Rosey Disposition

Spring always seems to bring with it a certain rosey disposition. This is such a magical time for our mother earth, she comes alive again. Flowers bloom, birds chirp and the sun shines for the first time after a dark winter. I try to savour each of these spring time moments, carefully noticing all the bright details, especially the way our Creator paints the blooming petals of my flower garden. I spend a few moments each day meditating on the sounds of spring, just listening to the buzz in the air. I love the chorus of insects and birds humming and chirping throughout the day. It seems to coo me into a certain kind of calmness, like a lullaby perfectly written by my mother nature herself.

This is the first time in our lives that we've a backyard, or even so much as a designated outdoor area connected to our living space. We have a beautiful front porch, large back deck and below it a magical little oasis of a backyard. Since it's warmed up we've been spending plenty of time in the back yard. It's become quite a perfect escape. We've filled it with plants and flowers and I can't get over just how wonderful it is that we plant seeds and they grow into such magnificent and colorful little life forms.

Set a top our coffee table in this our secret backyard lounge is an array of rock salt candles. I have fallen in love with these radiant beauties. They range in colors from deep pinks to lighter peaches. Pink seems to have such a soft energy about it. And with candles lit inside these beauties, they radiate in a way that is so ethereal and relaxing. I just want to sit out there all day, sipping tea by the soft glow of these rock salt candles, enjoying a cool spring breeze amidst the afternoon sun. It is simply heavenly!

Welcome to the Jungle

Welcome to the jungle (backyard). We moved into our house last fall, so there wasn't much going on back there until now. It remained empty and mostly untouched. During the cold months we'd spent most of our outside time above the backyard, on the deck. But alas, spring is upon us. We trekked out to our favorite flea and collected an amazing, old, repurposed potting table and a little side table. We also grabbed some pots or things that we re-imagined into planters, like an old cast iron tea pot. We've never had a back yard before, so you can imagine our excitement. It's mostly concrete back there, so this potting table was the best way to have a garden. Easy to care for and more or less portable. Our flowers have already begun to bloom and how beautiful they are! 

This little nook of a garden is so filled with life and naturally, I also filled it with our latest SoulMakes designs. There's something so magical about the plants and crystal living together. There's a certain inexplicable feeling and aesthetic to it. We especially love using our various crystal candle holders as planters, they make a gorgeous home for succulents. We have a lovely collection of sea shells in the shop that make perfect table top decor. I'm quite fond, also, of how lovely a little air plant looks tucked inside the curling shells. I had a little smudging ceremony in this new sacred space, using our wildflower smudge stick. It made the backyard smell delicious and got such a good vibe going. My favorite piece out back is our new agate wind chimes, I love the soft sweet sound of them blowing around delicately in the spring breeze. Much of our latest home selection is so versatile, perfect for indoor and outdoor spaces. How will you decorate your outdoor space this spring?
