Light from the Windows!
This is my favorite Thomas Kinkade painting! (Aside from this one David gave me as a wedding gift!) Anyway, what I love is the light shining through the windows! I have always imagined myself in the house just to the lower right corner - cooking a yummy soup and homemade bread to warm those who come in from the cool rain outside. I love the inviting look that the glowing windows provide.
As I continue reading Simpler Times, there is a chapter called The Warmth from the Windows. What is it about light shining through windows that is so inviting?! I took this photo the other night from our front porch looking in through the front door and tall skinny window next to the front door.
I love softly glowing lights - and dusk is a favorite time because the lights seem even warmer! To me, these glowing lights say home, welcome, peace, coziness and love. Anyone else like me? What is inviting to you?
