Peaceful Sunday…..


Autumn in Appalachia

Love is something you can't describe
like the look of a rose,
the smell of the rain,
or the feeling of forever.

 A little fall inspiration to start your weekend off right…..

We remember……..





by ~Sarah Petrie

Normal morning

Shattered by thieves of existence,

Helplessly watching

My heart is so torn

Mass pain, inexpressible by words, incomprehensible

Tears hold more voice than I.

I long to hold you;

I long to hold you, to wipe the dust of catastrophe from you;

So many weep; I feel helpless.

I see your searching soul

Panic, pain, confusion

Your loved ones are lost

"Where have they gone?'

'Can you help them?'

Perhaps they are here,


Perhaps not.

I wish I could help you;

That day my tears called out your name;

I will never forget you.

New rugs for the living room……


I recently purchased two new rugs for the living room since the ones I purchased a couple of months ago simply weren’t working for our household. The two rugs that were in the living room were moved to the bedrooms.

It all started with an email informing me of a sale on their website. Naturally I had to go have a peek and while I wasn’t looking for a rug I couldn’t help but click on the picture when I saw it. It was just what  had in mind when I originally started my search for new rugs for the living room.

I loved the sea grass rugs I had before. They wore like iron and were easy to clean but after eight years it was time for new rugs. However since I am no longer using the white slipcovers I wanted something that wasn’t all beige since my furniture is natural linen.

The new rugs are made of hemp with strips of leather woven thru. I was a little surprised when the rugs arrived and the ends of the strips were not secured and poked out on the top side of the rug. I love the way the rugs look because they look like something you would find in an old French farm house. However I am not sure how well they will hold up in the long run. The description on the website said they are very durable which is why I purchased them…..I guess only time will tell?!?!?! If you have small children or curious pets I don’t think these would be a good purchase.

*Edited to add: The rugs were purchased at: Soft Surroundings *

Have a great week my friends!

Peaceful Sunday……


Abandoned country church


Heaven Sent
Love ruled the day when the angels came to meet
Sweeping them up and off of their feet
Neither of them knowing what the future would bring
Two hearts together and one diamond ring
Today it’s a promise, so sweet and so pure
Together forever, for love shall endure
A blessing from above, this story is told
A love to last a lifetime and a hand to hold
It was no accident that this came to be
Now you must realize that it really takes three
So, go hand and hand to a future unknown
Knowing that with the Lord, you will never be alone
With the angels still near and dear to the heart
This couple shall prosper and never grow apart
For it’s not always the eye that is the first to see
What really matters in life and what is meant to be
So remember that to love is time well spent
And what brought you two together was heaven sent
