I saw this quote on Ali Edwards' blog the other day and was so inspired. I wanted to make it into an altered canvas to put up in my room.
This is the "Lifetime of Inspiration" set from Unity Stamp Co.
I also used the gift tissue paper (birds) from a gift my mom got for Christmas from JJill. Isn't it the most awesome paper???
To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury; and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.
William Ellery Channing
