mustard + cerulean

I can live alone, if self-respect, and circumstances require me so to do. I need not sell my soul to buy bliss. I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all extraneous delights should be withheld, or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give.
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

  1. I love this quote. And theose pictures, too. The color contrast is perfect. Which you knew, as I am guessing that is the reason you posted them...

  20. I am a solitary kind of person. I could happily live alone and not speak or see people I think, for long periods. But I am so so lucky to have 3 people in my life (my husband and 2 boys) that make me feel so honored to share my tight circle of life and love with. THey make me better.

    Beautiful quote and color and texture.

  24. I love this quote. I actually just saw the most recent movie version of Jane Eyre last night and was blown away! If you haven't seen it yet, you must!

    And the mustard + cerulean combo is beautiful. Honestly, just the names of the colors go so well together.
