"A man's home is his wife's castle."
~Alexander Chase

The Living Room...

"Be grateful for the home you have, 
knowing that at this moment, 
all you have is all you need."
~ Sarah Ban Breathnach

In the Bathroom...

 The Kitchen...

"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, 
or believe to be beautiful."
~William Morris

And from the kitchen into the dining room...

"Home is a place not only of strong affections, but of entire unreserved; it is life's undress rehearsal, its backroom, its dressing room, from which we go forth to more careful and guarded intercourse, leaving behind us much debris of cast-off and everyday clothing."
~Harriet Beecher Stowe

Our calendar...

Looking *in*...

The Laundry Room...

 "Home -- that blessed word, which opens to the human heart the most perfect glimpse of Heaven, and helps to carry it thither, as on an angel's wings."
~Lydia M. Child
