Couldn't help but post my new header before January ends. For the beginning of the year, I chose shades of brown and white (you know I love) as my color scheme. I love to change it often, like I do like to often change things around my home... to fit the season, to fit my mood.
One of the most delightful things to me is living seasonally, sensing the rhythm of the year.
Enjoying the coziness of staying indoors in Winter, crackling fires to keep me company while I curl up on the sofa with a good book and a warm blanket. Comfort food, woolen scarves and sweaters, mittens, earth tones all around my home.
In Spring, I love to awake to warmer temperatures after the long, cold winter, sow and plant and just spend time in the garden with my doggie happily sniffing the air, observing bulbs sprouting up from the cold earth, the teeny tiny buds on the bare branches becoming lovely flowers. Pastel colors become my favorites then, and I usually begin to cook lighter, more colored meals and to refresh my home and my wardrobe as well.
Summer brings along nights of star gazing and lots of time to spend outdoors, just working, walking or relaxing, bright and cheery colors, light clothes and an everending array of yummy salads and fruit to eat. It's time to jam making, to preserve vegetables from the orchard or the farmer's market.
Autumn in the end, gives us a palette of wondrous oranges, reds, yellows and browns to deeply savor, together with a bountiful harvest. It's time to nest and plan ahead for the Holiday Season, that will spread cheer all around.
So, here's my new banner, if you haven't noticed yet I changed it...
Hope your week is off to a good start!
