The Sunny Side Thoughts from Jackie
With the Elegant Barn Sale just weeks away, I thought I would try and get you amped up for the event! Touching on the category of our name. “CITY CHIC” , traditional styles with contemporary twists. Like sleek metals with exaggerated curves.
Modern art, bold colors and mercury glass.
A loft apartment with brick walls & urban design. ARE YOU GETTING THE FEVER?
From skylines, subway art, industrial & modern to roof top & balcony gardens these are all elements that can make up “City Chic” design!
Our “City Chic” aspect of the Elegant Barn Sale is sure to be classy, smart, vogue & sophisticated!
And Country Charm
Let me take you there…
The rustic patina of a plank table
or a weathered wood cabinet.
Imagine stepping barefoot onto ruff hewn barn wood floors, or dozing off on your own sleeping porch.
Inhale the sweet smell of fresh hay, fields of wild lavender & snips from the backyard herb garden.
“Country Charm” is farm fresh eggs, attic heirlooms, handmade quilts & plump berries right off the vine. Chili cook offs, the crackle of a campfire, fireflies & roasted marshmallows. Make your way to the country to an authentic farmers market or a weekend ho-down!
Ahh…..to live in the country is so charming!
I do believe “Country Charm” is my personal favorite. But, personal feelings aside,
The “Country Charm” aspect of the Elegant Barn Sale is sure to be…
Delightful, Alluring, Quaint, Rustic & Unpolished. So why don’t you join us for some original
CITY CHIC AND COUNTRY CHARM!!
New Years Day
As I stepped out the garage door to take my morning jaunt, the briskness hit me quick and heavy~I turned around and went back inside…for a hat! As I started my short journey, immediately I heard it…..nothing!
For a Friday morning there wasn’t a car on the road. I just embraced the silence. My feet crunched in the uninterrupted snow. In the distance a wood pecker hammers away on an unfortunate tree. As I round the corner his hammering disappears.
Then, a swoosh of a car, then another, then silent again.
I ponder the day, January 1st, 2016~WOW~ another year gone, another 365 days I can never get back! Makes you think huh? How fast time goes, how speedy our little lives just rush right on by.
I’m not interested in resolutions. In the past, when I’ve tried making them, I failed within a week, maybe two. They are just depressing to me, shows my failures more that progress. So what I do like to do is get a fresh start, a new outlook on my life. Re-evaluate my goals, learn from some of my past mistakes or procrastinations. I don’t commit per say, but I do take a long hard look. How can I spend more time with the ones I love, make better use of my time? I’m not trying to quit something or start something, just make what I already have better, stronger, sweeter, happier! I want my heart to sing, I want to seize every opportunity, be more creative, think freely; I envision great things. Today!
Now! Every today, as it comes, don’t wait for tomorrow, but love today!
It’s gonna be the best day EVER!!
Enjoy your today…it’s the only one you get!
