borrowing color

We come into this world with nothing and we leave with nothing. We are but sojourners and borrowers all of our days. By God’s good grace, He has given us nature from which we borrow many good things all our days. Soli Deo gloria!

Natural dyeing, cultivating creativity, practicing herbalism, growing plants from seed, cooking nourishing foods, showing respect to our earthly bodies, appreciating warm drinks, releasing the pressure to keep up… all these are gifts from our Creator as we strive to live excellently in this world. I am grateful for all that I can borrow from nature to do these things. Welcome, friend.

About Me

Hi. I’m Alex. Let me tell you a bit about me.

I’m Alex.

This page is for the woman who craves the slower paced things. Who thinks that something made from scratch is superior to instant gratification. Who wants to steward and protect her family and while getting lost in the woods. And if she isn’t quite there yet, she wants to be. And she’s committed to the growth and the process. I’m so glad you’re here!
