Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Simply White

I'm painting everything white. Well, almost everything. Benjamin Moore dove white OC-17.(It's the shade of white most recommended by great architects.) Once upon a time I hated white walls. That's when I lived in apartments or houses that were painted with cheap contractor's sprayed-on-as-thin-as-you-can-get-it...flat, dull white. That's not really white. White is creamy, elegant, simple, rich, and shadow-playing. It's clean and lovely. Nature paints with white...






And so do I. 
(I'll post the pictures when the remodel's done.)

I am eager to see how it looks when you are done. After reading about the new saturated colors that do not depend on a bit of black to make opaque, I am willing to consider white walls again.
