Inspiration by invitation...

A few of my favorite things... French Chateau's, Peonies, vintage and Astier de Viallatte. Surrounding yourself with people and things you love is the ultimate luxury. They don't have to be the trendiest, newest and the most expensive or but they should be what makes you laugh, smile and bring you joy.
"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, to all bravely await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony."
William Henry Channing (1810-1884)
Today's post is part of a wonderful group of bloggers who have been brought together by Marsha over at Splenderosa
. This quote is a great example of how so many of us would like to live. Stop by and see what everyone has come up with.
Wishing you a wonderful start to the short week!
