A Rosy Winter Treat


Ahhhhhh, Valentine's Day is now a memory.

But some of the red roses received from hubs are still alive.


They spread their ruby beauty from a crystal vase on the kitchen table.

They are a joyous sight on a gray winter day.


It's important to fill our living spaces with beauty, don't you think?

I learned a lot about surrounding one's self with beauty from Alexandra Stoddard.



She's an interior designer and author of several books.

Whenever the bookshelves get weeded, her books remain. 

It's impossible to part with them, just as it's impossible to part with the sweet roses, until they sigh their last breath of life.


WHAT DO YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU SEE A ROSE?

Dolly Delights


Whenever there is a holiday, some of the dolls come down from the second floor doll room to share in the fun.




Actually, they are part of the decorations.


For this month's Valentine's Day, some of the smaller ladies found their way to the dining room Guatemalan hutch.




Out in the hallway, ladies in pink and white welcomed visitors.


Think the pink, red, and white-clad girls will stick around for awhile.


Near Easter time, dolls wearing pastel outfits usually take their places in the hutch.



DO YOU EVER DECORATE YOUR HOME WITH THINGS FROM A HOBBY OF YOURS?

Mother's Nature's Gifts to Us Are Profound


Living in a climate where the sun remains hidden for days at a time can get on one's nerves.

However, when the sun does pop out, and gray skies turn to blue, dotted with almost see-through, delicate, white clouds, it's cause for celebration.


The world holds so much wonder. 

For instance, I snapped the photos in this post while waiting for an acquaintance to come out from an appointment.


Such beauty is just there for our enjoyment. All we have to do is look for it.


WHAT IS SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL YOU SEE RIGHT NOW?  WILL YOU BE SO KIND AS TO TELL US?
