A thing of beauty is a joy forever

“If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”

William Morris (British craftsman, designer and poet, whose designs generated the Arts and Crafts Movement in England. 1834-1896)

I took William Morris’ stricture to mind recently when looking for a new shower curtain. This is the result. Not only does it make the bathroom look great,(and it wasn’t more costly than most of the alternatives), it gives me pleasure every time I see it.

I hope you have things like this in your life. If so, take the time today to enjoy them. If not, keep your eyes and heart open for them.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
