There's a book that been much looked at and loved here, lately: How to Make Play Places & Secret Hidy Holes. Yes, imaginations have roused to life with all the cubbies, shelters, tents and cocoons one can make with cloth, cardboard and wood.
It must be the same interest in the sheltering feeling of small spaces that caused me to have Small Home Designs and Inside the Not-So-Big House laying on the floor next to my bed right now. Treasures. Including this, found on the fly-leaf of Small Home Designs, hand written by a knowing soul:
"Dedicated to those who don't want to build mansions."
And, seeing that the words are written in a classic grandma-perfect hand, most surely by one who had known the beauty of small in her life, I find myself agreeing most wholeheartedly, seeing how she obviously knows.
While thinking along these lines, I noticed that there is small, then there is the small within the small. Like the bed nook. Not a room, but a carved-out portion for the bed, linens, pillows, books, art, lamps, sleeping. So much with so little.
Keep looking and you'll see what I mean...
Are you nodding your head, too?
Have the lovelies of weekends, friends! This one is going to be sunny and 60's!
