Finding Contentment At Home

Winter has settled in.. I feel as if I slow down much more I may go into a coma... I am already starting to yearn for the days of spring with more light and longer days.. After the holidays the house seems quiet from the sounds of family laughter... Have not to give in to the daily thoughts of baking and having the aroma fill the house as it is just Tom and I that would be doing the consuming and indulging... During these days of winter I must stay persistent and try many different creations and things to keep my mind occupied and filled with happy thoughts and contentment... I really enjoy all my home time and relaxing and maybe that is the reason I do not have desires or feel the need for vacations.. and just enjoy nesting ... Now that my home is void of Christmas I hope to place some times for sale on my Etsy shop soon... would love to reap some rewards from some creations and maybe parting with a few found objects... With another New Year it is time to live and banish fear, doubt, and worry, have faith, and love and laughter and enjoy the act of living.. With not vacationing much I feel it becomes important to change the home up frequently and I do not mean going out and purchasing new.. just moving and maybe creating new vignettes, showcasing ones personal style throughout the home.. The arrival of New Year brings on day dreams of making our  life's to be filled with contentment.. I need not wish to live anywhere else so no need to pack me up and send me away... I most of the time find myself enjoying the ambiance of days gone by and its lovely gatherings of the past.. but at the same time find myself totally enjoying the modern tech of my Ipad and laptop and the hours spent blogging, and searching for answers and inspiration and for now I will bathe in the charms of the comfort of home... and wait for the sweet days of spring to once again arrive and enjoy all along the way...  

*Picture above is a wooden hand painted distressed cottage sign that hangs in my bedroom surrounded by other vintage objects... 2 Mother of Pearl buttons are gllued to the wall below the sign.. Blogger would not let me download any pictures today to share with you...

What a fine post again Marietta. Over here winter is still there, albeit a gentle one so far. January can pose some obstacles though, but we'll see. I've read on several blogs that blogger is posing some problems, hope it will work out soon. Blessings, Ira

Blogger does that to me periodically. I'm remembering the fun time I had on my cruise but it is time to think of the future.
