Glory Moments...and Tricia Rose of Rough Linen
For me, there are two types of inspiring moments. I call them glory moments. One is the 'Aha' moment, when I finally get something right and can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Lately I have had a few 'Aha' moments with the blogging course I am taking. So nice to feel that again.
The second glory moment is the 'Ooh' one, when you look at something and say 'Ooh, I love that'. I recently had a double hitter, the 'Ooh' and 'Aha' moment at the same time and I owe that to Tricia Rose of Rough Linen. When I saw this picture, it was unequivocally an 'Ooh and Aha' moment for me.
It finally clicked, I have been thinking on Tahilla Farm, our new home away from home in the wilds of New England. At the moment..it is a blank canvas, literally. Not a single item stands within any four walls. I have found my first purchase...Tricia's duvet cover for New England and the 'summer cover' for steamy nights back at Chateau Mango in Saigon.
I can see it in the folds of the fabric, it is textural and organic, just the way I like it. The details and colours are simple, fresh and lovely, as they should be.
Best of all, is the woman behind the craft, Tricia Rose.
Her story is an inspiring one...she had an idea and she made it happen.
The video tells the story...
Isn't this sensational? She has style..and she knows what she likes. A woman to love!
Tricia reminds me of one of the many reasons I fell in love with Tahilla Farm. I hope to one day make it a creative retreat, one to be shared with family and friends and with with my blogging friends. That's another story, the idea is there, the words are coming...in the meantime, I have Tricia to remind me that anything is possible in life, just follow your dream.
Tricia Rose...an inspiring woman..unequivocally!
You can find Tricia Rose and Rough Linen here and while you are there be sure to check out the Rough Linen Community here. It is a fabulous concept! One last parting note from Tricia...a video on how to stuff a duvet. I think of all the tutorials I have given my own children, often to blank stares when it comes time to do it themselves. I am emailing this video to them..brilliant!
I would like to fill Collage of Life pages with men and women who create--hoping they will inspire you as well. For more on women and their craft, click here. If you have an artist that you think would inspire us all, please feel free to right to me... firstname.lastname@example.org I am always looking for glory moments!
On another note...
For those of you who are waiting on my Myanmar photos, they are still coming. My blog course has me off in all sorts of directions. I want to share travel photos without overwhelming you with a run on of photos. I had another 'Aha' moment recently...it is coming with 'A Symphony over Inle Lake'..soon.
Sending you warm wishes from Chateau Mango in Saigon for a wonderful weekend!
