Worth waiting for! ❤


Well hello stranger! What a beautiful post...and how lovely your new nest is.
I wore my 'Angel Heart' necklace recently and wondered how you were. I've really missed your musings!xo


oh it feel so good to hear your voice and see through your eyes once again


Such a lovely, bittersweet, deeply moving post. You have lifted my flattened heart, allowed me to look into my world more closely as my one hundred pound puppy seeks my hand...again. :)


How wonderful to read your lovely words once again, dear Nina. I hope that the new year brings you much joy and contentment. And many delicious cups of tea!
xo, Karen

Hi Nina,

Just found your blog...really did enjoy today's post. I too live in North Carolina and was raised in Wilkes County surrounded by mountains. I hope never to stray too far away from my beloved mountains.

I noticed the sweet little verse at the bottom of the bird embroidery. What can you tell me about this beautiful piece of needlework? Did you design it? Is it available as a pattern?

I surely do hope to come back time and time again to see what you are up to.

Reading your written words are always a treat. Soothing to me and my heart.


Hellooooooo! So very glad to see you!

Beautiful words and photos as always. Hope you're back to sharing them more often.
Maybe this means you'll be share a teaching schedule soon??


You have been missed, dear Nina. I actually did a google search last evening, fearful that you had moved your blog and I didn't know it. So glad you stopped in to say hello.



Wow. I stop by here every day hoping to see a post, and today was the payoff! So glad to read what you've been up to and look at the photos and know that all is well. Thanks for the update!

A quiet gift to find this post this quiet morning...thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences lately. They are so universal, and yet, uniquely yours.

If you don't mind two questions, Nina, I would love to try my hand at embroidery, hoping it will fill the hole that I feel since knitting just hasn't worked out for me. Do you have a favorite book or way to begin? And the tablecloth with words all over it? Is it handmade or available somewhere, I wonder...


Happy New Year. So nice to see this while having coffee. As always your words resonate and glow as does your art. Even when you write once in a blue moon it is always a treat. Thank you
Your new home is beautiful. I know how you feel about Firefly Rd...I miss my old home in Athens. It will take time. Sending love and thanks

Patti Parks

I also look forward to your blog to read your words! I have missed you! This new creation is so wonderful & I love the idea of a piece of a book close to my heart when wearing it. Wishing you a very Happy 2014! The red embroidery is lovely! Take care...


I'm so glad you came and did a long post. I've given up on so many favorite bloggers now that instagram has taken over! I tried to do IG, I did, but it is not for me. I would rather come read a beautiful, heartfelt post (which I know takes time). I appreciate it so much Nina! Beautiful as always, and much loved by me : )


Love having you back, sharing your beautiful family togetherness for Thanksgiving. Such a great tablecloth, and all the stitchery is awesome. So happy seeing gorgeous Walter looking back at me........he just gets better looking with age - woof dear doggie friend!

Wonderful to see your sweet mama and know she was able to travel home with you. Love the house decorated for Christmas - the mantel so beautiful!

Dearest Nina, please don't leave us for so long next time - we do worry you know!
Hugs - Mary


So glad you came back for a visit. Now I have some great reading to fill up my tank.

You never fail to deliver the goodness when you return.

I enjoy your pictures, ornaments and thoughts.
