My feelings exactly!

English cottage

"I had rather be shut up in a very modest cottage with my books, my family and a few old friends, dining on simple bacon, and letting the world roll on as it liked, than to occupy the most splendid post, which any human power can give"
~Thomas Jefferson


  1. Nice quote - sounds like you! The new header looks like one of your fairy gardens!

  2. I like your re-decorating. I love to play with my blog, it is like another tiny room to play in. And I would love to live in that "modest" cottage with the great roof and all the beautiful flowers. And books...gotta have lots of books!

  3. Oh Sandra the new look is lovely :) As for the cottage what a lovely picture!! & Place to Live.That would be so lovely as a blog banner :)

  4. Love the new look! And I love the quote! It's so me! Hope you all are feeling better and have a wonderful Friday!

  5. Did you know that Thomas Jefferson & John Adams died on the same day which was on July 4th 1826.....the anniversary of the signing of the Dec. of Independence.....50 years to the date of a matter of fact! How cool is that?! Cant help but think God really loved those men. Oh & I learned that from watching the HBO series "John Adams". This was a great series that left me & Danny balling at the end! Well, actually several times inbetween!
