February Styling the Seasons

I am calling this post chasing the light.   My intentions were good, everything planned; then time and circumstance seemed to plot against me.  The clouds rolled in before I could take any photos, never mind I thought there’s always tomorrow so a new plan was forged.   I woke to find the sun really wasn’t wanting to wear his hat, he had hidden himself away behind the persistent dark painted rain clouds and stayed put all day.   I set things up, left the room for a while, kept coming back in hourly intervals but the light didn’t want to play.

Change of tack I thought lets go moody with a grainy washed out texture, so lets see, how does February look for me?  Well most certainly a bit on the bleak side.   Art is not imitating life I hasten to add, this month seems to disappear in a flash, the weeks have been filled with celebrations: Valentines, pancakes and many a birthday party.  Now we are nearly at the end and we are to celebrate another special day in our house as Ruby turns 11 this coming Saturday.   A full week of fun has been had and the streamers are at the ready for her party at the weekend.

So light or no light I found these blossom twigs calming, with a nod to Spring and a sense of simplicity placed in one of my favourite spots at home.  To spend a few moments to be still and just be.  Me and the blossom before the excitement builds again.

    Oh, I love the tone of these photographs and the styling. So calming and peaceful. That daybed is also completely perfect and I think I need it to be mine! xx

      So hard when the light is not on your side Katy. I do love my daybed, Ruby had a sleepover in it the other night it turns into a double bed so most versatile! Jx
