Keanu and I worked on creating a small area where we can retreat from our long busy days. Most of the space is created w/ old salvaged wood. We added a few new element. The space is coming together…take a look below.
We started by making this lovely bench w/ salvaged wood (left over from when we repaired the front porch). We painted the bench red and positioned it by one of the largest trees in our back yard, a lovely fig tree.
We cleared the area around the tree and we still need to mulch. This lovely chime (below) creates a lovely serene sound.
Buddha. Keanu handles it with care.
Salvage wood serves as a shelf.
Diego picked this flower out…
My co-worker gave me these beautiful flowers today. The bodega candles tie into my Latina upbringing. We also have a little fountain (but it’s not in the picture). I love the soothing sound of water. There’s still elements to add but we’ve at least started to create a space to teach the children about meditation and prayer.
