In wintertime while nature sleeps, our mind is less prone to aimless wandering. It wanders more towards trying to see through questions that had no right time to be asked. It is so nourishing to read and give your mind a beautiful path to follow.

"There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself."
~Ruth Stout (American author, who wrote about gardening)

 

Hearing a new song or finding a new poem are simple joys that can make a difference in your day. Sometimes even inspire you to something great. Sharing discovered poems and quotes is a great joy for us. Carefully tucked into the pocket of each dress we send, is a bit of inspiration in the shape of a poem by Erin Hanson, a writer very dear to us. 

Simple pleasures can make more of an impact than we think. We just need to notice and take it all in. 

Don’t underestimate the power of a cup tea and sharing thoughts, dreams and a good book with your friends.

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.” 
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

There is so much beauty in the world. We should not be afraid to enjoy it. 
This winter, our thoughts and feelings found reflection in a beautiful piece, which we’d love to share with you:

“To hear never-heard sounds, 
To see never-seen colors and shapes, 
To try to understand the imperceptible 
Power pervading the world; 
To fly and find pure ethereal substances 
That are not of matter 
But of that invisible soul pervading reality. 
To hear another soul and to whisper to another soul; 
To be a lantern in the darkness 
Or an umbrella in a stormy day; 
To feel much more than know. 
To be the eyes of an eagle, slope of a mountain; 
To be a wave understanding the influence of the moon; 
To be a tree and read the memory of the leaves; 
To be an insignificant pedestrian on the streets 
Of crazy cities watching, watching, and watching. 
To be a smile on the face of a woman 
And shine in her memory 
As a moment saved without planning.” 
Dejan Stojanovic

 

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us better. 

With love,
