This post is all about this old house, the home that we have treasured memories in.
The Home At Peace
Here is a little world where children play
And just a few red roses greet [September];
Above it smiles God’s stretch of [autumn] sky;
Here laughter rings to mark the close of day;
There is no greater splendor far away.
Here slumber comes with all her dream supply,
And friendship visits as the days go by;
Here love and faith keep bitterness at bay.
Should up this walk come wealth or smiling fame,
Some little treasures might be added here,
But life itself would still remain the same;
Love is not sweeter in a larger sphere.
This little world of ours wherein we live
Holds now the richest joys which life can give.

Our front door in the summer and our front door at Christmas…
Views of our house from the back.
Side yard with art details on the garage/shop.
Before the patio covers are up.
With the patio covers and before we built the privacy fence.
View from the house to the privacy fence.
The living room of our home and the same room transformed for a Christmas dinner party!
Looking from the family room to the heart of the home…the kitchen and eating area.
A view of our kitchen before the hardwood floors. And the table full for our Christmas breakfast 2015!
All decked out for our annual fourth of July party in the past and this shot for our 2015 party…
Our daughter, son-in-law, niece and nephew. Our niece and nephew were visiting from Texas with their parents.
Our family of eight. The most treasured part of our home!
Later in the week I’ll link this post to Thoughts of Home on Thursday with Laura at Decor To Adore.
Thank you to Mrs. Nesbitt and her team and to Tom at The Backroads Traveller.
