The Tuesday Diptych Project: Week One

The Tuesday Diptych Project is a collaboration between two Canadian mothers, connected by coincidence & inspired by the everyday. Each Tuesday, Johanna from Birds on a Wire and I shall each capture a moment from our day, independent of each other, which we will then pair up and share on our respective blogs. We’re very excited to see the similarities and differences that this project will bring to light.

Johanna (left): For me, this picture reminds me of calm quiet moments in my home. I cherish stillness. It helps my mind to ease itself, it allows me the space that I need to think and to create. In this picture you can see in the background the door to my studio illuminated by the sun. The sun casts a bright sunny spot on the floor in the hallway. In the foreground, an antique chair from my mother in law, a painting we picked up when thrifting and our big blue t.v. hutch that we got 2nd hand that hides all of our electronics. This is my home, where I feel safe and protected.

Desiree (right): My favourite part about living in a house is the fact that we have such a gorgeous little property. For years we’ve been “second floor living without a yard” and the fact that I can now look outside to see the pretty blue porch, the gorgeous red sumac and all sorts of greenery thrills me beyond measure. Even now, in the depths of winter, I find beauty in the solitary branches – my sleeping garden. It’s a comforting & constant reminder that the brilliance of Spring is just barely in the distance.

Awe, I'm totally flattered -- and yes! I was definitely inspired by 3191 -- their images are just breathtaking.
And don't worry about feeling like you don't have a life. I too get REALLY overly excited about blog goings-on ^_^ My little online family -- oh how I love you guys!

Awe, thanks Maggie! Now you're just making me blush!
How're the troops feeling? I hope the sickness has gone -- it's finally left our home, thankfully!

I think this is a beautiful thing - to share a moment in life from two views in a diptych display.
And now I need to educate myself on this 3191 reference, too.

I love these two posts, you both have such a beautiful and calming writing style. What a love most about these two entries, although they are different, it just proves it true... usually life's best things start at home <3
