‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

And Now For Something Completely Different...

(Yes, I'm a Monty Python fan...)
Anyway, in my copious free time, I collect photos of my dream cottage. I don't have a dream home, it's a dream cottage. It's small and cozy and the floors are uneven and the paint is peeling a bit, but the fireplace is always in use and my grandmother's throw rugs are everywhere, and, well, it's perfect. Mind you, I do not yet live in my dream cottage. I may not get there till I'm eighty, but a girl can dream, can't she? So, as a little vacation from RADland, I bring you glimpses of my imaginary abode. Make yourself at home! I don't want the chandelier (I'm not the chandelier type) but I love the bed, the walls and the fireplace!
Ooh! My heart leaps for joy when I see this cozy room!

Never a more perfect staircase have I seen...

We had a tub like this in my childhood home. I miss it. This kind of charm is hard to come by in a cookie-cutter 1950's ranch.

I love this kitchen area! It makes me want to go make tea and write letters to friends far away!

Ok, we now return to our regular programing.....


  1. oooo...I hope I can visit. that place looks wonderful. Much better than any house I've ever seen. I'd always pick a cottage.

  2. I love it! White is my favorite color when it comes to home decorating. Too bad it doesn't stay white, with 5 kids! :( I've switched to blacks and browns.

  3. Ahh, it's these vacations that keep us going, isn't it? You've got great taste!
