Love MUCH & Live WELL

Oh, how some things JUST belong
in February, BUT... still do well thereafter!
Things like... HEARTS, roses, quilts,
snow & cold temps!
And even better is anything HANDMADE...
such as sweet, Valentine's & sugar cookies, NOT to mention these... Kentucky, Bourbon Barrel Ring... HEARTS!

Available over at 'Beehind Thyme MarketPlace'
(can be found on sidebar) OR local pickup
here at the farm!

HAPPY... & blessed February,
SWEET friends!

The Foot Of The Cross...

Consider it pure joy,
my brothers, whenever you face
trials of many kinds. 
James 1:2

The season's of life...
 bring us to the foot of the cross & that's
by choice, not because we're made too.
The foot of the cross... it's a place
of letting go, BUT not without feeling
the rawness of our pain.

I've been THERE... not once, BUT...
many times throughout my 45 years of life!

(each story will be shared)

I've became familiar with God's JOY...
the ONLY joy that can bring
And... TODAY, I encourage YOU, my friend
 to do the same... seek the ONE, whom can
provide you relief from the MANY trials & tribulations.
Our Father is faithful... He's watching...
reaching for YOU!

My hope is that... from the pain
I've endured this side of heaven... I can JUST
say one word, give one hug... share one story
to help someone in need OR someone, whom
finds themselves drifting out to sea.

'His blood was shed for YOU...
 to live in abundance'!
May we ALL find ourselves blessed today...

It's a NEW day...

Life is what we
make it, always has been,
always will be.
-Grandma Moses

It's a NEW day...
with God's abundant grace & peace!

I'm resting in the SIMPLICITY
of these words... & I encourage
YOU too, as well!

There are ALWAYS flowers...

There are always flowers
for those who want
to see them.
-Henri Matisse

AND... I want to see 'Foxgloves',
how about YOU???

With their fairy shaped bonnets
& spotted throats!

These biennial, BLOOMING beauties
 bring rewarding moments
to ANY garden!  Be sure 
to sow dozens of seeds for they
come with MUCH needed
patience... from start to finish!

May ALL your gardens
grow with love...

BLESSED Sunday...
from my home to YOURS!

HOME... is where the story begins...

Collect things you love,
that are authentic to you,
and your house
becomes your story.
-Erin Flett 

Goodness... it's already the second month
of another year & that fast it's February 17th!
Everyday means a closer step
toward spring, a renewal time of year!
And... here at the farm, it brings on a change
of things about the home!  I love trading 
places & spaces with some of my favorite 
pieces around the house!
The focus EVERY year is simplicity...
that means cleared counter space;
less furniture & NO rugs/throw rugs,
JUST texture tile & smooth hardwood!

Oh, by the way... these ADORABLE 
grouping of VINTAGE creamers are up 
for offer over at the... 
*CLICK on the link right below* 

(THIS grouping of IRONSTONE has been SOLD)

Then there's ironstone...
there could NEVER be enough said,
IRONSTONE can create that warm, SIMPLE
feeling inside ANY home!

If you're like me... you have several
different collections & there's more times
than not... a story is carried with them OR the
reason for becoming a collector of
one particular piece!

I say with EACH season...
there comes this nesting mood to
CREATE a homey feeling... BUT, not
at the expense of a cluttered look,
SO choose those collections carefully!

(This grouping of GOODS has been SOLD)
If you're like me... you have several
different collections & it's okay
to mix & match!  I like to 
keep a warm, solid tone flowing...
as ABOVE, mixing in some 
white milk glass along side the 
ironstone... gives it dimension,
as the white patina from the 
VINTAGE concrete does as well!

AND... the nesting of SPRING 
isn't complete without adding a touch
of herbs, whether it be dried OR fresh!

It's all about creating 
that HOME;
your home; my home; 
her home; his home; their home!

Don't miss the SMALL things
that speaks YOUR story!
