Morning Light

There's something about the soft morning light 
that makes everything prettier, more serene.

Fresh autumn flowers from the garden seem
 more cheery, promising a day full of fun.

An unset table, the stillness of the early hour 
and quiet moments, soon to shift scenes,

as the light wakes the day, wandering through
 the silent space, gently notifying a new start,

a clear vision, a deep aspiration, a strong need to
 fill the day with soul and spirit and truth.

Thanks for visiting!

  12. I love taking photos in the morning when everything glows.....especially outside in the garden. The light in Greece must be quite strong and harsh during the day? But you all must have beautiful sunsets, I imagine. Thanks for sharing more of your home with us. It is very charming and cheerful. I need to add more color in our home.....perhaps some colorful cushions and slipcovers to cheer up the wintery months ahead.

  13. Hello,

    I saw your link on "A Return to Loveliness."

    Morning is my favorite time of any day of the year. Your home is so lovely.

  17. Found your blog when visiting Cosy Little House. I love your red and white curtains...both sets of them! Your home looks so cosy and warm. I'm a follower now and will be back to visit.

  18. I just found your delightful blog and I am hooked. Every thing is just so bright and fresh and lovely. It must be a huge change going from Canada to Greece, but by the looks of your blog, you have created a very cozy nest.
    I found you through mutual followers and I do hope that we can become mutual follower, too.
    Have a lovely week. Your newest fan, Connie :)

  19. So pretty! Just over here from the Make It Pretty linky party, and I looooove your blog! I just love the pale cream with the green you have going on here -- that's the exact combination I've been thinking about for my kitchen/dining area because it's so cozy. Love it! Glad to find you!
