Sweet Somethings

Those of us who enjoy decorating know the impact and satisfaction in creating vignettes, or switching up pictures  or chairs or lamps...you know what I mean...

or cushions...
Lately I have enjoyed adding a bit more greenery around my home..

The landscape outdoors can feel bleak and lack lustre so plants indoors help to add a garden feel...

A few weeks ago I picked up this magazine called English Homes. Every page is filled with dreamy and idyllic photographs...I can almost pretend I too am planning a trip to England like Brenda...                                                                  

my painted hutch lends a wee English ambiance :)

Speaking of dreaming a little, I've been watching the last (sniffle) season of Downton...I ordered the DVD so we could watch at our leisure. It's such a different world and also such a similar world is it not? People are people no matter when or where they live..  Humans all have idiosyncrasies it seems..

I have also been making granola a lot this winter. It's such a yummy snack or breakfast...

I don't know about you but I certainly love a clean window...they get dirty quickly out here in the country,  making me appreciate when they are clean!

Well I wrap up my week remembering how blessed I am. Yesterday I watched a young girl walking home from school. She had two crippled feet and walking was an awkward hobble. 
I knew I was supposed to see her...
Sometimes I get wrapped up in my own worries or concerns about my children or family when suddenly I am jolted into the realization of my gifts of health, strength and all sorts of providential blessings...
With this as my focus I wish you a blessed weekend.

                                                      Thanks for stopping by. ~ Lucy~

  3. From the little white shelf to the sweet white suitcase, I enjoyed my "visit"...And yes, we DO have much for which to be thankful!

  4. Good Morning Lucy,
    I wanted to stop by and welcome you to Thoughts of Home On Thursday.
    I am pleased to meet you and I am so inspired by your kind and thoughtful words as well as your pretty home.
    I hope you will join us again!

  5. I enjoyed my little visit at your place this morning, Lucy...sharing your love of home and beauty...

  6. Yes, I do believe those are little reminders to feel blessed.

    Dreaming of England is a favorite pastime of mine as well :)

    I hope you have a lovely Sunday tomorrow, Lucy.


  7. Lucy, this is such a sweet post and I can relate to so much of what you said. I love moving things around and tweaking - I call it playing house. I worry unnecessarily about things sometimes and then stop and count my blessings. You really do have to wonder about the times when you see something like the little girl walking home. They are messages, aren't they? I catch those things sometimes too.

    Thank you for linking this with Thoughts of Home on Thursday. ♥

  8. Good morning Lucy!
    All is so lovely and homey around your home & hearth. That window view is perfect and I agree..I love it when the window is fresh and clean again. I have enjoyed Downton Abbey too but must admit I haven't seen all the seasons as of yet. Ive seen what was on Netflix so far. That granola looks yummy...I love it on my yogurt in the morning. Is that last photo one of your rooms? Its gorgeous too!
    Yes I believe that He orders every one of our steps for His purposes...such an intimate God of detail. He is so beautiful...beyond description.
    Love and hugs to you Lucy...the rain and warmer temps are melting the snow so nicely here! Yeah! :)

    All my heart,
    Deborah xoxo

  9. Happy Easter to you, dear Lucy. The white roses are so pretty.

    love, ~Sheri


thank you and blessings for words from your heart...
