Dearest Selia,
What a delight it is to visit you and share in your daily happenings. I always find such loveliness and inspiration in your sweet writings and beautiful photos!

I love the apron you made for your dear friend's birthday and the embroidered initial adds the perfect touch. You sew beautifully! Your old books are so wonderful. I know how you love Tasha Tudor and the Sumner Hymnal sounds like a delightful read. I love to read nature musings and poetry. Old books are such fun.

The apron you purchased is very pretty and feminine. I like your idea of duplicating it. The ruffles are too sweet.

I love the lavender wands you are making and I especially love that it came from your very own garden. I am so glad you have been blessed with so much lavender!

The photo of you cutting lavender is so gorgeous. You are so very beautiful and feminine! A true southern lady! Is that your garden room behind you? Oh, it looks so lovely. I love the tin pocket with the flowers in it. Your garden is just beautiful, such an inspiration. Tasha would have loved your garden!

I am so glad you saw a Hot Air Balloon, they are so cheerful looking. I look forward to seeing the new aprons you are making. Your dinner sounds so good.

I would love to see the progress you are making on your doll!

Thank you so much for sharing dear Selia. You are such a blessing and I always enjoy visiting with you!

Blessings, Paula

  • "...I want first of all...to be at peace with myself. I want a singleness of eye, a purity of intention, a central core to my life that will enable me to carry out these obligations and activities as well as I can. I want, in fact - to borrow from the language of the saints - to live "in grace" as much of the time as possible...By grace I mean an inner harmony, essentially spiritual, which can be translated into outward harmony...I would like to achieve a state of inner spiritual grace from which I could function and give as I was meant to in the eye of God..." by Anne Morrow Lindbergh Gift from the Sea

~A Garden of Thoughts~

  • THE Lord God planted a garden In the first white days of the world, And He set there an angel warden In a garment of light enfurled. So near to the peace of Heaven, That the hawk might nest with the wren, For there in the cool of the even God walked with the first of men. And I dream that these garden-closes With their shade and their sun-flecked sod And their lilies and bowers of roses, Were laid by the hand of God. The kiss of the sun for pardon, The song of the birds for mirth,-- One is nearer God's heart in a garden Than anywhere else on earth. For He broke it for us in a garden Under the olive-trees Where the angel of strength was the warden And the soul of the world found ease. ~~ by Dorothy Frances Gurney~~
  • To live content with small means, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich, to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never, in a word to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common, this is to be my symphony. - William Henry Channing
  • Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. - Marcel Proust
  • There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling. ~Mirabel Osler
