The magic of the red chairs…

The magic of the red chairs... by Keri Kettle

I made a short video for you about red chair magic and how to get a little red chair magic into your days.

I hashtag the pictures I take at the red chairs in our backyard #redchairmagic.

Sitting at the red chairs is the pause I give myself permission to take.

When my honey and I sit at the red chairs, we aren’t doing chores or working or getting any children from here to there, we are just chatting, sipping and looking out at the view.

The red chairs are a good place to share your daydreams.

My kids will sometimes come out to the red chairs, usually perching on the little table, talking to me about time travel and what their favorite bands are up to.

Friends come and sit with me at the red chairs to share a glass of wine, laugh and just be.

I want you to have a little red chair magic.  I’d love to have you come sit with me at the red chairs, or to find your own #redchairmagic in your corner of the world.

She stopped short in front of my car exclaiming, “You are the prettiest one I’ve seen since [...]

Where to find your treasure…

Where to find your treasure... by Keri Kettle

I love to purge.   I love to get rid of stuff that is piling up.  I love to take an over-stuffed drawer, dump it out, and sort it into what I love and what needs to go. About once every 3 months we schedule a pick-up from a local charity for outgrown clothes and [...]
