Welcome to our farmhouse…life is good!

Monday, July 11

I love old things...

an 1890's stepback cupboard,
with handed-down carnival glass,
vintage yellowware bowls,
and a crackled white casserole dish.

I love anything old, worn, and weathered.

I love old houses and barns and wish they could talk.

I love simple, old-fashioned ways.

And while modern conveniences are certainly a blessing,
it's also a blessing to slow down and enjoy the uncomplicated pleasures of each day...

the months,
the seasons,
the predictability of nature,
the sweetness of daily life.

Wishing you a day to slow down and enjoy the simple pleasures.


  1. I love all those things too.

  2. I so agree!

    And as I sit in an office with no A/C today, my day is very slow. : )

    Not quite what you had in mind, huh?

  3. Oh me too!!! I love old things too and have a similar yellowware bowl that makes me happy every time I use it.

  4. After a rotton morning of errands and trying to do too many things at once, I needed this. Thank you.OH...the group of letters below for my word verification are MANTRA...think I am being told something, here.


Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!
