Life was happening when the weather was warm,and I never took the time to post some pics of my fav place….just outside our door is our Courtyard..we live in a one story townhouse….connected to others..but our entrance is thru this wonderful,space,this was our second spring and summer here,so I’m going to find even more ways to make it inviting.But sitting here with coffee in the morning or wine at night,is,a little heaven on earth…..hope you enjoy,as I try to bring a little England to my surroundings!
Happy New Year!
It’s been awhile since I posted.A lot,of life has happened,but a new year is a perfect time to renew my love of hearth and home.
I love color and need it in our home to keep hubbys depression at bay,he is also disabled,and over all of the many years,I find it to be cheerful and helpful,as life can be very challenging. I love the English Country look..not sure if I’m achieving it..lol but I like to try.
Blessings to all,of you..God Bless.
My favorite color is red!I use all thru my home,all year round.So I have fun at Christmas and bring all my fav things out.I use a lot of color and lights and happy things,to keep our home warm and festive.Hubby is disabled and works at home so I’m home a lot and want to keep every room cheerful.The grandkids are here a lot and we bake and cook soup,and have music playing..life can be very hard..but home is our sweet and loving place.I pray you all have a place like that you call home too.❤️
I started out many yrs ago loving Country Decor….now I love,French country,English country….and Colonial…..I love it all!
This is part of or small living area.❤️
I was barley 19 yrs old when I was married and we had our first home,BTW,I’m 60 now.Seems like yesterday when we moved into a beautiful new modest ranch house that my fatherinlaw built for us.
I loved to decorate right away!..And even with a limited amount of money,and two little girls,I made a beautiful house into a cozy beautiful home.
But,I soon was to be tested as to what was really important in my life,after five yrs of marriage,hubby was in a terrible accident at his place of work and was paralyzed from the neck down.Limited space here does not allow me to share the past 36 yrs….but what I have found out,was that my focus,remained on what was the real love of my life,and decorating,was way down on the list….but it was there!
We have been blessed beyond measure with friends and family and always a home to decorate!….and decorate I have done..it has been a wonderful source of joy and it has allowed me not to loose myself and my gifts in the midst of tragedy.
Our girls are now grown and we have 3 adorable granddaughters.
I have shown them the love of creating a loving and beautiful space,no matter what your resources may be….and they have beau full homes.
We now live in a condo/ home community….only have been here a few months..no more outside work for me!
It’s smaller,but cozy,and I’m having fun once again finding ways to put my stamp on it! The kids are here several times a week..I want them to be happy when they walked in!Its important to me to give Bill a happy and blessed place to be as he is working from home,and battles depression.
I’ll share pics of home,and my lovely courtyard….remember,we haven’t been here too long,it’s still evolving!
How kind of you ,who have read this short synopsis of my journey.
Be blessed In yourjourney….God Bless
