"There is...

... nothing like staying at home for real comfort." 

Jane Austen

Home is singing....

...and reading good books.

It is meals around the table, in the early morning...

...and at night.

Home is babies,

and children.

It is hanging laundry on the line,

It is mugs of hot tea,

It is fresh, homemade bread.

It is creativity,

... drawing...

...and plants hanging in windows.

It is sunshine,

it is muddy boots...

and flowers on the table.

It is beauty in God's creation...

...complete with splashes of color!
However, the most important thing about home is to remember that...


"Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it..."
Psalm 127


  1. so very beautiful. The picures, the people, the home, the love. Thankyou for sharing.

  2. Sigh... I'd love to just spend some time with you and your beautiful family. You know what true beauty is. :)

  3. once again, Rosie - the essence of home. Home truly is where the heart is! We are in the monsoon season (or so it would seem) here. But i love the rainy days! Much love to you - can hardly wait! Raquel xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

  6. That is one of my alltime favorite quotes! i really enjoy your blog, especially the pictures. i noticed several oil lamps on a cabinet ~ do you use those for light in your home daily or only on special occasions?

  7. Dear Rosie,

  9. Rosie,
    I love the pictures. Your family shows what family life is all about. Not the running around, fast food, and such. The creativity is something that is lost on so many people. You give everyone a hug and a thank you for me. You really brighten my day.

    Home is truly where the heart is, and there's nothing like being surrounded by inspirational books and the people you cherish most!
