The Tapestry of Life

August 21, 2013


Weave the tapestry of your life with love and all will appear as divine art 

An outfit inspired by a love of texture, structure and design. Being such a visual person, I’m forever excited by the richness that surrounds me in every moment. I’m drawn to clothes and jewels that ignite my senses, both flowing and structured, layered with texture, and beautiful thought out details. Anything that jingles is an added bonus for this modern day gypsy woman :)

As I adorned myself this day, in pieces of absolute art, I pondered on the concept of life being like a rich tapestry. Both sides equally beautiful in their own right. The underside chaotic, knotty, tangled and frayed. And the other displaying it’s perfect order, intricate patterning, majestic beauty. Both sides equally important and necessary for it’s existence. In life we so often reject the uncomfortable, chaotic and sometimes darker side of our nature and lives. Where life feels as jumbled as the underside of the tapestry. The flip side is to experience a life of love, abundance and effortless ease. Where life flows without worries of the past or tomorrow. When life feels more like the messy frayed tapestry, I try to surrender to what is, love and accept what is, and I so often find myself effortlessly and naturally return to the other side.

With love and gratitude,
