A Beginning

A keeping room is a small place in the home just off the kitchen, a warm, inviting nook where one may settle in front of the fireplace and be alone or with a friend...a space in which to think and muse and reflect. Here is a corner of mine...the teapot is filled and wearing its cozy! Cup and saucer or a mug? Milk and sugar?

Thanks for your kind welcome and encouragement!
You are Number 1!

Congratulations! And welcome to the bloggyhood (although you've been a visitor for some time now)! Your blog is WON-derful, like I knew it would be. You know I'll be a regular at your cozy keeping room.

Thank you for stopping by! You are my inspiration. Yes I have been reading about six weeks now! And thanks to Life at Willow Manor, I am totally hooked! I did change the photo last night to one in my home. This is where we gather, read, and dine most evenings.
My original photo was from an inn in New England. I am currently "taking lessons" on all the fancy cameras that the guys have. This shot was made with my Blackberry.
