Friday Favorites

"The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books." - Henry Longfellow

1. books and chairs 2. yellow shoes 3. pine cones
4. closer mystery 5. quilt 6. bird's-eye view of new york city
7. parlor floor 8. the queens and the hive 9. guest room

A light-studded breeze,
The scent of old books,
Shoes tiptoe there.
And up above
In the attic so full,
Memories hide
'Neath timbers and gloom.
Behind the pale door
With a knob marble-round,
There lies a quilt
Of each cheery hue.
Fireplace and chair,
Lamp glowing warm,
Old books and pictures
And flower-print charm.
The place I call home
May look like that,
But even if not,
I'll thank God for this:
He knows me and loves me,
And I'm safe by His side.

-Melissa M.

I could curl up in the post and go to sleep. It's my kind of home too! :)
