Let me show you a corner of our home that has remained unchanged literally for years....
The Chinese rug hanging on the wall was a flea market find some thirty years ago, the basket we purchased in a Guatemalan market on our 1978 trip through Central America.
Other things have been added over time....
The painting was an early eBay find, the fabric flowers I had to have, even though they're fake, because I love brugmansia.
The rocking chair gets quite a lot of use, as it faces the living room couch.
Every morning I take my mug of coffee to the end of the sofa, sink down and lean into its large, upholstered arm, and do my best to acknowledge the day.
Many mornings, but especially on weekends, the husband sits across from me, in this rocking chair, and together we review the progress of ongoing house projects, or share details of the most recent pet misadventure.
Every home has one of these special places, where ordinary things are quietly discussed over the last sips of morning coffee.......
