~ changes... . .


by now, this surely should be a
g  o  o  d
word to us all.

~our friend.

if not... .
the concept and it's reality
is truly rather painful, is it not?

standing in our
f e a r... .
we think changes will take us
further and further and further

away from our safety. from ourselves. from our comfort.

b u t .... .   .       .

actually the REVERSE is true.

this dreaded
c h a n g e ~

is by divine 

'Life as we know it'/

 interruptus... .   .

.   . ...bringing us closer to what we want.
what we need.
what's comfortable.
what's good.
who we are at the core ~

even if we aren't yet ready to deal with the question of
'who we really are'... .   .

our essence will guide us.
it's only goal being to be true to itself.

the hard part being that we often travel the other way.

thinking... well, that's silly. that's too easy, so
that can't be it~

i must strive.
i must learn.
i must conform.
i truly must suffer for it.
( whatever the heck 'it' is... )

then be paid a lot for it.
 honored and rewarded for it.
and probably wear a white shirt while doing it.
and certainly don't equate happiness with it !

so.... .    .        .

now that we got these misnomers out of the way~

here's to what rings true for us.
what we feel compelled to pursue.
what we recognize as ourselves.
what we want and
what we love.
what we then want to share.

~ here's to our
chosen or happened

flowers... raining down from the sky ~*

.....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 ~*

~ 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 !
