No Place Like Home # 11

Welcome friends to another No Place Like Home

The beauty of the home is order;
The blessing of the home is contentment;
The glory of the home is hospitality;
The crown of the home is godliness. ~ Author unknown

The other day I shared with you some changes I made in my living room decor. The addition of a favourite colour has me feeling more at home with the room. Aqua is indeed right up there with pink and green as favourite colours of mine.

I had purchased new drapery panels and had new pillows made. I have a little more tweaking to do but you get the idea.  

I also enjoyed a cup of tea in my vintage teacup, Veronica, which was a shower gift from my mother when I got married. Notice the aqua blue roses!

Sweet with play and calm with sleep. 
Help us so that we may give 
Beauty to the lives we live. 
Let Thy love and let Thy grace 
Shine upon our dwelling place. - Edgar A. Guest
