The Earth Mother is a motif that appears in many mythologies. The Earth Mother is a fertile goddess embodying the fertile earth and typically the mother of other deities, and so, also are seen as patronesses of motherhood. This is generally thought of as being because the earth was seen as being the mother from whom all life sprang.
The Rigveda calls the Female power, Mahimata (R.V. 1.164.33), a term which literally means Mother Earth.
So I am hoping to use this blog more often as I have been inspired by several others blogs. We will see how it goes!
I am inspired in my crafting, art, decorating, everything by many different things. I would like to think I see the beauty in things that even are not typically 'pretty'. Of course there are all those very pretty things as well. Of course I have a head full of ideas and actually doing any of them are not always possible. Thus the use of this blog to categorize and keep track of the things I love, the things I hate, the things I actually get the chance to do!
Here are a few images that I think speak to my design aesthetic.
Above: A beautiful craft center! Love the light open feeling! Picture from Pottery Barn.
Above: Dinning Room that is my current inspiration for my own. I recently painted one wall green and another yellow to pick up on the colors in my curtains. I wish I had the moldings all done the same! Picture from House Beautiful.
Above: Country Kitchen! I actually like the colors in my current kitchen better but I love the usage of the pops of green inside the cabinets. Picture from House Beautiful.
Above: Oh how I would die to have stairs that were not only painted but had this much character! Somehow this sums up everything I love about decor! Who could not love this? Picture from Country Living.
