I love this picture of the original structure of the Oak Park Conservatory. Not because I get photo credit (OMG! Yes, I took this picture!!!) but because it just looks cool.
On this rainy Monday I found a heart that fell from above in the midst of a storm. It got me thinking about the life lesson I was reminded of this weekend: How we treat others is a reflection of what we hold in our hearts. How we treat ourselves is also. Have a Joyful rainy Monday! xo Whitney
This ornamental grass is growing in our neighbor's alley. Its colors caught my eye. If you look beyond the rusty red there's a lovely violet woven into the braid-like texture of the ends. The violet color is more dominant depending on the position of the sun. I hope you are able to admire something beautiful today! xo Whitney
Here's a flower arrangement similar to the ones our toddlers create at Joyful Day Montessori. I have a picture tutorial up on our site today that shows how to modify this typically adult activity for younger children. Here's to creativity!
I love the detail on this grapevine wreath I purchased at the Farmers' Market last week. Each little vine seems to have a mind of its own - just like our toddler friends! ❤
Shhh... Mums the word. ;)
Yes. Hay is for horses. Especially ones that can reach over the fence to munch on one formerly circular bale. A big shout out to all my Canadian peeps. I'm missing you and your wonderful Tim Horton's. xo
