“With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?”


― Oscar Wilde


I am going to Tuscaloosa today to help Shanley in her apartment.  She does not have internet yet (hence my reason for going...someone must let the cable guy in).  I will take a few books to help inspire me as I make decisions about our home library.  I am getting very excited about it!

I have a very special Literary Friday post planned for tomorrow.  I hope you will stop by!



Until next time...

Blessings!

  2. These images--the flowers with the books are stunning! So is the flower arrangement on your previous post--the one on your beautiful breakfast table. Wow, you really have a great eye! I think I better go follow you on Pinterest . . .

  14. I love them too. I need to keep more flowers in the house. More fresh flowers really. I have dried flowers from our wedding (four years ago) and vintage books on the same shelf.
