holy experience

Joining Ann today

Counting blessings

"These I have loved:
White plates and cups, clean-gleaming,
Ringed with blue lines; and feathery, faery dust;
Wet roofs, beneath the lamplight; the strong crust
Of friendly bread; and many-tasting food;
Rainbows; and the blue bitter smoke of wood."

Rupert Brooke


230 - the marriage bed *

233 - the last of the summer dahlias

235 - a gift from far away

237 - cake

238 - light on the water

The last of the summer dahlias are beautiful!

I always enjoy the quotes, poems, words of wit and wisdom at the beginning of your lists! 232 and 237 look delicious! Here's to Home, Hearth and Hospitality, may your week be blessed as well, thanks Jodi!

Beautiful, beautiful. Making me smile in the midst of a difficult day.

Loving that poem. Loving. And Andrew Wyeth. And paisley. And crimson dahlias in blue and white china. And lanterns (I have two EXACTLY like yours sitting atop my oak armoir.)

And I am comforted and uplifted in the knowledge that you are praying for me. And thankful.

"Content" is an underrated word. Love your photos and hope they do bring you true contentment. Love the dahlias. Sigh.

Helen said...

I loved seeing the river photo, light on the water, as well as the paua shell.

Kristi in the Western Reserve said...

Lovely post and photos! I have the same blue pitcher you do, and an abalone shell. I miss the smell of leaves burning in the fall. This was always a part of my childhood, but it's better for global warming not to do this, I think.

Hana - Marmota said...

I love that poem, too. Those are all things I could love as well (and do: blue and white china? Oh, my!)

Kim Hyland said...

Jodi, what a beautiful home you must make. Such beauty in such simple things. Thank you for noticing and reminding me to look.

Jodi said...

Kim, thank you very much. Most everything in our home has been thrift shopped, flea marketed, or dare I say, trash picked. Not ashamed, heehee. It's fun. Beauty from the discarded.

Jodi said...

Thanks everyone for sharing. Your thoughts are always welcome.

Val said...

I love the Brooke...thank you :0)

Kerrie said...

Oh beautiful list, as always. I LOVE that Wyeth painting. Love it. On our vacation to Maine this summer we got to go to a whole museum dedicated to the Wyeths...I think you would have loved it.
