Rustic Color Haiku

Vibrant colors play
Baked a little by the sun
Perfect mellow hues

It’s no secret that I’m all about vivid and natural patinas.


In fact, in a lot of ways, I think that aging is beautiful!


I just started realizing that our house and yard are my palates…my biggest canvas.


You’ll find splashes of color everywhere…


perhaps it’s my attempt to celebrate and remember trips to Mexico, where bright, rich, and wonderfully weathered colors rule.


There must be the law there or something!
