I only got four hours of broken-up sleep last night. I’ve never been good at napping. I’m just left in this exhausted awake state of being.


Happy/Blessed Beltane, everyone!

Playing Catch-Up

I am pretty sure the last two weeks are catching up because I am beyond exhausted today. Trying to get caught up with the online world.

I Redesigned, Again

I redesigned OSN. It looks best at higher screen resolutions. That’s where you get all of the fancy effects. It’s fine on mobile but absolutely shines on a computer. Hopefully, everything works across the board. I tried to make the homepage an actual one, harkening back to the olden days of blogging.

Beautiful! I love the blurry green effect on the fourth picture. The colours are really vibrant and well, kind of soothing (and I just need to find myself a pastel pink summer dress now!)

Keep up the creativity! :)

On a sidenote, and because you said you wanted to hear back from me…

(My (very mediocre) makeup collection photos are online.

Reply to Marie-Anne

Thank you and YAY for the makeup collection! Going to go over and look at your post now!


Very nice. I like the black background.

Thank you! It’s really in how I processed it because our table is just regular… medium brown wood and I shot these all in the kitchen lol.

Well, as per usual, your photos are exquisite.

Awww thank you so much!

Ooo… pretty!!!

Yay thank you!

Ranunculus are my FAVORITE. I need to find out if I can grow them here in New England. These are beautiful!

It’s the first time I’ve bought them and they are just so lovely! I can’t wait until I can buy some peonies as those look sooo fluffy.

I’m sure you can grow them in New England, generally midwest-east are better gardening climates rather than say, Arizona lol.

Gorgeous pictures Sarah!! I just love love the first one

Thank you! It actually was harder than I thought to shoot them because well… 1. the kitchen table wasn’t cleaned off lol and 2. the light was VERY VERY direct and bright but I think I lucked out overall with some decent photos.

Gorgeous! Gorgeous!! So glad you linked up to WW!

Sweet! Thank you so much Alicia!

Oh, I love ranunculus! And that last photo of just the vase and water is exquisite in its unexpected simplicity. Thanks for sharing your pictures!

Reply to Lauren @ Hobo Mama

Thank you so much! They remind me of roses but more… fluffy lol.

Thank you Sian!

Thank you Caite!

Lovely series. The pinks and greens are wonderful.

Reply to Beth F

Thank you! I couldn’t agree more, the colors are so SPRINGY to me!

These are gorgeous! You constantly inspire me. I’d love to grow these beautiful flowers, but as bad as my record is with the regular flowers, I’m not convinced that I’d have any success. So I’ll just enjoy your gorgeous photos!

Aww thank you! I would love to grow these, peonies, and roses, but I just… don’t know how to landscape lol.

These ranunculus’ are just downright ridiculously beautiful! I’m so excited that spring is here. I’m prepared to be inundated with flower photos on your blog. I mean that in the best way possible. I looooove your flower photos. :)

LOL thank you!!! I’m hoping to go to the Botanic Garden soon (we need to renew our membership this month anyway!), to get some new bloom shots!


Those are beautiful!

Reply to Ashlee

Thank you so much Ashlee!


Oh Sarah, these are so gorgeous! The flowers are my absolute favs and your photos are simply stunning.

Finally back in France in a house with an internet connection.

Hope you are well!
