Whatsoever Things Are Lovely...
looking for life's beauty through faith, family, art, and nature.
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!

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.)
