Words, Lovely Words

One of the things on my never-ending “To Do” list was to install some wall words. I had them at our historic home, the Court Street Retreat, and when we moved over a year ago, it is something I’ve wanted to add to our new “old” home. The word project finally got set in motion when my friend, Jill, a representative of the company Uppercase Living, offered to come over and help me git her done. I decided on the quotes I wanted for each of the rooms and then a couple of weeks ago, over vanilla lattes, Jill helped me measure and select fonts and sizes. The quotes arrived within a week of ordering and were ready for installation. My dear husband tackled them room by room during the past week and ta da! the words are now in their new home. Walk with me . . . .

Our bedroom words say: Today's beautiful moments are tomorrow's beautiful memories.

The kitchen words are in Italian and mean The Sweet Life.

Finally, our living room has a quote by Eleanor Roosevelt and is the same quote that we had at our other house in the living room/library. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. I truly believe that.
