Chit Chat.........

The latest

I like buying pretty new dish towels and hanging them on the oven door handle.  They are cheap, and make great decoration for the kitchen.  I leave then there until I grow tired of seeing them, then I take them off and throw them in the wash. After washing them I will use them and buy new ones too hang. The kids all know not to use the towels hanging on Meme's oven door :)     

Dresser in my bedroom.  I have to be careful are it becomes a catch all.  The little basket holds all my meds . I'm going to replace the lamp , as I use it for reading and this one just isn't big enough. I gotta see to read!

Have any of you ever read The Mitford series by Jan Karon?
 I just finished book one of the series. At Home in Mitford.

At Home in Mitford by Jan Karon, is a delightful novel that details the life of Father Tim, the rector of Lord's Chapel in Mitford, North Carolina. Father Tim questions his calling and his ability to lead the parishioners at Lord's Chapel. The town of Mitford and the characters that live there enhance the priest's life throughout the year, bring him great joy and happiness.

Now, I'm looking for number two "A Light in the Window" . I had never read any of this author's books before, and it took me a bit to get interested in this one, but overall  I enjoyed reading it very much.

I am also making a few little quaint changes around the cottage,I'll be sharing that soon. So what are you up too this week ,my friend?  I hope something fun and pleasant,........ Blessings

You sound happy Shelley. I haven't read a book in so long I can't remember. Lots of magazines though.

I love new tea towels! How did you teach the children not to use those? I wish I could teach my Mister! LoL

I own about half the Mitford series. I have read them all. Loved them! The one you need to look for, to read at Christmas time, is "Shepherd's Abiding". I read that one every Christmas! I hope you find the second book, soon. I need to start searching for the rest of the series, so I can read them all, again and again!

Grace & Peace.

Mrs. G said...

Oh Shelley! I found those books really cheap. Some even with free shipping.

I went ahead and ordered all three of the ones I am missing and my total was only $13! I am doing the happy my mind! LoL

Grace & Peace.

Shelley, I have an old vanity with a three part mirror, too! And I do the same thing with dish towels! I must say my vanity is a serious catch all! I know what you mean!
