…this dear, neglected place…with some recent photos from Wisteria & Sunshine. It’s a year since the pandemic really began for most of us, four months since I last left you something to find here, three weeks since I let go of Instagram and a day until I turn 62. I am taking a birthday break from my usual round for the next week and that spaciousness inspired me to visit here. I will freshen up the rooms and furnishings when I want to sit down and have a change from the clearing I’m doing inside, and the pleasures I’m soaking up outside as the sun pours down and the breezes warm.
My hope is that as I continue to let go and refine and integrate in my small world (the work of becoming an elder-woman, a rose hip…at least for me) I will find a rhythm for posting here. It’s something that’s been elusive for many years, but as I seem to be finding my way back to the earlier, slower, unencumbered days of the interwebs, it feels more possible now.
Enjoy your early March days!

I smiled when I saw the first book, with March, as I keep it out also, to cheer me through the year. Would you mind sharing the second book? The birds and blooms… spring can’t be too far off. I look forward to seeing you more in this space again.

Hello dear Laurie,
That book is All Around the Year by Elsa Beskow. It and Edith and my kitchen book, Through the Kitchen Window, are always open in my home. And often some Tasha Tudor.
How lovely to know that you also keep it out.

Oh…so lovely that you recognize Mrs. Thaw! She was my favorite to make and the only one I place on the altar since my sons are long gone. And she has done her work here.
Wishing you, also, a very happy spring. xo
