Hi.

Thank you for visiting JoanMarie | Company!

Contemplating White....

Many years ago I discovered a true love of white.  The pure color in all of its various shades and hues was fascinating and a safe color to design with.  It became a staple for me in wall color, bath towels, bedding, and even T-shirts and tennis shoes.  Even the flowers I love (peonies) are just stunning in white...

Beyond the obvious is the strong presence it commands and yet the welcoming familiarity and comfort it provides.  White, as a color, is so broad in value from the creamy yellow shades to the refreshing tones with hints of green, to the serene light grey/blue ocean tones.  It is a color that draws out my creativity and forces me to think without boundaries or constraints.  White clears my head and allows my senses to relax and pause.....

So many wonderfully exciting things are taking shape with the blog and Blue Cupboard that I need to step back and look at my surroundings that are filled with a loving family, amazing friends, and huge dreams.  How truly grateful I am....for every bit.  Grateful for the new blog friends I have made and the powerful support from family and friends...so very grateful.  The sharing of suggestions, the kind words of encouragement, the tips, and constructive criticism... it all makes for a beautiful journey.....

As each new day arrives and I look at my to-do list, I have slowly taught myself to take it all in and be grateful to be so busy both in mind and spirit.  To have another day to create and dream, to meet new people, and to move forward in a way that feels right...just like the color white....

Hoping you are having a wonderful weekend and that you too have your moment of "white"......
