From our creative genius, Marcella Hawley:
To me, the most relaxing scenes are composed of elements that feel familiar, with touches of nature, style, and beauty. My home is composed of little still lifes - arranged on shelves, tabletops, windowsills, and basically anything that is not moving. This springtime still life is similar to what I'd set up in my living room: a Susie Cooper teapot filled with fresh-cut roses and trimmed branches of flowering dogwood, piled on top of a stack of decorative books (the books have to have cool-looking spines with great colors or nice typography, or they will not make the cut). Completing the scene, a straw hat with a millinery rose and berries, to suggest we've just come inside from gardening. But who knows if we have? Maybe we've just been sitting here, coloring up this still life.
I love the combination of dogwood branches and roses!! I felt like the roses needed to POP boldly and that’s why I chose bright purple for them.
Now I’m ready for Spring! How about y’all??
