, dare to dream and imagine what the rest of the space could hold.
Just to walk into a yard with green grass and the smell of fresh flowers… so alluring.
When the need for new clothing arises, the first thing my heart desires to do is… go to a thrift store or a garage sale along my path. I would rather find a gem tucked beneath an orderly pile (I do not have patience for messes) than anything else.
It’s in these moments that I realize someone greater than myself knows what I desire and has ordered my steps.
Flowers that catch my fancy, and the luxury of taking them home and preparing what I hope to be the perfect little oasis in my garden, make working the precious soil with my hands and carefully placing the delicate, living beings into their new environment an important hobby of mine. The pleasure I receive in watching a growing and thriving plant come back each year, greeting me again and again, keeps me ever in pursuit.
I have, and forever will be, a wanderer for the best things in life. Often found in the not so desirable places. Pearls… in the sands of time, wait to be recognized, valued, and taken to be mine.
I am a lover of new things that have the essence of an undesired past. Items that have been tossed to the side or kicked to the curb for my eyes to see beauty, strength, and a new future for them.
I am a very simple but complicated sort of being. Creativity constantly driving my passion.
This is why I have created this blog… to document my loves, and the search and rescue of things that catch my eye and have the potential to be something more than they are.
If you find yourself, as you read this, saying to yourself… “I love that!” or “She enjoys that too…” Well, my new-found friend, engage with me. Let me know of your presence so we can share this road together.
