Living with light......

                        Every time I walk into my kitchen I am amazed and in awe of the light.....
                            the way it bounces around the room....like a giddy child...
                                     making everything in its path look special....
                                          the way it affects the mood of all who enter....
                                and how my herbs just adore it....  
                                   how it makes everything look soft and romantic...
                                   no matter what the time of day...
                                oh yes.....dear sweet light your welcome always in my home....
                                      as are you my wonderful blogging friends.....
                                    I welcome you with open arms.......x0x0

You are one lucky gal to have such sweet light in your home. Ours does not have great natural light - so I'm a bit envious. Delightful pics btw!

I love the simplicity of the crucifix hanging on the lid. What a beautiful touch.

Robynne's Nest said...

Beautiful shots again Chrissy...and a lovely blog. Being fairly new to blogging myself, I can't believe how much I am enjoying interacting with women like yourself. I'm find as I get older...that the females in my life have a growing importance...whether a family member, an old friend, or a blogging friend...the women in my life are a valuable source of inspiration and support. Oh god, I must be hormonal at the moment!!! Thankyou for your lovely comments about my kitchen, I think we may have a lot in common as many of the pictures in your home reflect some of the 'stuff' I have been collecting. Robx

Bohemian said...

Your Kitchen is lovely and I too welcome the Light into our Home... the only thing I abhor in a Home is a dark cave atmosphere, I would think it would be depressing... light is so uplifting.

You house is so pretty. We came from a house with lots of huge picture windows and this newer home doesn't have nearly the light my last one did. I miss it so much!

It has been sunny here even with the snow still on the ground. Your pictures are beautiful, I always like the look of green plants against white. Oh and those bed pictures, definately good for naping.

Chrissy, these are such beautiful photos! I am in love with light, too.. it just makes everything so much nicer. Looks like you are enjoying your new swoon-inducing kitchen. It is so incredible! Now I want to go hunt down a pair of old vintage scizzors. ;) Take care!
