January Domesticity

A far too familiar scene
Before January slips away into the history books, I thought I'd share some domestic scenes from the house...

Pine scented bubbles thanks to Mrs. Meyer's

Hot Apple Cider K-cups on sale... a very good thing.

Waiting for tea time (Splenda in the sugar bowl)

A custom made calendar from my daughter

Thrifted snowman who wanted to come home with me

Cozy pictures all. I've been so tempted by the Keurig. Next time we must replace the coffee maker... The calendar is wonderful. Talented Stephanie! I'm also intrigued by Mrs. Meyers' products. Haven't seen them, but haven't been to anywhere that you suggest sells them...Target for example. Sweet snowman, too. I see the wee hearts. Will you get snow in February?

I liked the blue tea cozy (even though I not a huge tea drinker--just a wannabe). And the picture on the calendar is SO good. I'd love to see the rest of them!

I love scenes like this! It gives me a companionable feeling to think of others (like you) washing up their dis he's or doing some other homely duty when I'm doing my own work here.

I like the splash board area behind your bubbly sink with the pretty peaches.

I LOVE your pictures. They are always so comforting, inviting and utterly charming. I FINALLY got all of the dishes washed right before dinner, blinked and both sinks were full again. *sigh*
I actually love to wash dishes though, it is one of the only quiet thinking times I have during the day :)

Love your crocheted pot holders! Did you make them?

I like your scenes of domesticity! I'm so happy you are reading George MacDonald! He has, more than any author taught me of the infinite love of God for us. C.S. Lewis said there was never any writing he did but that MacDonald had influenced him. If you live in the midwest you might want to see The Edwin Brown Collectionhttp://library.taylor.edu/cslewis/collection/biography.shtml at Taylor University. It is in my hometown Upland, Indiana
and if you want a tour other than during their hours you can contact me. The painting in the "Pub" is of George MacDonald. We'd love to have anyone visit. The collection is quite a treasure!
Blessings to you,
Beth Kreider

The calendar from your daughter looks so beautiful, are they pictures of her home? What a great gift idea.
