~Happy Monday, Corners of My Home


The light often dances so playfully on the fireplace in the family room, although this is the room which gets the least light. Maybe that's why I notice how amazing the light is when it caresses the curves and carvings.

We built this fireplace when we added the den/family room. I've always loved it, but much more so since I've added the tumbled marble mosaic tiles. It wasn't too tough, we had tiled before. Hubby cuts whatever I need, I figure it out and do the dirty work. We are a great team. Mostly because he is so kind and easy going. And he loves do work on things with me.

Maybe we notice light more when it shines where there is a lack of light. I wonder about this in the world today. But I continue to hope that more light shines stronger and brighter, and that we nurture and notice the light and not the darkness.

Happy Monday to all who travel through. Thank you for stopping by.

  1. Thank you for the lovely look at a corner of your home.

    I agree with your wish that more light will shine, in this world.

    And I add my wish.. that more will join us in our appreciation of the beauties of THIS world. Instead of always keeping their eyes on the next.
