Cool, serene, timeless, inviting…. those were just a few words that popped into my head when I saw this photo from Savitri. I don’t know about you all, but it made me want to jump on an airplane and head straight to Rothenburg, Germany! It is my dream to live in Europe again and looking at this photo just makes me want to shout out, “Yes!! That’s what I’m talking about!”
There is something so special about Europe in general. The atmosphere is generally more family oriented and there is a deep national pride in their language and customs. They are confident, self assured, and why shouldn’t they be? This is the kind of place that makes me want to settle down, buy a bike with a little basket on the front, and bohemian style skirts. I would buy flowers for my window box for the Spring and display candles at Christmas. The door would be the perfect backdrop to a fresh evergreen wreath that would remind visitors with it’s glorious fragrant that this home is about life and love, timelessness and history, family and friends. Oh, yes! One can dream of having such a door as this!
As I thought about what inspired me from Savitri’s photo, I knew the colors were going to be the focal point of my project. The door alone could inspire countless projects, don’t you think? I created this page because I couldn’t resist documenting my son’s love for cars.
The journaling reads, “Even before he could crawl, Parker loved cars…Sometimes I just sit and listen to him ‘vrooom!’ Oh, the places one may go with a little imagination!” Just to prove my point he sat at my feet while I wrote this post “vrooming” his cars over my toes and across the floor.
I adore the card Savitri made! Can you see why I was so excited to feature her this week? She amazes me with her talent and is a constant inspiration to me!
