~ Mother Nature ~

la luna 
Last night I was mesmerized by the Moon. I love viewing the sky, but not usually in July. I gathered my camera and my son's telescope, braved the heat and the mosquitos and was rewarded with these beautiful photos. I found some equally lovely Moon-inspired quotes to share.

The night walked down the sky with the moon in her hands.  ~Frederic Lawrence Knowles

When I admire the wonder of the sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator.  ~Mahatma Gandhi

Happy Friday! ♥

~ Inspiration ~

mint and coral travel photo by lupengrainne on etsy
The color coral is grabbing my attention this week. This lovely photograph was taken in France and has beautiful detail.
coral head scarf by taniahillberg on etsy
I wear yoga headbands almost every day. I tell myself that it keeps my hair healthy because I'm not overheating it with blowdryers and flat irons. This wrap has great color and I love the texture.
appetizer plate by ceramicabotanica on etsy
This fabulous hand built plate was featured in Good Housekeeping magazine! Everything in this shop is amazing and each bowl is also hand painted.
Abe Lincoln quote by marykatemcdevitt on etsy
Fabulous quote and beautiful colors. This print couldn't be more perfect.
Happy Saturday!

~ A Few of My Favorite Things ~

rustic step photograph by seventen on etsy
Black and white tones. They are so soothing, so intriguing. This beautiful photograph is no exception. I  can almost feel the texture of the steps.
van gogh quote by ohmydeer on etsy
I found this print while browsing on Pinterest. The quote and the presentation are equally lovely.
zebra pocket totem by handymaiden on etsy
Total cuteness. I think this would be the perfect back to school surprise for my little guy's backpack.
