taking it down a notch

bonjour tous! çva? i’m about to wrap it up and dig in for a little dessert and down time. as i was about to post, i started finding tons pics i was about to let a blog free flow fly.  but just as i was starting to get nuts,  this ‘less’ sign appeared. (i got it from pinterest, if you created it please let me know so i can credit you).

i love the duality of it since i’m into less and more. anyway it slowed me down and yes, there’s a lot of inspiration out there, but unless you take it bit by bit, some of the details inevitably get lost.

i hope you like these botanicals as much as i did for  their contrast. digital images yet so abundant.  they’re immortalized by the unerring detail of a technical artist  who also captured the extravagant simplicity only nature can create.

ahh what i wouldn’t give to  inhale their essence~

well all have a delightful night full of peace and love! sweet dreams!
