The Imperfect Perfect
There is something comforting about things that are rather well worn and a bit tattered per say.
Old Hat, New Hat by Stan& Jan Bernstein.
Mr. Bear is shopping for a new hat and after trying many hats on,he puts his old one back on his head and declares it "JUST RIGHT!"
What makes certain, old things so alluring?
Is it the story behind it, or the lack of expectation we may have for it?
After all, it's old!
In decorating it's called( shabby chic.)
Hosting guests can at times be reason to stress, especially if I feel somehow things need to be perfect.
Over the years, I have learned some of the best times were had when company showed up without a lot of notice. This way everyone can relax, and I don't have time to stress about the details!
So next time you're feeling like things are less perfect than you've envisioned,
Take heart ;and remember ,this could be a big step
in the direction of ultimate perfection.
I love old gardens best- tired,old gardens
that rest in the sun.
