ShukuruMutaraI hope you've had a beautiful holiday weekend! Our Christmas was so nice. It was a happy, quiet day, and we felt very loved with all the thoughtful gifts we received from family.
I did not do quite so well as they did in the giving department this year, but I did love fostering Shukuru and Mutara (gifts to my sisters) again this year through the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya. Among other significant conservation projects, the Trust takes in and raises orphaned elephants and rhinos. With a small donation, you can foster a young elephant or rhino for a year. I'm happy to report that Shukuru and Mutara (each almost one and a half years old) are thriving.

So Sweet

Yum. I saw this sweet scene on the lovely greige today. Perhaps I'll try to create it in our home.

Ball of String

Every year, my mother would say that all she wanted for Christmas was a ball of string. When we were young, we didn't believe or understand her. Now I think I really do and I wish I could tell her that.

These are from antiquity by sadieolive, re-found via Bliss today.

Muted with old Silvers

Happy snowy Tuesday to you. I'm in a muted winter white mood today. With silver linings...
I think this space in Reed Krakoff's Manhattan home is beautiful. Look at the curve on those stairs. And at that Line Vautrin mirror collection. The silver pieces from my inspiration folder felt right today, especially with the mirrors.
