Living Graciously, Artfully, Frugally.

Consciously taking notice of the gifts each day places in our path.

Simple Sunday photo.
I am taking a break until September to get some things in the real world accomplished. A bit of fluffing, some hammering, painting, freshening, hopefully a bit of finishing projects to share.

Enjoy the rest of August. I'll see you in September, P.
P.S. Melissa at Creating From The Heart is having an unbelievable Give-Away. Go sign up!

Have a wonderful, productive and gentle time the rest of August. We will miss your postings but will await your return in September. "Will I see you, in September, or lose you to an August love?" Okay, I'm a little silly this morning, but it's Monday. Sea Witch

Yes. When you live in an unchanging climate the sun still comes into the trees at a different angle.
The shadows on your driveway slant low.

Your words were poetic.
Enjoyed your post.
