Christmas decorating

December 7, 2013

Christmas decorating in the works here.
My music is on, candles are lit and it's feels
so warm and cozy inside, while poor hubby is 
outside trimming the lamp posts and fencing 
with pine roping and lights.
Maybe I'll surprise him with a nice hot cup of tea. 

I got a really late start this year so I'm trying
to keep it simple.
Sharing a few photos in my dinning room.
Later today I will work on our tree in the living room
and hopefully tomorrow I'll take a walk in the woods
to collect lots of fresh greens and berries.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Antique Hardware

November 29, 2013

I wanted share with you this awesome
 18th &19th Century Hardware shop 
 located in West Chester, Pa.
Mr. Coldren and his family live in my neck of the woods.

So much to look at!!!!
I could have spent hours in one corner!
When I go back I'll be sure to have my phone charged
so I can share pictures of his antique furniture and 
even more hardware!

Below is a link to his shop.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 27, 2013

For Flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wishing you all a most enjoyable
Thanksgiving celebration!
