Dwell- to make one's home.

My newest One Of A Kind Subway Sign painting on canvas with one word...Dwell.
Available in my etsy shop Seawashed.
And look what my daughter brought home for me from the produce stand on the side of a country road...a grey pumpkin!  This is what I have been wanting and haven't been able to find anywhere.  It's perfect for Sea Cottage. 
"One thing I dwell in the house of the Lord..." Psalm 27:4
"He who dwells in the secret place..." Psalm 91
I am reading Gift From The Sea and O how the words speak to me...
"One becomes, in fact, like the element on which one lies, flattened by the sea;  bare, open, empty as the beach." ~Anne Morrow Lindbergh

  1. it is always lovely to have a post of yours appear in my reader, it is like a cool tide washing on to shore.

  2. THIS IS FANTASTIC. Oh, to dwell in the right place, the right frame of mind. AND THAT GRAY PUMPKIN, how perfect is THAT?????

    Enjoy this gray day that I have here today; gray days make me happy because it means you can slow down, sit down and read or dream. Enjoy sweet friend. Anita

  3. What a perfectly *you* pumpkin that is Kerrie! I didn't even know grey pumpkins existed! Your "Dwell" sign is lovely:)

    I've been reading "A Gift from the Sea" also, I love it!!! I plan on buying more of her books:)

  4. lovely, peaceful post. Your pumpkin IS perfect. Love the verses!

  5. Your pumpkin might very well be a Queensland Blue Kerrie, in which case it is heresy not to eat it (in November!). Maybe save the seeds too - I did with the one precious QB I found but planted a little late...

    Time honoured way to cook is is roasted: just cut into chunks, a little olive oil and salt and (I am salivating).

  6. Oh Kerrie how absolutely precious of your daughter to think of you and bring this beautiful grey pumpkin home to you!
    I've never seen or heard of a grey one.
    Your "Dwell" painting is lovely...and the Word and where he takes us ...just beautiful.
    Hugs and much love to you dear friend.
    You are close in thought and heart.

  7. Love your "Dwell" and your fabulous fat gray pumpkin!


  8. That is so interesting, Kerrie...I was pondering the word Dwell a week or two ago and it put me in mind of a video I had watched years ago called The Dwelling Place.

    It is about a young woman in the North of England who saves her family after their parents die by creating a home in a cave on the moors. The movie has some harshness to it, but I valued seeing it again. It is a Catherine Cookson story.

    You certainly know the art of making a home...xo

  9. Gift From The Sea is one of my most favorite books. I reread it every summer at the beach. The beauty of the book is that it speaks to so many different stages of a woman's life and makes you feel hopeful that you'll live through the present difficult stage and onto the next. A brilliant book!

  10. I always enjoy the thoughts and quotes that you share. Your blogs always make me feel so peaceful.

  11. So lovely...

    Love the Psalms, love the kitchen at top.

    Sorry I've been "away" for a while ~ life has been busy ~ our oldest dear daughter married, my sweet husband has been sick, work is busy & I'm looking into FINALLY opening my store. My plate has been full.

    I needed the peace your offered today.

    Blessings from Ohio...
