"When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul."
My heart is so heavy for the world that we are living in today... trials are at every turn... how can I be praying for you today?

We just painted the walls this week. Next up is trim paint and new carpet. See all of my plans on the blog... one post back. Follow along on my Instastories. Happy Weekend!!! www.elevengables.com
Simple, elegant, welcoming - there are so many words that describe our love for this picture chosen as our first Featured Account  for the #loveofcountryhouses hashtag!  When we started the hashtag from all over the world, one thing we were sure about is that everyone should feel that they are able to achieve the aesthetic. A #loveofcountryhouses Is not about grandness (although it can encompass that)  but about the warmth and beauty that comes with country life. A peep through a light filled, beamed hallway into a country kitchen, to see the comfy cat sat atop a stone floor and a jug full of tulips in the background - that speaks of country home to us! Congratulations to Hattie Hatfield @hattiehatfield and please go check out her feed for some of the most beautiful images of the country life aesthetic you can imagine. Thank you so much for your wonderful entries - the response has been phenomenal and the #loveofcountryhouses gallery an inspiration! Please do continue to post your images as we will be announcing another Featured Account to share on our feeds around the world next Friday.  Same rules apply - follow your hosts, @jennyroseinnes @oldsilvershed @elevengables @charlotte_annefidler @cynthia_weber_design @hillhousevintage  Post your image between now and Wednesday, and add the hashtag #loveofcountryhouses! Have a gorgeous day.

Cleanliness is next to godliness? Maybe not, but I sure do like a clean kitchen! My boys just finished cleaning up the kitchen and I'm snuggled on the sofa catching up on my missed hour of sleep. What are your feelings toward Daylight Savings Time? Love it or leave it?
