My Colorful Life

As I look around my house I realize it has evolved  
to reflect my colorful life.

And by that I don't necessarily mean the ruby reds, emerald greens, and sapphire blues ...

... but a multi-faceted life that is rich and saturated 
in creativity and imagination,

... of collections and treasures that express my love for young and old,

... of a life rooted in tradition and gathering family,

... lived happily under the roof of a place of comfort, retreat and rest. 

A colorful life which I cherish everyday.

I love the colors in your home. I felt at home when I viewed them all right now. And, I've always admired the way you go after your creativity.

I can't decide what I like best - the shelf in the kitchen, the juicers or the chalk. I'm enamored by the chalk. I don't think I've seen that work. Hmmmm

Great pictures and narrative, Michelle! My favorite picture was the last -- the one with the knitting and spools of thread in a candy jar. And I don't knit or sew! You so talented and creative in so many ways! I wish I had that gene! Merry Christmas! :) xo

You're as colorful as your home, girlfriend! Great pics of personal items that really reflect the owner.

And, say, is that a painting of moi that I see in the background of your studio? Hmmm?
