a stylists' autumn booklist

 

Falloffice

It would be virtuous to claim that I am a mother first, or wife, or activist, or whatever.  The truth is I that can never really take my stylist apron off.  I mean, I was a stylist first!  Spirit shows me all things through a graphic filter.  Our home is organized around beauty, truth & goodness, in that order.  Luckily, beauty is subjective.  

 

So while the house falls to delicious shambles on an hourly basis, between brunches, rehearsals for an upcoming Dan Zanes concert & 8-boy playdates, there's always a carefully curated Autumn display on my dining buffet.

 

Can I please share what's beautiful to me right now?

 

Givingthanks

 

The very act of contemplating gratitude.  Thanksgiving comes & goes with the meal.  But Giving Thanks is eternal.

 

Spinningwheel

 

This old thing.  Their entire physics curriculum in one object.  Over 100 years-old, 1 family-strong from Japan.  And really all things old, practical & useful.  

 

Acornquilt1

 

This King-sized Acorn Quilt by D's mama & his 95 year-old grandma (GG).  Exquisitely made.  Somehow, by the grace of God, on my very own wall.  More love made visible.
