Way too tired to get crafty and creative, so I will show you a little peek into my favorite framed picture of me and hubby....this is the picture we had taken for our engagement announcements ten years ago this summer. We showed up at the little portrait place for just the generic in house snaps of a few photos. When he offered to go up the block to a park, we were quite shocked. We didn't pay for any extra on location shoot. We had fun sitting on some park benches, leaning on fences, and this one peeking between the trees. We had this matted at the reception of our wedding. People who were there signed it. In the past ten years so many of those people who signed it have passed in and out of our lives. Grandparents have passed away, friends have moved away, and so much has happened. We look so young....but, yes, it is one of my favorite framed pictures of us.
And just for the heck of it, this is another framed painting we have in the entry way. I try to follow a bit of feng shui ( I know, call me Best Friends with Crazy right now, but I need a little peace in my life!). Feng shui is a way of creating harmony between humans and our environment to enhance our well being. People are affected -either positively or negatively- by their surroundings. So if with a little placement of things here and there I can make my life a happier, healthy, and more peaceful...I say, "Pull up a seat, Crazy, let's talk"...
Oh yeah, where was I?? The painting....the entrance to your home should include a landscape.....kind of like a little entrance into a peaceful place. We try to collect local arts and prints from the many places we get to live. This one of course is the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. We got it because we loved living in the east bay. We had these beautiful rose bushes in our yard. This painting really combined the two memories into a living piece of art. See,don't you feel a bit peaceful all ready??
So did you play??
