Elizabeth Barrett Browning, How do I Love Thee…

The Honey Trees:To Be With You

Sonnets from the Portuguese 43:

How Do I Love Thee?

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, — I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! — and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

~Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861)

”A woman’s always younger than a man
At equal years.”

Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861), British poet. Aurora Leigh, bk. 2 (1857). An explanation follows: … because she is disallowed Maturing by the outdoor sun and air, And kept in long-clothes past the age to walk.

I Like Birds

Tap your foot to this song while you enjoy a little bird love from Feather & Nest. We named our business metaphorically… today we’re taking it literally. We’re putting a little bird love into your day, starting with a song from The Big Year; a fun film starring Owen Wilson, Jack Black and Steve Martin.

Just a little sip

Become so wrapped up in something that you forget to be afraid.

-Lady Bird Johnson

Stand by Me

Head over hills for this band! We think you will be hooked with just one listen….

music by, The Ultimate Bearhug: Stand by Me (as written by Ben E. King)


When life moves one of us to an island, what do we do? After crying in our soup we make lemonade and perhaps there’s a few additives included…of the “fermented sort”. We also blog….yep, we’ve become blog-hers. We miss styling interiors together and working on remodels, (we just plain miss each other) so this felt like a natural way to stay connected and be creative…and here we are several months later…still finding our place in the ‘Lifestyle’ blog-world. We want to thank you for standing by us. We love bringing you music, ideas, poetry, quotes, photos….some unique and some reblogged, all to tell a story and hopefully weave a bit of whimsy and creative respite into your beautifully, busy worlds.

Friends stand by you. photographed by Jamie (Feather & Nest) E and the awesome Buick kids.

I love you, Trulli.

Alberobello, Italy
via design combo

In Pugli, Italy, lies the small town of Alberobello. Its enchanting structures, the trulli, represent a remarkable glimpse into prehistoric architecture. Tradition has it that the structures were designed to be dismantled rapidly; a technique to avoid the tax man. With no mortar, the homes could be reconstructed as easily as they could be taken down, allowing the settlers ease in residency. The charming village remains today, beckoning all who want to be transported to a magical destination.

It’s hard to believe such a place exists. Magical Alberobello!
