“See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone.”
1 Thessalonians 5:15
You all know how much I love books…to read, to decorate with, to get lost in…I just love books! A couple of days ago, as I was rearranging and stacking books, my eyes were drawn to my collection about Provence. Long before I ever visited this beautiful place, I dreamed about it and knew I wanted my feet to walk those cobblestoned streets! For so many years, travel was not attainable for us, but I did the next best thing…I visited through books! The warm colors, the fragrant smells, the earthy tastes…oh I wish I was there now! Books made it so that I could get lost in a place that I had never even been!
Where was I? Oh yeah, the family room! As I took a little trip to Provence via the stack of books, I was inspired to create a vignette that is all things Provence! My garden is full of sunflowers, lavender, and rosemary this summer, so that was my starting point…and everything else just fell into place! Provence is one of my favorite destinations and hopefully we can return, but until then I can enjoy my colorful little spot of Provence in the family room!
I cut sunflowers, lavender, and rosemary from my garden and placed in bottles for an impromptu arrangement. Provence is famous for fields of lavender and sunflowers….rosemary is widely used in cooking.
Even our local grasshoppers love these happy blooms!
Thanks for traveling to Provence through my family room with me today…you can see more of our real-life trip here!
