Thank goodness I had an beautifully rejuvenating weekend to draw from. Thank you to my amazing husband and kiddos for inspiring me to be my best and to love life. #fairmontkealanimaui #maui #hawaiilife #oakleysunglasses #lovinglifetothefullest #makelifebeautiful #turning50thisyear #recovery
Good morning friends! It's a rainy dreary day so I'm hiding in bed! 🙈 Any big plans where you're at?
Morning views at the studio. ✨ I'll be sharing a sneak peak of some fall picks today! Can you believe it's almost a new season already? I think to end summer with a bang, a shop sale and giveaway is in order. So stay tuned for all that! 💞 #goodmorning #studio #atelier #etsy #etsysellers #fall #autumn #etsysale #art #interiordesign #giveaway #lighting #vintage #antique #antiqueclothing #1910s #1940s #1950s #1960s #fashion #style #ecofashion #stratford #sustainable #floraandthewolf #makelifebeautiful

Has it been a wet summer where you live? 🌧 As I was driving through Northumberland, PA, I got a glimpse of the #susquehannariver ...holy cow! I knew my hometown area had a lot of rain, but the site of the river just blew me away. The debris and general color of the water are two hints of the major flooding that occurred north of where I was. Praying for all of those affected by this flooding! #pennsylvania_life #flooding #summerrain #toomuchwater

I love how even on the most stressful of days I can open up my Instagram and see the love and support and all the genuine kindness just shared by you guys. And I won't lie and say that I do it for you guys but I'm definitely glad to be able to share with you and go through it together. Because in life there's ups and downs, but together we can make a better world. 🌍☮️♥️☺️ #kindnessisfree #loveisreal #makelifebeautiful #youguysrock

It took me four years to nurture and grow a beautiful climbing ‘New Dawn’ @david_austin_roses in my rose garden. I couldn’t wait for this summer and the pale pink - and beautifully scented - roses to bloom. Alas, my rose bush died over the winter. Now I find myself mooning over beautiful images (like this one designed by @kellynuttdesign @forest_studio and photographed by @ryangarvin ) of climbing roses. I may just need to head to the garden store to buy another. Maybe this time I’ll buy two. #Repost @scoutandnimble ・・・ A courtyard that has us longing for endless summer nights.

#thatmomentwhen you walk outside for the first time that day and feel the indoors release you out into the wide-sky, openness of air, sunshine and new possibilities! Then at the other end, when your energy has been extended and mixed with the wide open, the joy of coming back into the sanctuary of home, being hugged by smaller spaces. These are the moments to notice... #thewideoutdoors #beherenow #megandthemoment #makelifebeautiful #magicmoments #truehappiness #bepresent #bringbeautyback #livewell #dontmissit #blessed #healthymind #writetsofinstagram #writerscommunity #everythinghasbeauty #everylittlething #itsthelittlethings #lovelife #beautifulmind

My days have been filled with canning cucumbers, zucchini, and tomatoes lately. It's so wonderful to grow and preserve your own food - but hard to keep up with the bounty we've been having! 😅 Between recipes, I've been doing some listing and sourcing too. This dress was listed this week (approx medium) and more beauties to come! 💞 #summer #canning #garden #homestead #thefarmhouse #preserving #etsy #etsyseller #homemade #slowliving #makelifebeautiful #1940s #1940sreproduction #sewing #vintage #sustainable #ecofashion
How do you see wellness?
It’s been a rough few days at the Lammens house with a teething kiddo, a virus, and multiple night time wake ups. Thankfully Mr. Cheerful is mostly back to his old self today 🙌🏻. Now we just need to work on this sleeping through the night thing I’ve heard other people talk about 🤔
making a home is personal. so when we move into a “new” space and adopt what the previous owners chose, it sometimes feels like trying to be someone else. which, of course, never works out. eventually, that catches up with how you feel about EVERYTHING else. :: :: a client purchased a home in a neighborhood she loved. it had many features she loved, so she wasn’t compelled to address the few that bothered her. they seemed easy enough to live with at first. by the time we met up almost a year later, she felt discouraged + clueless where to start making changes. :: :: the home was painted predominantly in neutral hues. and for some, those colors can be a cosmopolitan of stimulating + grounding energies. for others, however, they can smother. i inquired how she was feeling about her new home, and she replied: STUCK. when we don’t LOVE what we see, it can stall us within an inch of our lives. my client was ignoring her creative impulses because the color scheme did not resonate. the idea of infusing the space with money suffocated her because it would make the colors even more permanent. and she was hesitant if her husband would even be open to a discussion about change since he liked the colors. what she didn’t see was all her doubts were a distraction stopping her from moving forward, which is why fear is a highly ineffective strategy when we want to feel better. however, when we disrupt our hesitation and take a leap, synchronicity WILL orchestrate support for us. which is why i left my client that day with a pile of paint swatches + encouraged her to begin the conversation. :: :: our homes are meant to be maps of who we are. where we are growing. and what we love. by the end of that day, her husband was musing color options. and within the week, she had picked a starting point. inspired to transform the dining room into a photography studio, the neutral walls were soon gone. a new couch ordered. the perfect rug selected. and some color she LOVED added to dial up the conversation. :: :: as with most rooms, it became a work in progress with new ideas simmering – which is exactly how she felt, too, once her surroundings were dressed to match her expressivity. xo
First day of middle school in six grade for Jae, first day of third grade for Jeramiah, first day of first grade for Joy. I am very grateful and proud of how beautifully they are all growing up. They are definitely a handful at times but I feel as though when you give them wings and allow them to be creative they will always do amazing things in life! I love to pieces 💗😊💞#firstdayofschool #happykids #happymommy #growingupfast #givethemwings #becreative #lovethemtopieces #loveandlight #proudmommy #makelifebeautiful #newdaynewbeginning #positivevibesalways #lovemychildrensomuch
