Thank you Gayle !

I came across this wonderful quote sent to me from Gayle Tweed. She has been a "kindred spirit" in regards to so many facets of my creative life. This is a quote from an old

book Lucretia Lombard , Warner books 1922. It fits into my soul in the corner that" loves old books"and reminds me why my heart is in England and old books and memories. It was a wonderful article Gayle thank you for thinking of me!

".........One felt, upon entering it, that life was established here, that things were valued for more than their market values, and placed and treasured thus for years, would still be so placed and treasured when other years had gone. There was no sense of temporary botching, nor of the choice and taste of decorators or experienced collectors. This was a home, and these dear familiar chairs and tables were what made home."

Now this is out in the world. Enjoy it and I hope it touches the soul of another!
