A gift to yourself, your beloved, your blessings. Give love. Give smiles and light up in the grace of nature’s universal light. Unending colours, textures, shapes, senses. All connected…all the same. All wanting to be loved and to love. My Shop at Dove Cottage celebrates these truths, graces, and sweetnesses. Hop about life, spreading a pocket full of light-filled seeds. ~Love, the Doves at Amor Milagre.
Start with an idea, let it grow and change with you. Smile at your beautiful recycling of ancient dust, and marvel at how gloriously inspiring everything can become again and again. Nothing is ever lost or broken. Everything constantly changes. Direct it into the light and shape it into happiness.
What is around you shapes you. Kiss your words before letting them travel. Hug your ideas before introducing them outwardly. Believe in your soul for it is purely you and that is beyond words…just right for anything you wish or hope. This is a funny plane to rest on. What would you like to do here?
Create a sacred place within, and if you can, in your home. Keep it with you always. Create a bubble of peace around you whenever you need it. This is especially necessary for empaths, highly sensitive people, and synesthetes. (More about all of the topics in this post are in my upcoming book.)
Keep a letter of love. Cherish a painted picture. Flutter through a box of saved memories. Unpack and frame them, bring them into the light, to see and inspire you. Very soon I’ll be releasing some simple and unique ways to frame artwork. Stay connected for more…(Message us for any custom artwork or design projects you may like.)
All of my work is connected. A painting is on your wall and in my book, and soon on educational tools for minds of all ages to explore and learn about. There are so many things to share with you. More in our shop every day. Many of my books will be releasing soon in the hopes of creating a positive wave.
My custom name artwork collections provide fun gifts for the holidays and every day. Stationery is coming soon! Isn’t is nice to have your very own name on something special just for you? I remember never seeing my name at gift shops when young. We love doing custom orders, so children of all ages get a surprise tailored just for them! It’s very special for us to be a part of spreading joy and wonder, making things to last and be kept dear. One such kind of stationery card will be in our shop soon. It is specifically designed for re-use in a fun, new way.
If you can, write out little messages on your holiday cards this season. “Little” things that are hand-done with love are very much appreciated by the recipient. Just like a sculpture or a rock found on a walk, you can feel the energy put into something. Food cooked with love, a card written with humble admiration, or a handmade gift will delight and be cherished over a lifetime or infinite lifetimes like a large mossy rock, played on and shared by children of various centuries.
Teaching children their ABC’s and 1,2,3’s on a walk through a wandering song is memorable and fun! Write out your name with a stick in the mud or sand. Line up some acorns to count and divide them. So many memory triggers can be beautifully designed using nature’s fractals and senses. Breathe as you go!
~Peace and tranquility from Amor Milagre’s Shop at Dove Cottage.
Music of the Moment: El Condor pasa, Rainforest Recital with the Paganini Duo (Georg Mertens) This song completely satisfies my soul with her sweet, romantic, balanced, calming voice.
