"beauty is its own excuse for being"










A rather brilliant blog friend* of mine left this comment on one of my posts once and I've been saving it in my back pocket ever since. After coming across these beautiful images I thought it was the perfect time to pull it out, shine it up, and share. Sort of speaks for itself, doesn't it. Yes, beauty is its own excuse for being.

EB is terribly smart and a fab writer. I hear she can take a pretty picture.

Wow so many goodies here... the architecture, the chairs, the floors. Yes, please.

And yes, Erin makes magic out of words!

I wish I could take credit for those words, but they belong to Ralph Waldo Emerson.

However, they do fit this home perfectly!

I'm in love. More please.

And for my next act I'll rant about how I want something I can't have.

But for now, sigh, I'm in love.

GORGEOUS!
