Maintaining the the focus on the good things in our lives can be a challenging. There are so many distractions that can take our focus away from the good things happening in our lives and communities. Sometimes we have to pause and take a breath and enjoy the small treats of life.
Browsing my closet, is a small treat that I an indulge in easily, and always brings such warmth. Roving my hands across the soft cottons, silks and linens, each item has a particular good memories, that invoke the feelings of charm and wonder. As my eye covers each item I am reminded of my family legacy of the Parms Cleaners in Akron, Ohio and how my family helped the community to look their best daily.
Taking steps to maintain your natural fabrics can be a challenge, anyone from Ohio can tell you about the one time they put their wool sweater in the washer and ended up with a shrunken sweater that can fit a toddler. A lot of the washing rituals come with a lot of trial and error, for example silk needs to be hand washed every time. At Jcrewthrifted we focus on only having the best vintage clothing and at Frolicking Americana we are focused on giving our readers the content they need to maintain the beauty of their clothing.
Maintaining our skin is another way that you can focus on self care and taking joy everyday. My favorite skin product Thieves Hand and Body Wash I use is by Beauty by Apothecary a women led company that uses the highest quality ingredients that make the difference. Taking moments of peace in these everyday moments allows us all the opportunity to explore, ourselves and what creates hope in all of us. It gives us a chance to explore, know, and partake in our skin, clothing and life.
Sending you love, hope and charity!
