My mom and I have reserved two nights at this beautiful bed and breakfast. I love to visit B & B's. It always feels like you're stayin with friends. We just want to get away and relax, read, antique and chill, low profile. I think this will be the perfect place! I love the pond and I can't wait to head to the square and catch some bluegrass music. There's a wonderful "Ole Time" store that has the soda boxes. You feel like your stepping back in time. I'm a week out and can't hardly wait but I'll post pics of our adventure. Just wanted to give you a sneak peek.

Quotes are one of the many things I collect. I was browsing through my favorite ones and ran across this scripture.."To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Ecc 3:1" I believe that. Of course I believe everything the Bible says so that's not a stretch for me. I have my own collection of old clocks, some are broken, peeling, they may not even work anymore. I don't care. I like to display them to remind me of this passage of scripture and that time is a precious commodity. All the hands are set to different times. For me this is significant as well. I won't bore you to death with all my philosophies regarding time and my clock collection but I do have my own thoughts on "There is a time"..Just randomness, but humor me.

There is a time to speak up and a time to remain silent (haven't quite mastered that one yet)

There is a time that the laundry needs to be done (working on this one as well)

There is a time to collect and a time to sell some of the MANY things you have collected. (That time has come)

There is a time to refrain from conversation b/c it's not in the best interest of either party (That time was today)

There is a time to do what's best for the other person and not what you really want to do (I really wanted to be selfish though)

There is a time to dust..(That time is definitely been for a while now?)

There is a time to do nothing (I'm looking forward to learning how to do that again)

There is a time to trun the computer off and go to sleep (I think that time is's almost midnight)

Share your thoughts on "there is a time" with me :)

We just bought a new house :) I am really excited about creating a new space that houses our "old favorite things"
We painted almost every surface in the house! There are still some things that haven't found their home yet, but we're getting there. Here are a few pics to share.

Don't you just love old quilts? I do. I feel honored to snuggle into something that someone has spent hours piecing together. I have several I have picked up at flea markets or yard sales for a few bucks. They are tattered and soft from many years of wear but still they are my favorite to curl up with a good book or an afternoon nap.
