Thought for Thursday

Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.
William Morris

We have a house full of sick kids at the moment and as a result we had an unexpected day at home. I took the chance to apply this rule to our living room and have a jolly good Toss and Tidy. There is plenty more to do in the rest of the house but at least the space where we gather and relax is looking and feeling nicer. As my good friend Louise always says, "Good comes out of bad!"

I hope you have somewhere beautiful to sit and enjoy your night.


  1. Hope all the little buttons get well soon.

  2. Not sure now if small sick children or large sick children is worse..! Worst of all is sick Mum as well (I am being such a grumbly sick person that I'm driving MYSELF crazy!) Well done you for finding that good from bad...hmm, what can I find... Hope they are all feeling much better and that you have a chance to enjoy that nice clear space you've made.

  3. I really like this William Morris quote. Thanks for sharing.
