You`ve Got Mail.


Something dropped through the slot in my front door.

And landed on my floor.

Why am I so excited?


This came in the mail.


You can`t think of a better word than that?

How about–

beautous, bewitching, gorgeous, delightful, captivating,

delicate, delicious, delightful,

alluring, adorable, fair,

lovesome, knockout, pleasing, scrumptious,

dainty, comely, exquisite. …

That`s better.

I love me my Anthropologie wishbook!

[I said “wishbook” because catalouge, catouloge, catalogg is a word I cannot spell.]

Catalog. There it is!

Would I love to LOOK like what, while I serve you all THAT?

Well, yes I would!

Check. out. that. buffet.

A ghost is not turning the page.

That`s why it`s so helpful to have children.

Two year olds make great page turners.

No, Laila doesn`t wear fancy sweaters to bop around the house.

Grimy jammies or sticky pants usually.

Elle Laments.

“Mom, we`ll never have a life like this!”

I told her something very wise,

“In heaven we will”.

No, we didn`t say that.

Plus, I`ve heard that heaven is out of our comprehension.



A bedroom fit for a very artsy, and classy little family.

That`s not us.

We have a layer of dust on our headboards and dresser right now.

And the sheets are always bunched up from two small lassies that love to climb in and slumber too.

[I thought “lassies” more Anthro-ish than “girls”.]

But I don`t think it really works there either.

I guess my mind just goes to a certain legendary, heroic dog.

Moving on…

Is it okay to say that a CATALOG of pretty things made her-

generally happy , sometimes hectic, and yes, also humdrum


a lot


lovely today?


Today`s SSS is from Michele:

(THANK YOU, Michelle!)

Awesome idea.

“Super Simple Saver: When cooking double the recipe and stick half of it in the freezer for later. I do this with spaghetti, lasagna, chicken tetrazzini, tator tot casserole, refrigerator mash potatoes, chili soup. It comes in very handy when you know you’re going to have a busy day!”


and a Post Script:

I need more SSSs from YOU.

    I must say I have become more..”worldy-wise”, shall we say, because of you. Before you there was no “Anthropologie”. And now there is!
    And I wish I was smart enough to come up with cool SSS ideas. Really. Not only can I not think what to put on walls,I can’t think of cool tips to make life easier…

    LOVE this post! Pictures of your house and your girls are so warm and inviting. And I LOVE what you said about Beauty being Worship. I never put it into those words before, but that is how I view it as well. It draws my soul to God to create, to restore, to be in and work with beauty… You said it so well.
