Good Morning!  The sun is shining, my lawn is getting mowed, the flowers are blooming, the tomatoes are getting closer to eating, the basil is for the using, and life is good.  I am reminded that it is the simple things in life that matter most of all! I just had a visit with my daughter in Ohio and she sounds happy and well and is making progress on their house.  Today they are in route to Ikea in Pittsburgh to do some shopping. 
This is the Simplify pillow I designed a while ago, and I'm happy to look at it my favorite napping chair......notice the quilt on the back for covering up with.  It is actually taken from one of the block in my Sweet and Simple sampler quilt that will soon find it's way on my web site.  The label on the back of this pillow reads, "Our life is frittered away by details....Simplify, Simplify,"  - Henry David Thoreau
"Going back to a simpler life is not a step backward."  - Yogi

  1. I am loving this wander through your house! Such lovely things!

  2. Really pretty. I don't think we can find out what is truly important to our life unless we get rid of all the extraneous. Bare bones, happy thoughts.
