Using All Of Your Resources

It's early, and the light is bad. But I am putting perfectionism behind me for awhile today, and have lit a candle for courage.
Maybe you have read a bit lately of the "hygge" concept. If not, here's a nice link to clue you in. I thought about the idea a lot this morning, and think it's a great notion for our times.

There is always so much to share, and so little time. My big idea moment of the day is often first thing in the morning when I am just waking up and starting my brain going with a nice cup of something and a browse.

I used to get energy and inspiration from magazines first thing, but the internet has augmented that these days. (For good or ill.) In a lot of ways these resources are still finding themselves and their relationship to each other, but it seems that for now decorating magazines have turned heavily to blogs for sustenance.
A while back magazines weren't faring so well.  But they have had such a resurgence that you can't keep up. I mean, there are so many now that no one can afford to! But I am limited more by common sense than money these days where that's concerned. I subscribe to no more than two publications now, and cherry pick from the rest. I spend a lot more time making my selections than ever before, and buy a mere fraction of what is offered, yet I still seem to get a ton.
We dish out for a single issue now what we used to spend for a book, so I choose more carefully. I also pass on the issues that I am finished with, and hang on to piles of all the rest. That alone presents challenges of its own. Where to keep all those magazines!
This issue is one of the very few that I chose for fall. They can all end up looking the same to me.

(The title was hard to read above, so I zoomed in.)

Notice that it is "the best of", so you may have already seen some or all of it. And not cheap.

I enjoyed the whole issue, but this article caught my eye enough to look up the artist, David Arms.

I could tell by this book room that we have a few things in common.

I always read with a magnifier, and you would be shocked at how much more detail that you pick up.

Besides the whole aesthetic of the family rooms, one of the things I liked best was the magazines stowed behind the couch!

And one click on the David Arms website was all I needed to see that I was going to love a lot more. Just look at his adorable looking workshop in Tennessee! His FB page is also a treat. (His "about" page reads like this..."David Arms was born on a cloudy October day in 1956 in the rolling hills of East Tennessee.")

He loves what we love. A lot of bird themes, transferware, and wonderful quotes.

There is original artwork for sale, but I won't be investing in any yet. Fortunately there are greeting cards and other things for sale that you can have for a lot less! But just looking over the website will feed your soul.

The website feels similar to one of you...
