A Simple Little House
Last week my friend Kelli did the most beautiful post by using this lovely poem she had found in a magazine. She encouraged other's to do it so I decided to give it a try. I had so much fun going back through my archives to find the appropriate pictures to match up with the words. You should try it, too! Thanks, Kelli, for a wonderful idea!

I like a little simple house
With flowers by the door,

An ample larder for my needs
And not much more in store.

I like a window toward the sun
And doors that open wide,
The trickle of a bath for birds
With feathered friends beside.

I like a tiny nook inside

Where my books and slippers lie,
A cup of tea,
A magazine,
A warming hearth nearby.

I'd like some trinkets on the sills,
White ruffles at the panes,

The comfort of a sturdy roof
To shelter me from rains.

I like the cozy ambiance,
A place of sweet retreat.

Where life unfolds along the way

And each new day's a treat!
