Dresser Detail

I love the light in this room. At certain times of day it is just breathtaking. Of course it changes throughout the year . . . but there is always a time of day when it's just magical!

If you look closely you'll notice that the only photographs in here are of hubby & me. There are no photos of children, ancestors or even pets. It gives me the creeps to have others' eyes in my bedroom. Or bathroom. There is an Audubon reproduction hanging over the bed. . . but no photos of anyone other than hubby and me!

PS - I think this lovely bust looks SO much better wearing my straw hat, instead of the black cowboy hat. Don't you?


I thought I'd post a photo of our bedroom. I know I haven't posted many of them & don't know why not, other than the fact that life has been wonderfully busy. Anyway - here is a pic of my side of the bed. I recently walked in there & since the lighting was so wonderful, had to grab the camera & take a quick shot.

Notice there are books, magazines & articles in the basket. What you don't see are even more books stacked on the floor near my side of the bed! That's how I fall asleep: reading non-fiction. I'm currently reading Chemistry Of Essential Oils Made Simple: God's Love Manifest in Molecules which has a total of 876 pages! I'm not certain it's simple enough for me to understand. . . am guessing I'll have to read it more than once . . . but I am really, really enjoying it.
That's it for now. It's time to go make some homemade lasagna for my daughter & her hubby & some *adopted* friends. You know what I mean . . . people that you love so much you're thrilled to claim them as your own! You can read a bit more about that here.
