Of Hearth and Home – The Art of Home

Homelife has a goodness and beauty that we all need. It brings me joy to create a pleasing space to live in and finding loveliness in the everyday. Winter especially makes me crave the time to create warmth, coziness, Hygge, or Gemütlichkeit (whatever you want to call it) in our home.

Making Home is it’s own wonderful art.

“By creating simple rituals without effort {such as brewing real tea with a little china cup every evening to stopping at the flower shop every week} the Danes see both the domestic and personal life as an art form and not every drudgery to get away from.” source

Warm In Winter

Winter is officially still about six weeks away, but our days are getting colder and darker so to this former Texan, winter is here. Which makes for a really bad time to start trying to lose weight (shoot!), but the best time for Gingerbread cookies, a cup of coffee and cozying up to read good books on the couch!

Yesterday was cold and cloudy. Lily and I went to the library and got some new books to read, then sat and ate our favorite cookies. Mmmm.
