Welcome! I’m Denise—a gentle fae artist living with my beloved husband and son in the wilds of the most Northern part of Washington.
hello dear souls...I have received such a surprising and loving outpouring of emails & messages expressing concern for my absence online. i am feeling so very humbled to my core. i just wanted to peek in to say all is well. it is so so good. me and my boys are in a transition that is requiring me to be a fully present mama. it's also requiring me to pour into self care of my mind, body and spirit. part of that is less time on screens, more reading of books, being outdoors, joining a gym, curling up to safe & cozy and living a quieter life. i will be back when my reserves are there, i promise! grateful that my wee family is lifted up by such gorgeous souls...even those i don't know. missing many of you, too. ✨
i remember @carrieannemoss sitting on this bench and how the light began to gently lay on her face and the calm emulating from her soul...

It's about noticing the sky and listening to the heart beat of our home. Being in the kitchen bare-foot—yep, bare-foot, because I need to feel the ground. There is no right way for it to look. It's just love and care and devotion to seeing the beauty in our everyday lives."

this. this is rare and precious and i am savoring.
I do like forbidden things. ☺️ Especially when I have a pinched nerve in my neck and shoulder and this was all I could muster for lunch. #yummity
he has a special place in his heart for helium balloons.
tried to capture the mystical fog in our village this morning but she's being mysterious.
there are times when the morning light that greets him hurts his body, so he finds a dark place to eat his breakfast. he teaches me that dark can be just as safe as light.
i told my husband I needed to go to a cafe just to read. simply read. i always feel like i need to fill my time away with something productive: errands, groceries, work, etc...but it feels so good to allow time for pleasure alone. and the stunning ruby-haired barista that made me this lavender latte was wrapped in a long wool poncho that she slept in last night and added a belt so she could stay in it all day. this made my day! amazing the gifts you receive when you ask for what you need. and yes that is a hole in my leggings and paint on my sleeve. ah well. ☺️
it would be lovely to be him for a day. #elviskitty
put them on before heading out the door. #faehome
i am ever evolving yet such a creature of comfort. #dichotomy
my heart cup runneth over. i was sent this beautiful drawing of me and cedar and our third eyes by this lovely soulful artist @alquimiaoracle. it came to me at the most right time for my heart. goosebumps. when my words and images move people, it both surprises and humbles me and my heart receives so much more gift when something like this is inspired.
perhaps if we view even the most mundane tasks as ritual, it is that much more romantic. #goodmorning #annapurnaliving
