Good Monday Morning


{first snow + Minnetonka mocs}

Good Monday Morning, lovelies! Goodness me, I haven't done a GMM post in forever :-) But where there's sunshine, there's happiness, and where there is happiness, there is inspiration. So, since it is a sunny morning this AM, I've got a GMM post for you! 

~taking in the happy explosion of color and pattern in my apartment while sporting a crown braid. Vintage couch, vintage beach bag, clothes steamer, chevron satin pillows, Kaffe Fassett wool hooked rug, closet/vintage clothing explosion on left.~

I've had these pictures of my old apartment on my desktop since I moved, because I enjoy looking at them. The space was very happy...very Natalie. I loved that anytime someone new came over they would glance around, smile big, and say, "Natalie lives here." I love the little corners, and thought I'd share a few with you this morning.

~Clean water around the world is one of my missions. This Hope photo holder with a picture of a family that we donated a water purification system to, gives me HOPE too, and reminds me to be selfless and grateful.~

Also wanted to share this great, great poem by William Stafford that was the Poem of the Day from The Writer's Almanac (psst...they have 20% off in their store with code "DANCE" today only, and that's not an affiliate link!).

Any Morning
Just lying on the couch and being happy.

Only humming a little, the quiet sound in the head.
Trouble is busy elsewhere at the moment, it has
so much to do in the world.

People who might judge are mostly asleep; they can't

monitor you all the time, and sometimes they forget.
When dawn flows over the hedge you can
get up and act busy.

Little corners like this, pieces of Heaven

left lying around, can be picked up and saved.
People won't even see that you have them,
they are so light and easy to hide.


Later in the day you can act like the others.

You can shake your head. You can frown.

Have a GREAT Monday and a beautiful week!

Great poem! I love the little pics of your apartment as well. I have been dreading blogging about mine because I can't seem to get it the way that I like it. I like the "little" corners you showed though. All kinds of post inspiration from you today. Thanks, Alexandra
