frayed nerves averted

with easy access to warmth

my secret is unveiled


My sitting room holds a secret, if you have been following my blog for a while you might know what it is as I have mentioned it before and the Haiku gives you a clue.

I will reveal the secret tomorrow. Although then, as Rainbow J says, it will no longer be a secret … except to those who come to the house for the first time.

  5. I’ve been a bit behind in my reading, so saw the answer before this post! A grand secret, indeed, would not have figured it out. Love this secret! 😉

    • You did Denis, well done. I saw the idea in a house about 25 years ago and did not have an opportunity to recreate it until now. I just love the ease and simplicity of it. Thank you for the link.


  13. I would guess it is a wood burning stove like Nanacathy.
