    Thanks for sharing, Noel! Such beautiful words/music and such beautiful images too! Oh my… we must have watched Sound of Music a million times when my girls were growing up…one of their very favorites…so those lyrics bring back such fond memories.

      Yes! I recall Sound of Music being one of those Sunday night movies when I was a kid, and I was always anxious to rush home from Sunday night church to watch it. I sang My Favorite Things in at least one solo contest so it brings back a flood of good memories too. 🙂

      I am crazy about their work because it feels so undone and understated! Thanks for reading.

    Another example of hardly anything hanging on the walls, & I love that peacefulness. I keep leaning in that direction in our new home & this continues to motivate me. Who’d have thought mostly bare walls is so appealing?! We do have shiplap in living/dining area/kitchen/foyer …so that does add interest on its own. Your posts… always so inspiring in more ways than one!!

      So happy to hear that – and I am not surprised you are loving the peacefulness of a spare nest – when you have a colorful imagination, it provides plenty of interest! 🙂
