Small Spaces Made Pretty

It's a joy to make things pretty,

even if it's just for you,

or for only two people...

A fresh cloth on the table...

A fresh rose from the garden, or even a pretty silk one...

A pretty china cup...

It just feels good.

One little space at a time,

made pretty.

A Country Porch View

To sit on a southern porch

in the springtime,

and look out across the fields

is pure bliss.

It is time to paint the rocking chairs,

and the old porch planks,

and scrub and clean...

wash linens,

and hang them on the line.

Spring is such a beautiful new beginning...

A Kiss of Spring

We spent a long cold winter

in the northland,

and it is so good to be back in the deep south

where everything is kissed by spring.

Springtime blessings
