Wabi Sabi: Diana

Wabi- Sabi is the ancient art of finding beauty in all accepts of life including imperfections.  It is based on the elements: that nothing lasts, nothing is finished and nothing is perfect.  It is about finding perfection in imperfection. 
I have invited a few creative bloggers to share some of their wabi-sabi.
In Diana’s words: Our one and only big plant in the apartment. Not the most attractive, but it’s ambitious: grew really tall – so tall, in fact, that we had to support it with a curtain-rod.

Instead of using pots we recycled old tea cans and used them for our little plants. And those little watering "fish" were originally soy pockets for sushi takeaway.

Our ceiling – secession style chandelier wall decoration, minus the chandelier, cause we don’t have one. But you can kind of picture it – it must look amazing!

Light shaft – our view from the bathroom and the toilet window. Most people cover it with a curtain, but we embrace it, and even decorate it with some bits and bobs.

Diana is the lady behind exPress-o blog. 
I love how these photos share the notion that there is no such thing as a way things 'should be' and embracing the aspects of life that are in a constant state of transition.

I am the wabi sabi postings. I had never heard of this. The posts are interesting, and help define it even more.

What a great idea for a post! And I couldn't agree more. It's why I love artists sketchbooks more than finnished art. Hope you are having a great week. X.

Wabi-Sabi! I think large bits of my life can be described using this term. :-)

I love the watering fish! Also, when I was a child, we had a plant like your big one there. It became a literal indoor tree. What species is that? I would love to get one for myself.

I love this! Why not embrace our "imperfections." Great post!

I bought a little ficus tree from Wal-mart almost a decade ago. It was in a tiny little 6 inch pot and stood just as high. But it is now big and bushy and at least 3 feet tall. I hadn't really thought about how much it had grown over the years until I saw your plant. **sniff** My wittle baby tree is all 'growed up' now! - G
