the pacific northwest has a reputation for being the epicenter of grey. the wonderful thing about being blanketed by grey skies is it allows one to really and truly become a connoisseur of grey-- to see all of the subtle differences in they sky as various cloud poufs roll through or stay for a spell. the deep dark greys that bring wind are dramatic and wild. the white grey that falls to earth in a shimmering mist is vital to the green foliage (and my skincare regimen). we have entered the time of year i like to refer to as "drippy." the big, fat drops of rain that plop in december are sweet. they are visible as i begin to dress the house for the winter holidays. the outdoors have inspired the holiday decor this year and include a mix of wood, crystal, flowers, re-used paper, pine cones and the such. you know i'll share more photos once we have all of the decorations in place.
happy tuesday. xo
