I love when a peaceful corner of our home catches my eye, filling my heart with both gratitude and inspiration. I've yet to iron the tablecloth and it doesn't quite fit that table, yet I do like the change in our breakfast nook. The striped shades of blue and white match our kitchen walls perfectly and a wooden bowl full of mini pumpkins is rather cheerful. I'm thinking of having the tablecloth cut and hemmed to fit the table better, but for now, the charming imperfection suits our home. Johnny approves and so do the cats, and Milo's newest antic is to hop from the counter to the table (over and over, back and forth) making a mess of the creatively-folded tablecloth. Harley's personality is much different - he merely sits on the table looking pretty. Milo is our little clown; he also teaches me to be much less uptight.
That's all I wanted to share today other than two bits of art:
-We watched The Painted Veil last night and loved it. A high recommendation from both Simmonses. You can read a great Curator article by Christy Tennant about the film here.
-I don't care what this review says, I can't wait to read Anne Rice's new memoir, Called Out of Darkness. Johnny and I love the Christ the Lord books and some of the vampire stories, so we're planning a bookstore/coffee outing this week to purchase Rice's latest book. She is fascinating.
Happy Sabbath, y'all.
