A Cute Quote

The brilliant Anna Spiro of Absolutely Beautiful Things recently shared these photos of one of her (and my!) favorite quotes in a pretty white frame. “Arrange whatever pieces come your way” — Virginia Woolf.  Isn’t the script just lovely?  It reminds me of how much I miss my Quote of the Day feautre—I think I’ll have to remedy that tomorrow morning!  Which famous quote would you frame in your home?  I think I may need to frame Oscar Wilde’s quip “With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?” because it reminds me to be thankful.

    Lovely! I need to make a couple frames quotes for myself! I love that script! Do you know where we might be able to purchase the font? Or is it hand written?

    Twoellie has my favorite quote on her blog today (have you met her…she is adorable).

    “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist when we grow up.” Pablo Picasso

    I had this framed in my Art Room…now it is in my son’s room.

    What a lovely idea! Mine would be “Love is a place” by e.e.cummings-in fact, I’m having a print of it made for my mama for Christmas!

    I LOVE that quote. Finding things come at you much more often than you come at them, it is such a great approach to life.

    I would so put …

    “A young woman has young claws, well sharpened. If she has character, that is. And if she hasn’t so much the worse for you.”
    -Henri Matisse

    in a womens small powder room for entertaining. So every time over-served guests read it while reapplying their lipstick they would emerge a little more clever and confident. (All the more better for cocktail conversation, haha)

    Lovely, too lovely!
    All details on that pictures are dreamy – the big frame, all the whiteness against the handwritten black, the eccletic table, the books promissing havens inside, the promissed scent of candles…
    What a wonderful way to kick the day, isn’t it?!

    so many Quotes so little time- I have missed the daily quote and was going to nudge- but alas no need.

    I find quotes speak to you in different ways at different times depending on your state of being.

    3 current favs:

    To often .. we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought. JFK

    We are what we repeatedly do Excelence, therefor, is not an act but a habit. einstein

    On matters of style swim with the current on matters of principle stand like a rock.

    I’d do either:
    “Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.” – Julia Child
    “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” -Coco Chanel

    Also – your quote of the day feature is one of my favorites!

    “Allowing yourself to be happy is one of the greatest joys of the world” – my dad.

    He wrote this to me on inside flap of the “Vera Wang on Weddings” coffee table book. One of my absolute greatest treasures now that he has passed away. I’ve been meaning to get the letter in calligraphy and framed – thanks for reminding me!

    Jenny — You are the FIRST person to point this out! Too funny…I paused when I first saw it thinking “is there really an ‘e’ at the end,” but didn’t bother to check! I corrected it in my post… : )
