Wabi Sabi: Susan

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.

Sheets + pillowcases in the wash. 
Duvets + pillows waiting to be clothed + beds waiting to be made. 


Finding peace + clarity in washing dishes by hand (we don't have a dishwasher).

Children bathing. 

Laundry that is never finished, always in transition.

Susan is the lady behind the Blog: Freshly Picked and Shop.
I love how these photos display so many characteristic of a wabi sabi home- with asymmetry, simplicity, modesty and intimacy.

I love this post. Oh the never ending laundry. I'm really liking this series. It's very fun and the idea of nothing is perfect really takes the pressure off no?
