Good morning, I mean afternoon!

Hello Sunshine!
You look marvelous and I’m so glad that you are joining me.

The stylish Marsha Harris from Splenderosa  is hostessing a fabulous & growing group of women from all around the world to join in a monthly conversation.
via inside the loop
Based on a quote, a poem, or maybe a casual saying, the conversation will be different every first Tuesday of the month!
I love visiting with all the warm & friendly & super smart bloggers who received invitations and are here today!
Vicki Archer from French Essence  and
have chosen a wonderful message…
Letter Holder & Stationary from Iomoi
The invitation arrived with one of my favorite sayings first penned by Gustave Flaubert, the French writer best known for his novel Madame Bovary, 
"Le bon Dieu est dans le detail".
Translation…
Whatever we do, should be done thoroughly and to the very best of our abilities. The details are what make all the difference... 

In her book, A Passion for Detail, Charlotte Moss notes...

“You look at the details and a world unfolds.”  Charlotte Moss


And I love this quote from Margaret Russell, editor of Architectural Digest.

“Perhaps that’s the secret recipe for effortless elegance:  It’s a carefree sense of confidence, lightheartedness, a lack of pretension, and a mindful appreciation for comfort and care.”     Margaret Russell

Me, I personally believe that each day you create yourself anew through choice.
My post, Repose of the Soul, is one I’m most proud of and reminds me & many of my blogger friends that…
By paying attention to the details, your authentic gestures, you give expression to the most personal of all the arts: making your own imprint on life.

Before I go, I would be remiss if I did not thank my beautiful friend Coty Farquhar for extending this lovely invitation all the way across the pond.

My favorite part of this is the concept of authentic gestures. Authentic can be difficult, one has to pay attention, but worth it.

Hi, I'm Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Now this sounds like the very best invitation you can receive! What a fabulous group of women.

Yesterday I went to Sweet Salvage to see my friend Brooke and was absolutely enchanted to meet your dear, dear mother. Such grace and beauty.

After perusing several of your posts it appears that the apple did not fall far from the tree.

Be blessed!

Lisa said...

Laura,
You are a dear. My mother had the greatest day at Sweet Salvage. It was her first visit and she could not have picked a better day to attend. She adored meeting you and Brooke Giannetti! I so wish I could have been there also, and the feeling is mutual!
