Dear ones, Fall is in the air – and for the time being – I am thoroughly enjoying it – because I know it is probably temporary at least for another month. Are you changing over your home’s decor to fall; are you thinking of soups and stews you’ll be making? I am thinking of […]

I was listening to one of my favorite garden radio shows based in Atlanta. Callers present their problems and the host helps identify the issue and propose a course of action. One of the callers was concerned about a 20+ year-old Dogwood tree that was suffering. Its bark was peeling, its leaves were few and […]

PicMonkey Collage

I had been moving right along with the living room transformation beginning with the wall color, painted furniture, slipcovers and pillows. Now, I needed to address the windows. Initially, I had cream color curtains over the French doors, on a whim, I decided to go with Red Toile Curtains. At first, I didn’t think they […]

A Return to Loveliness…

Autumn-Breakfast-Tea-muffins-A-Delightsome-Life

I spent some time preparing for deep cleaning. One of the books I’m reading suggests that we only keep those things around us that bring us joy. Those things that remind us of Loveliness…it made me think, do I have things around me that don’t bring me joy…I am going to take the time to […]

toujours

            Toujours is a French adverb that means,  “Always, Anyway, Any How, At Least and Still”  I have determined to remind myself to apply this word to my life. I liked the sound of the word and thought that in my words, actions and deeds if I first thought   Toujours […]

Welcome to Home and Garden Thursday These days are just flying by…I hear talk of Christmas decorations at the store; I am sure they’re there, I haven’t been able to be out shopping much. Country life for the most part is a quiet life – especially if you have to travel some distance for ‘good’ […]

We’re having a lazy start to our Saturday at A Delightsome Life. We have a wedding to go to this afternoon. Our son will be best man and Dearest will sing Etta James’ ‘At Last’. It is going to be a beautiful day. As I was looking around, the theme for Saturday’s inspiration came from […]

Blue, White & Silver Tablescape…

Midsummer   Inspired by Endless Summer Blue Hydrangea     There’s something beautiful and restless about midsummer. The heat can be so overwhelming, it is no wonder we seek the sweetness and lightness of blue and white.   “Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.” […]
