Mesmerizing Monday

While out gardening in my yard this weekend,
this gorgeous beauty opened for me... when the winds picked up, I picked it and brought it inside, and have been mesmerized with it's scent since...

Like the scent of the magnolia, I find these "wood turned" pieces by Greg Gallegos at Natural Selection Studio  just as mesmerizing ~

Violaceous Box Elder Vessel

Kabuku XVIII

Don't you find them exquisite? They remind me of blown glass, perhaps because of the colours but also the light that resonates through them....
They are available for purchase here.

Cowhide rugs have never really been in my decor scheme, but after seeing these
by Kyle Bunting I am really intrigued! The colours and workmanship are
truly mesmerizing ( my word for the day!)


I hope your Monday is off to a mesmerizing start too, and that my magnolia's scent is wafting through to make your week heavenly ~
