one of my favorite things to do lately is to make some time to just sit with hot cup of tea and write ....for hours.... it's amazing where your brain will go when you just give it the space to be creative....

Thought of this as an alternative to the usual door wreath 🌹🌸💐
Tarbert Parish Church. My great-great-great Grandmother Jean was married here. As I walked up the long gravel path to the doors, I imagined what she felt that day. Excitement, nerves, anticipation. I made most of it up. .
I have so many people say to me “wow! You know so much about your heritage and ancestors.” But I don’t. I know their names, yes. But I don’t know their stories. And I want too. I want to know what they were like, what they struggled with, how they stood strong in the face of their storms. But I don’t. And I’m worried I never will. Like a lot of families, mine likes to keep our skeletons where they “belong”. Buried. Buried under years and years of perfecting the art of “we’re perfect and look how we have it all together.” Let me break the news. We don’t have it all together. I sure as hell don’t. And I want to know why. I want to know the hidden legacy that has been handed down through the generations. I want to know what my future children will be getting themselves into. “Treason is not inherited” (As You Like It, Shakespeare) but trauma sure is. It gets buried into our DNA. It gets passed down generation to generation. But the key to unlock gets hidden. Left in the dark. Waiting for some son or daughter to discover it and open the door to healing. .
Here at Pastiche Cove, we love finding unique pieces and repurposing them into something beautiful and functional. We believe that beauty should not be at the cost of our environment. Every product we make contains at least one material that was donated. With a dash of love and creativity we are able to give these items new meanings in life.
I got $26 USD in donations in the last week for my free stock photography! How lovely is that?
And it’s awesome because I let it build for a while, and then I use that money to buy more beautiful stationary for more photos!
I’m starting to shop now and I’m getting inspired and excited for another shoot soon! 😄🌸😀🌼
I love a good before and after. We took a nice and simple laundry room and made it pop. After putting the first round of wallpaper up crooked 🙈 and having 3 shelves not work out 😭 we finally got it right. Swipe right to see the before!! 💃
Jeg har tonsvis af kreative halloween ideer, en kreativ hjerne holder aldrig fri. Ind i mellem bliver nogle af ideerne til virkelige ting. Nogle gange ender noget ud med at blive noget helt andet end den ide jeg havde da jeg startede et projekt. Vores venlige hus spøgelse her er sådan et projekt. Egentlig skulle det have været et græskar men inde i mit hoved ville ham her gerne ud👻 Og tre små katte blev det også til🐾 BOO 🙈 #sebech
