Little Things

Home again. . . .

Amid the comfort of quiet rooms. . . .

Where really not much changes.

"Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart."

--Winnie The Pooh

I needed one of my favorite cloths to cover the table.

And a little change up in the wicker planter. Something simple.

The latest transferware. A covered tureen. . . .

With a platter to match.

 (The baby's breath was fresh when we left, but dries beautifully in the vase.)

So summery!

So nice to return to the rows and stacks of one's own order. . . . (or disorder, for that matter!)

Rediscovering the gorgeousness of gleaming silver with expanses of white. . . .

Home, sweet home. . . .

So much more ahead, but enjoying a little catch up with you as July sails by!

Happy days!



  1. Home Sweet Home. Love Pooh's quote and all the summery white.

  2. White on white is so beautiful. I can see why it would be so nice to return to this space. I'd be returning all the time.

    What a nice injection of peace and tranquility on this busy (for me) day.

  3. July is definitely sailing by! Welcome home, Jacqueline. Like you, I miss our home when we are gone, even for a short visit.

  4. It's always great to get home again...especially when home is as lovely as yours!

  5. You have me enthralled with that line, "the comfort of quiet rooms." It is like a snippet of poetry.

  6. I love that saying by our sweet Winnie the Pooh, and I'm drooling over your gorgeous room! Your pieces are beautiful ... creates such a warm, fresh and inviting space. The silver popping against it all is the icing on the cake!

  7. Good Morning, Love that Winnie the Pooh saying. Happy home again to you and being among your treasures. Lovely photos and peace and calm. I had to smile as I have the a small tureen like your transferware but in a candy dish size and the framed gift wrap from JdA. They both are a favorite.
    Wishing you a nice day. cm

  8. Absolutely beautiful! Wonderful post!
    I enjoy your blog so much.

  9. Hi J,
    Such pretty Pictures!!!
    Love the Pooh quote :-)
    and that gleaming silver has me looking for the polish, beautiful!
    I had to smile at your creamer of pens, I have an almost identical one on my desk, three cheers for orderly disorder!!!
    Hugs from me :-)

  10. when my little boy Charles was 4 we drove by our Catholic church late in the evening when the lights were glowing out the doors and windows...he asked me if it was heaven.

    That's the first thing I thought of when I saw your entire room...this must be what heaven looks like!

    just so beautiful and peaceful!

  11. Bringing up Winnie the Pooh brought my childhood back, was my favorite. Beautiful and peaceful photos as always


  12. How true! The littles things that matter most.... Love the Pooh quote,
    And Jacqueline I could stay here all day dreaming and desiring your little things.

    Beauty and grace all month long

  24. I love your attention to detail, Jacqueline, which makes your home so charming and warm and cozy! Sometimes I think I get too caught up in the little things, but then to me, that's what makes a house a home.

    It's always good to get away in the summer, but home looks so good again when we're back!
