dear reader


 

In July, the magazine Cottages and Bungalows came to visit my home.  They took a bunch of photos and they will be published sometime next year.  I wanted to share the photos I took that very day.  I have to say this is the loveliest my home has ever looked.  I've come to learn that the greatest luxury of my home is its small size.  Dear reader, I do hope you enjoy.  xo

  9. I love the sparseness/clutter-less and organization of your rooms...the feeling is very serene....my home is small too..973 sq ft, and less furniture in small spaces feels very calming and peaceful...most of my furniture is from antique stores because of the size....furniture these days is too large....thank you for posting...
