Hi Koralee! Thank you for your sweet images and simply lovely thoughts. One of them made me think of a story about some curtains that I'd seen in a restored home in Vicksburg, MS, recently. The husband just couldn't understand how the new drapery in the dining room could be SO expensive. The wife, a REAL southern belle, answered that "The room insisted on them." I decided that I needed to remember that line, for future purchases that my own home might insist upon! xx P&H

Such pretty colours in these images paired with sweet words :)

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
R & R sounds like the kind of shop I would frequently visit!
The color of the candle is so you! And do tell us what Heaven smells like! Is it floral, like essential oils or clean & pure ?

I would love it if my favorite shop had tea and treats as well as candles etc. Oh how I wish we all weren't so far apart! I would love to be able to drive over to R & R on my way home from work for a sweet visit...
Thank you for this post, Koralee ~ it makes the world feel closer and sweeter ♥
hugs to you! ~Maria

Parker said...

Dearest Koralee,

Your photo's always make my day prettier. I love checking in. Thank you for being concerned about my Bono Baby. He is doing much better. He lost 24 of his little teeth. He is now on soft food but he seems to like it. You, my dear, are wonderful and I feel blessed to know you are out there in the world.

hugs,
Fritzi Marie
