WHAT MAKES A WELCOMING HOME?

"The ingredients that go into a home that embraces and welcomes aren't obvious, and they aren't exactly the same for every home."

". . . such homes have certain qualities in common; understanding them can help us restore much of what's been mislaid in the scramble and tussle of modern life."

"Here are those key qualities."

HARMONY
CLEANLINESS
EFFICIENCY
SELF-RELIANCE
GENEROSITY
JOY



The above excerpt is from the book

COUNTRY LIVING
SIMPLE
COUNTRY
WISDOM

by Susan Waggoner

In the book, Susan goes on to explain and illustrate in detail each of those key qualities.

So far, I'm really enjoying the book. It's bringing back to mind the simple things that make YOUR house YOUR home.


Thanks for visiting!
