Peonies in Every Room of Our House.

Thursday, April 14, 2016


One of the most effective ways of making a table come alive is flowers. There is a 'togetherness' at the table which comes into focus when all eyes are drawn to the center. There is a tendency to talk about the beauty seen there and be affected by it. It's invaluable in drawing a table full of people together to share food, thoughts, ideas and problems...

Interior decoration is not just one's artistic efforts, but it is that which your home (even if it is just a room) is. If you are 'decorating' with clothes draped on every chair, with scratched and broken furniture- it is still your interior decoration! Your home expresses you to other people, and they cannot see or feel your daydreams of what you expect to make in that misty future, when all the circumstances are what you think they must be before you will find it worthwhile to start. You have started, whether you recognize that fact or not! We foolish mortals sometimes live through years not realizing how short life is, and that TODAY is your life.

--Edith Schaeffer from one of my favorite books, The Hidden Art of Homemaking

HAPPY PEONY SEASON!!
