Soulful Connections

Soulful Connections… we all have them…they’re those special little (sometimes big) treasures we instantly fall in love with and just as instantly know they have to be a part of our lives.  They’re special jewels we either wear on our bodies or put out in our personal spaces.  They’re those things that make us smile when we look at them or make us walk just a little taller when we wear them.  You know what I’m talking about right??!!!  Like when you’re out antiquing (one of my absolute favorite pastimes!!!) and happen across that locked glass case showcasing that special, oh so beautiful piece of jewelry that you feel so connected with it almost makes you cry?!!!  This treasure is literally what I call a soulful connection!  Its something you will always love as much as you did when you first saw it.  Its something you truly felt a connection with…it spoke to you and you to it.  Do I sound crazy yet??!!  I don’t want to scare you away.  I do want you to realize that as easy as it is to have these connections with personal wares, its should be something you want to experience with your personal space treasures as well.  You can and should get in touch enough with yourself to be connected with those special details you put in your personal spaces….your bedroom, family room, even kitchen and bath.  For me, this is my vintage stone altar-piece beside my bed that holds an antique Buddha head and shells lovingly gathered on my Puerto Rico trips.  And its my collections of mini glass domes holding a found hummingbird nest, vintage shell and antique doll hands. And its my antique pine furniture collection I started over 25 years ago, each piece with me thru raising my 4 kids…they stories these pieces could tell!  Ha!!!  Point is these things have such meaning and as a result my personal space has the energy that reflects that. Our homes matter and everything we choose to put in them should matter just as much.
