Simple Beauty With A Book and Fresh Flowers

Don’t you just love simple things that are beautiful?  My father in law gave me a ton of old books last year and a few had covers that were falling off so I didn’t feel bad removing them all the way. I added some twine and a key to one and it is looks so perfectly simple and pretty to me.

I love how there is still some glue on the edge and it gives it texture and a little color.

What could possibly make this look any better?  How about a mug of fresh green flowers?

And maybe even a quote.

Georgia O’Keefe (famous artist) lived in Canyon, TX which is about 10 to 15 minutes from here.  My son and I spent the day there Saturday.  I got a pretty neat photo of  him at an old railroad depot.


Speaking of photos…..don’t forget to link up to my Portrait Party going on right now until 6pm central Wednesday.  Get out your camera and snap some photos of your family and link them up here.
