Treat everyone. . .

with politeness~



Even those who are rude to you~




not because they are nice~





but because you are.







Grace isn't a little prayer you say before receiving a meal. . .








It's a way to live. . .I am asking God to help me live with grace each day. . .













I have been "fluffing my nest" quite a bit. I am sharing pictures of my cottage apartment living room. . .












I have added rosy pillows, plates and paintings to give it a cottage look. . .















I have been able to purchase several Christy Repasy paintings and some of her beautiful vintage bottles. . .
















I had thought I would decorate my new home in a little different manner, but I am who I am and this is the style I love. I hope you are having a good week so far, dear friends. You are a blessing to me!

Hi Vicki, Your home looks so inviting and I agree with your post today about how you should treat people. My parents always taught us to treat people how you wanted to be treated. You can usually get what you want with kindness then being rude. I enjoyed reading your previous post. I doing some me time. Have a great day. Hugs Your Missouri Friend.

Your home is very sweet and cozy. My style is kind of all over the place. Yesterday I find a site with Bohemian interiors and boy was I hooked. I'm thinking that is definitely my style, though around here, there's a bit of everything (even my country roots :) Wishing you a great rest of the week. Tammy

Vicki dear, thank you for that beautiful reminder about Grace. I must take that sentiment with me every day.

You've truly made your apartment a lovely inviting cottage home. I always love coming to visit you. I've always wanted my home to be the kind of place that when people come into it, they never want to leave.

Love,
Marianne xo

It's so beautiful Vicki. It is everything I love. Isn't Christie's art absolutely amazing?
Sometimes I think I'm going to try something new too, but then I think why should I when I love my home just the way it is!
have a wonderful weekend.
Sending hugs...

By the way, Vicki, I meant to tell you that the new header of the woman in bonnet is such a pretty thing. I wish I had painted it...col...

Hi Vicki, thanks for your visit. I don't do Pinterest. Blogging is more than enough for me. But I did find several places with pinned images and the blogs where they came from so that kept me busy the other day. Sure is easy to get hooked just gazing at such lovely things. Hope you are having a wonderful day. Tammy
