Go to your corner!

I love Sunday mornings. I don't know what it is about them but I always feel such a calm and quiet within when I awake...maybe it's the sound of silence in the air on the farm.. sleeping in, no school runs, no work.  It's one of my favorite days. But for some reason I do more cleaning on Sundays then any other day go figure. How about you? Do you have a quiet place?


 I created my quiet corner using old fabrics, soft cozy pillows..I put my antique Italian prayer bench from Italy at the foot of the daybed.  This is my space where I come to read, close my eyes and pray, have a cup of tea and  cozy up with my favorite furry friends..Ellie and Jerry. So take a seat and  relax today it's Sunday morning I say!
I love my dreamy sheep skin throw.I got it last year from Santa....I sort of hoard them around here..it's Florida every girl needs a furry throw!
vintage linen table cloth with fringe I used a a bed skirt.
all pillows  are handmade.
My very special pillow..I was born on Staten Island and  my family is from there it is a small Island off of Manhattan so you can say I am really an Island girl!
when I get sleepy my corner starts to look like this...blurry.
I saved the best for last my Jerry..well Dante calls him Skunk. this is his quiet corner he was a little under the weather in this picture but is fine now..Ellie is hiding somewhere in her corner.
I hope you have a special place to get some inner calm and peace..lord knows we all need a quiet little corner.
Thanks for visiting. xo Laura
