~ new year... . new chance *

.   . . ...  ~  *
ok.... .   .     .
sorry to hang the holidays out there so loooooong
after it was over~


(  . ... but i just love all the *  lights ~  * *   *  )





well i hope you got by to see my

" b r o w n     h o u s e "

store windows... .   . ~



.   . . ....with lots of
paper tassels
painted tassels
&
     tassels of light.

but now the

*  s e q u i n e d  *

dresses... .




.  . . ...have been changed out for the

 '  s t i l l   w i n t e r  ' 

 sweaters and jackets.


the silver chandelier
has come home again to live with me.

( inconspicuously above my table ~ )


and yet even though the ribbons
 have been detached
           and stored away... .   .



.... along with clearing out what's no longer serving us
or what we want to move on from,
we can focus on attracting
what we want new in our lives~



and so
with all the gorgeous choices
of lovely things to feed myself... .   .


this new year, this new chance

i shall choose my

*  n o u r i s h m e n t  *

wisely
&
 mainly... .  . with my heart ~

"  bon  chance  "

~ jasmine tarts......

~ the sweet, intoxicating scent of Jasmine flowers* ... .  one of the first blooms of the spring !
i love this Jasmine and just want to roll in it and eat it and.... . Become it ~* !
i end up making anything i can think of out of it ~! first, of course... . is a Tart ~ * you know, i've come to love my limitations, as they keep things and decisions so comfortingly simple.
so...... i have just ~1~ lonely pear  in the fruit bowl on the table &  a few berries in the fridge.
then i noticed another first bloom... . my striped rose ~* . ... so that had to get tucked in for a bit of taste and color. the sweet pear sliced very thin to show off the beautiful seeds & core hiding inside. ~ sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle ..... .   . and there you go, a true Feast for the eyes, palate & soul ~ *
~ be sure to make some Jasmine sugar to use for everything ... .
. ......... and bake ~ * ~ so sweeeeet !


~ ~ * flowers from heaven... . . *

flowers... raining down from the sky ~*
from the ether~*
.....purely delightful ~*

this time i put in a ' fresh ' floral installation  as backdrop for the new merchandise ~ ~ *
i started out with  just a few sprigs of fresh ranunculus blooms & some flowering greens gently hung by ribbons and colored string with a backdrop of just cut blossoming branches  suspended horizontally behind ~ * ~ * such a nice, new energy of the fresh florals to be in the mix and part of the props this time.
.... it's like having a friend there creating the Vision with me ~*




~ well....... all that's needed now is  a simple yet elegant Gardener's frock to step in this scene ~
