Sunday Black and White - Life in an Old House

 What is a day like in a hundred-year-old home with no television?

It's soft light through the windows as all is quiet.
It's books, so many books.
 It's seeing your life reflected in those things that surround you.

It's the sound of music of generations ago.
It's board games played while bread bakes in the oven and the dog slumbers nearby.

 It's antique lace, and things few know how to make any more.
It's things from the ground and the garden collected to be beauty or nourishment.

It's the sounds from a shop, things being repaired or built
 to make the home stronger.
It's soft laughter and amber liquid, there in that quiet house
 where you will soon lay your head.

    Gorgeous Sunday saunter through a HOME... embracing and warm. YAM xx

  2. And the candles danced on the ceiling
    to the sound of their laughter, for there is love
    in the 100 year old house.
    May your Sundays be filled with all that is good.

  3. Sometimes I can see those hundred year old houses reflected in my patients. Alzheimers takes away whatever was new and relebent8 pi>

  5. Sounds like a lovely existence. Bonus points for not experiencing the commercials-life is so much better without temptations to buy things one doesn't need or can't afford.
