"Never be in a hurry, do everything quietly and in a calm spirit.  Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset."
~St. Francis de Sales

"The pursuit, even of the best things, ought to be calm and tranquil."

Seawashed Sundays

to rest my soul in the quiet of the sea...

"You have come to the way of castles and cathedrals, of elegance and empire."
 ~Robert James Waller

I finally found a whitewashed French Seaside mirror to complete our vintage chest.  It is real wood, heavy, and adds a layer to our coastal style.   It rests in our cottage as if it was meant to be here all along.  Sometimes the pieces just find you.

Sea Tidings,

I have disabled comments again because it is, for me, a peaceful way to blog.  You can always email me or find me on Instagram.

Morning Dew

"Let the beauty we love,
be what we do."
~Persian Poet Rumi

"Beauty, sweet love, is like the morning dew, Whose short refresh upon tender green, Cheers for a time, but till the sun doth show And straight is gone, as it had never been." ~Samuel Daniel

Sea Tidings,

"Paradise was made for tender hearts" ~Voltaire

Seawashed Sundays

"The glories of earth, sea and sky
Thy pow'r and wisdom magnify;
The roseate dawn, the living breeze,
The flow'r decked fields, the surging seas,
All sing in wordless song to thee,
To whom exist all things that be."
Hymn from Magnificat

Summer Song

In Summer, the song sings itself. ~William Carlos Williams

When I saw you
I fell in love,
and you smiled
because you knew."
~William Shakespeare

The romance of my heart
on this Wedding Anniversary day. xx
