A Touch of Morocco....

I love the Moroccan look...tho it isn't just Morocco but all across the Middle East...Beautifully handcraft items & furniture....The colors & textures...the patterns & wood carvings... the jewelry & lanterns.... & don't forget the paisley!!...all of it is just gorgeous...It is where I originally got my idea for the Indigo in the bedroom.....One blog I have gotten so much inspiration from  is India pied-à-terre...Definitely check out her site if you love this style of decorating...Lots of DIY projects too....

So much of this style can fit into a budget because you can make your own version...
& that is where all those flea markets, yard sales & thrift stores come in...

I would love one of these so I am working on a knock-off version for later....
I will recruit the Hubby on this one...

This is why I love the Bohemian look ... it's an inclusive style...especially the Middle Eastern decor.... It is the original Hippie style..

Indigo...

What the color of our bedroom walls will be....I have mostly white or cream colors walls in the house...Now I have decided to go outside my comfort zone.,.. The Hubby loves this idea...& We both love this aged Indigo color so it works out well.....The walls in this photo are what I have in mind...with much different & more minimalist furnishings...
Studies have shown that you sleep better & longer in blue rooms which in turn help prevent depression....  So it seems that blues actually keep you from getting the blues......
So the walls will be an aged looking indigo...lots of texture... 
but on one wall I am doing a raised design...similar to this...
just so its presence will be a slight hint...I am not sure what design I will use yet...but I have a few ideas..
So this past week I have cleared out the room that will eventually be the bedroom.....
We were also given enough wood that I think we will be able to lay down a floor...happy dance here...
I will be posting before & after pictures...I am excited to try this...

Here are a few of the images that inspired me to choose Indigo in the first place... ....


Have a great week everyone!

The Barred Owl...

We had a visitor today....
 Apparently 8 squirrels are enough to attract some attention....
I went out & took pictures &  taking to this pretty guy for awhile...He hung around for about 20 minutes...We were surprised to see him...I am glad the girls were tucked safely away in their home...

He gave me a courtesy look but was too busy 
eyeballing the squirrels that were running for cover... 
Got to love the rural life....

Ready for the Full Moon...

I finished the meditation table in time for the Full Moon tonight! I am really happy with how it came out & how it makes the room feel...Buddha seems to be very comfortable on it... The energy in this area feels great...



Now I am off to do a releasing ritual  & then meditate...
Enjoy the Full  Moon tonight.....

DIY Friday- Candles & Oak Apple Mandala

This week so been so productive I am still wondering if it actually happened...I decided for the New Moon I would post some furniture for sale that I have been procrastinating about... not that I wanted to keep any of it...just getting around to posting it on the sales sites...Well I did & every piece sold for the price I wanted.....YAH!!!  Plus we got to meet some really nice young people who were buying antiques to furnish their homes....This has opened up a lot of space for me.....
the energy is flowing!!

Now I am finishing up the projects I have started...I have this tendency to get three & four projects going at a time so I am stopping that...Meditation has shown me that your focus should be one thing at a time ....mindfulness...

Actually I came to that realization today about my projects while I was doing this Mandala Meditation on an Oak apple .....With the amount of multi-tasking today it is no wonder we have "monkey mind"...we have so much going on in our lives that nothing gets done & your mind clutter goes into overload ......So for me, this coming week is project clean-up....

I started with some easy ones today....Beeswax candles...I have had the supplies sitting there waiting...so when my GF Jeanette brought me a couple big boxes of old fashioned canning jars...(I am talking the big quart size!!  it was Christmas for me!! Thanks J ) & there were some jelly jars included in the lot that were perfect for candles...

The recipe I used was very simple...you can find it here
Natural, non toxic.... you can make alot of candles for the price...
& it is fun!!
I added my favorite scent Patchouli for the essential oil...
Now to enjoy!!  

Have a great weekend everyone!!
