Easy Elegance




I just purchased a copy of Atlanta Bartlett's book, Easy Elegance. It is full of ideas on mixing the old with the new and celebrates something I am passionate about - individuality!! The top image I have posted is my favourite picture in the book. I love the layering of flowers on flowers...so beautiful!

I've come to really enjoy Atlanta Bartlett's style as well. I'm sure her books must be a wonderful source of inspiration - I really must purchase a few copies!

they are the same colors, and to me, it's like the mason jar and flowers are a 3D effect upon the photograph........

after a few very stressful days it has culminated to be sitting at work feeling very stressed and wound up. what to do when you're stuck behind a computer without respite for another 7 hours? look at your blog and get some visual therapy and instant relaxer. thank you for the beautiful images you collect and create which whisk me off to another place. xx
