Everything looks so very beautiful. The Louvre is so fantastic. SIGH~someday I will visit all these beautiful European cities. It is my dream and goal.



Oh my gosh, thanks for sharing your photos!!! They are all Beautiful.....I would love to go to Paris. I bet the Cafe's are really neat.....although those cars are way too small! :)
The statues are brother in law brought back 600+ photos of Rome and gave me copies as well, so I have enjoyed using them and living through his trip from college :)

So pretty France and England are. I've never been. Your blog is beautiful...I will be back. xo Fairmaiden at Sea Cottage


Dear Selia,

How beautiful! I love France, and seeing such gorgeous pictures was almost like being there~thanks so much for sharing your trip!

The tiny cars are so practical; too bad we don't have those here!




What an absolutely beautiful post. I've enjoyed this very much... hugs ~lynne~


My dearest Selia,

I am so HAPPY to see another post from you dear friend!!! I have missed you terribly and look forward to every thing you have to share!!! You are so thoughtful to share photos of your trip to France. I am sorry Tim and Maria had the flu during the trip. That must have been awful. France is just as beautiful as England! The buildings are amazing and so beautiful. Speaking of beautiful, you are GORGEOUS!!! Oh, you look so very happy, too!

I know it must have been so exciting to visit the Louver, and see those masterpieces in person. I would have been very emotional as well. The painting is amazing... how wonderful for you to have the same one in your laundry room... on a smaller scale. :) The statues are beautiful and the ceilings are breathtaking! I can imagine how delicious the food was. Justin always tells me he wishes to go to Europe for all of the history he has read, and to eat in France!

I love the tiny cars, and the trains are beautiful. They look fast.!

Thank you for sharing the lovely quote! I did enjoy the peek into your wonderful trip! Dear Selia, you touch everyone's life with your beauty, creativity, and kind ways. I am thrilled you are blogging again! I am so blessed to have met you through your beautiful blog!

Much love to you sweet friend!

P.S. I am enjoying your beautiful selection of music.

  • "...I want first of 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
