Simplify


I think the picture says it all. My favourite figurines thrifted from an op shop. I love the simple lines of the pieces and the fact that there are no frills to the pieces. A mother and daughter - as if in prayer, just moving quietly through life cherishing what's important and losing that which is peripheral and non-essential. I've always wanted a 'Simplify' sign. Whilst sifting through my stockpile of wood, I happened upon an arm-length piece that had a square end so I cut it up into 8 square blocks and decoupaged the letters on after painting 1 face and oiling the others.

  1. The blocks look great Lilian and I love the figurines too!

    A gentle reminder of how to live life...
