Surrounded by Water

“For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), it's always our self we find in the sea.” ― E.E. Cummings

When I used to help people decorate their homes I found art work to be the most challenging.  Art is so personal and I never really felt comfortable picking it out for others.  I know what I like to see on my walls, but making that choice for others was often a daunting task!  Water makes me happy , well actually everyone here under the cottage and vine roof is pretty happy around water.  So it's no secret that we gravitate toward images of water.  You don't have to live at the beach or lake to enjoy seeing water.  Actually, not living near water is even more reason for me to want the reminder hanging around our home.  Those little reminders of family vacations near oceans, lakes, rivers, and pools are what make me happy and I love seeing them when I look around our home.  What makes you happy?
