Now I know it's cliché, but I really can't believe how quickly this month has flown by, or for that matter this year. It's December in 10 days, December, really! I feel like someone's playing a trick on me. However, rather than dwelling on the few days left of what's been a very special year, I'm going to embrace each and every one. So I thought I best begin by sharing my November seven vignettes, before it's time to start dreaming up December's festive delights. So here they are..
Day 1 - Holiday. Inspired by daydreams of a Parisian holiday to wander the beautiful boutiques & ateliers.
Day 2 - Stack. Inspired by vintage, haberdashery and found treasures.
Day 3 - Hanging. Inspired by my grandmother's trinket box and the lyrics to Gotye's 'Hearts a Mess'.
Day 4 - Recipe. Inspired by my grandmother's handwritten recipe books.
Day 5 - Soft. Inspired by nature's enduring beauty & grace.
Day 6 - Reflective. Inspired by the ancient art of Tarot. The World symbolises completion.. the reflection of a personal journey.
Day 7 - Paper. Inspired by soul ramblings & journal pages.. my favourite kind of paper.
It was such a fun challenge to play along in November. With Miss Tallow often cradled in my arms while I fossicked for treasures and dreamt up ideas, I kept things really simple using my coffee table as a backdrop and working with bits and pieces from around my living room. As for my (kind of) theme, well my great grandfather was a tailor and I love vintage haberdashery, so my favourite spools of thread and a sweet doily of my Nan's appear throughout. I just adore visual story telling, especially with elements that contain so much personal history, like my Nan's beautiful recipe book and my own journal pages.
Now I can't wait for December's seven vignettes, every month I'm just so inspired by everyone's incredible creations and ideas. I'm already dreaming up a theme and searching for treasures to create a festive series of vignette delights.
