By a new book, that is. I haven’t read through an entire book in quite some time now. I just wasn’t feeling like I had the time and other things were taking precedence. But now, oh my, now with all of my kids off in school I picked up a book and read. A lot!
It’s by the incredibly talented writer Edith Schaeffer. It’s called The Hidden Art of Homemaking: Ideas for Creating Beauty in Everyday Life.
Mrs. Schaeffer’s writing is so inspiring to me. She sees the world in a way different than most and yet not overly complex that when she describes things the rest of us can’t picture what she’s saying and agree.
I love this book. I’ll put quotes up soon.
The following photo is one I took before one of my recent photo sessions. It’s beautifully frustrating to me because no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t get all of the various lines straight. One of them had to be angled which at first annoyed me. But now I like it. God knew I needed some unstraight lines that day!
