Morning Sunlight

Hello to all my blogland buddies!
I missed you bunches!!!
This will be something of a short post as Blogger won't let me publish any more pictures until I increase my pic stash or something like that. For those of you wo are familiar with my computer talents, or lack thereof, this may take a while:).
We are still unpacking so it may be a bit longer before I can visit all of you but I will be by for a visit as soon as possible!
I love you all and thank you for your wonderful comments and support as we move into Faith Cottage!
Sorry I can't get any more pictures posted right now but here are some early morning pics at Faith Cottage:).
The morning sunlight streams through the bedroom curtains.
An old Eastlake mirror reflects sunbeams as they peek through the front door windows.
Silver sparkles in the early morning sunrays.
Crystals shine like diamonds as the sun streams through lace panels.
Shadows glimmer against antique lace.
Even a small bear (this little lady was handmade by Catherine at Bumpkin Bears:) enjoys the early morning light.
But it's not just the bear enjoying it,
Kramer is determined to catch the sun rays!
Or maybe he'll just enjoy the birds singing outside the window.
Until something inside catches his attention!
Of course most cats prefer...
to nap in the sun:).
Calvin prefers to pose for pictures while...
Kasey snoozes on the floor.
Lizzy watches for any sign of movement just beyond the front door.
This flying pig picture now hangs in our media room but used to hang in the infamous bathroom (see the bathtub diaries for more on that subject).
It is a reminder from my dad (you all know him as 'Michael823' from his comments on my blog) to not take life too seriously:).
I'm gonna miss you dad.

What beautiful photos; I can't wait to see more of Faith Cottage.
I love the picture of Kramer in the sunlight.
I'm also so sorry to hear about the loss of your father...he was born the same year as my mom, I see (1946). I hope you find many ways to keep your spirits up during this time of affliction.

Loosing our fathers is never easy no matter how old we are. You have my prayers for easier understanding......

Hi Kim,

So sorry to hear of the passing of your Father, sending my sincere condolences to you and your family.
May you find comfort in the happy memories you had.
Love the photos of your home, good luck with getting things organised.
Takes a while, getting it just the way you want, doesn't it.

Kramer looks so content at Faith Cottage.

I meant also to say that I understand about missing your dad. My dad passed away on Fathers Day. He was ready to go home, but it was still so very hard to say goodbye. You have my sympathy.

I am so sorry to hear about your dad's passing. I do remember seeing his posts to you. I bet he was really happy for you when you bought Faith Cottage. It seems the joyful and the sorrowful moments often go hand-in-hand.


Sandra said...

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. He once left a comment on my blog and it made my day. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear, dear Kim!

What a lovely visit here! You have certainly created your Victorian parlor here, so cozy and filled with the things and people that you love. Thank you for coming to visit and seeing that little white cottage, a place I dream of making! Our building project will be underway in just weeks and so we are ready to kick up the dust and begin our adventure!

How are you? I had a hard time getting into your blog from your comment, but I was able to find you on Google.

Enjoy your week dearest! Anita

Krsmer!!!!!! Hi there buddy-ohfriend-olepal!!!!! It's so good to see you again!!!! Mind if I stop by? We could nap together and catch up on our adventures! Maybe we could invent a new box game?!?! Or we could chase the dogs around the house....let me know and I'll be there!



Romeo said...


These are beautiful images you've captured!!! I'd like to think of the sunbeams as your Dad's love shining in on you....I am so very sorry to hear about your Dad. They are special people and I know you will miss him. Sending you hugs.

Hi, it's wonderful to have you back in bloggerville! I loved the pics, so romantic! I especially love the photos of Kramer and the pups.

I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your dear Father. I lost my Dad when he was in his 60's and I was just 30 y/o. My heart breaks for you.
I know that he must have been so proud and thrilled to see you realize your dream when you bought and moved into Faith Cottage. Remember that you will carry him forever in your heart!
Please tell your Mother how deeply sorry I am for her loss also.
Love and hugs,
