A Simple Little House

"I like a simple little house

With flowers by the door,

An ample larder for my needs
And not much more in store.

I like a window toward the sun
And doors that open wide,

The trickle of a bath for birds
With feathered friends beside.

I like a tidy nook inside
Where my books and slippers lie,

A cup for tea, a magazine,

A warming hearth nearby.

I like some trinkets on the sills,
White ruffles at the panes,

The comfort of a sturdy roof
To shelter me from rains.

I like the cozy ambiance,
A place of sweet retreat

Where life unfolds along the way
And each new day's a treat!"

~Virginia Borman Grimmer

Sweet Kelli, at There Is No Place Like Home, shared this poem and pictures of her cozy home on Monday, with an invitation for others to do the same. Thank you Kelli! I love this poem and enjoyed putting pictures of my "simple little house" with it! :-)

Please leave me a comment, and let me know, if you share the poem on your blog, too!

I just loved this post!! I told Kelli I thought this was one of my favorite posts she's ever done! Your home is so warm and cozy and it fits the poem so beautifully. BTW, I made your beef stew recipe. My family just loved it and so it's definitely a "keeper!"
