My Home: Sacred in the Everyday

So so good to see you!

I will be on an adventure this week

so less posting.

What I have in mind is

part business, part pleasure and…


Sometimes we need a departure from the everyday to

empty ourselves,

to breathe,

to learn,

and see our lives

with new eyes.

Ya know?

I do love the everyday though!

Just sweeping my kitchen floor can feel sacred.

My house was my studio as I snapped

images for you with the lovely

of the everyday in mind.

an inspiration board: prayers & encouraging words & vintage

prayer books and vintage rosaries bring peace

the mix makes me happy

‘they have counted all my bones’ cuts me to the soul

a design magazine and the scent of rosemary? mmm mmmm good.

i wear them

black leather

aging pages are beautiful….

anxiety often finds me at night…i cling to such thoughts…

whilst Sandy clings to my desk lamp.

(why oh why would i identify with this squirrel? shrink away!)

words are my life.

Thanks for listening and sharing

a few simple things I

find so lovely.

Any secrets for finding lovely in your daily life?

Peace to you right where you are.

    I love your squirrel!! That's so funny that you put that image in there too, amongst the others.

    I like to sit in my garden in the warmer weather. We have a swing seat, and I sit with a cup of tea and listen the birds and pray and think.

    And then I head back into the melee!!

    The more I come here, the more I fall in love with you, my friend. You're a really beautiful person.

    Have a great day!
