whatever makes me happy monday: designing woman

my mum is a designer.
a designer of interiors,
 and of one of society's most sacred spaces....

the home.

she manifests dreams through fabrics and pillows
encapsulates families in joyful living spaces
and like an artist
takes a blank canvas
and turns it into the spectacular


she can weave color and texture
the way a chef blends butter and cream


the result a delicious, delectable
feast for the eyes


she creates boudoirs
 that beckon. 
...sanctuaries for the soul


and
you should see what she can do 
with a loo


she is a master of her trade
and what a creative trade it is....

cuz if home is where the heart is
she has a remarkable gift of giving hearts
a lovely place to live.

This is such a beautiful tribute. I especially love the last line, "... if home is where the heart is she has a remarkable gift of giving hearts a lovely place to live." The photos, too, are gorgeous!!!!
