Fresh Morning Air

Having completed her morning chores, the young girl grabbed a small basket and made her way through the house. She stopped in the kitchen to grab a tall clear bottle and placed it inside the basket, continuing on her way; a determined look filled her face. Slowly she opened the door and filled her lungs with the fresh morning air. Smiling she put her basket down on the ground, removed the clear bottle and placed it next to the basket. Leaving the front stoop for a brief moment, she returned with a chair, placing it next to the other items. Stretching, she again took a deep breath of the fresh morning air and sat down in the chair. She picked up her book and the bottle and settled in for a well deserved break before the others woke for their day.

The Little Cottage

Long weekends mean packing up the car and heading off to the cottage after a long winters rest. We make the year trip each year telling our friends and family that we are going to the cottage to rest and relax. Yet we know we are going to clean up the long winters dust, open the windows, and set up the cottage for the season until it comes time to close it up again for the long winters rest. We spend our long weekend cleaning up the yard, replanting flowers, and airing out the cabin. We are find ourselves just as busy as the work week, yet this is more rewarding in the end.

The Entrance Way

The entrance way of the home is the first thing our guests see. My grandma use to say that you can tell a lot about the people who live in a home by their entrance way; something I never really gave much thought to as a children. Now that I think back to my grandma and the things she would say, I can now see how the entrance way opens the world to those who live within the home. Some entrance ways are clean with everything in their place and others are a mess with items strewn here and there. My favourite entrance ways are those with clear signs of animals and children. You know this home is filled with love and they are not afraid to show it.

The Sitting Room

Often we find ourselves standing in a small empty space wondering what we should fill it with. Sometimes, we create a lavishly decorated room that leaves people admired with out skills. Other times, we go with a minimalist approach and stand back taking in the room and satisfied with our “less is more” frame of mind that day. Adorned in neutral tones with a hint of colour here and there, the small sitting room stood out from the other spaces within the house, and I couldn’t be happier.
