Ethos...

ethos [ee-thos, ee-thohs, eth-os, -ohs]
— n
the distinctive character, spirit, and attitudes of a people,culture, era, etc:

     We all have that something that defines us. That certain something that can be narrowed down to one or two words. The essence of who we are. Inevitably, we reflect that in our homes, work, what we buy, drive, and cook. Who are you...really? The perfectionist, the narcissist, the giver, the martyr, the enforcer, the mediator, the empathizer, the thinker...or a combination of a few? All of this reflects back to your home, your enclave, your safe little harbor from the world. My ethos I think, because I'm self analyzing here, reflects in my love of things not so very perfect. I'm an underdog kind of girl. Things that need a little help are immediately special to me. The tattered corner of a quilt, the chipping paint of a chair, the dog chewed coffee table that I perch my feet on daily.

Love the chippy paint of this elegantly tattered chair...

Worn velvet...

Faded pieces...



                                                                       Forgotten treasures...



Tired linens...

Rescued puppies...I have three!
