A Treasure for CM’ers

I’ve just discovered a lovely Charlotte Mason-inspired blog

All Things Bright and Beautiful

, a mother of 11, grandma to three, keeps a country household and teaches her precious children


“Friends have sometimes said to me, I’d love to do picture study and classical music and poetry with my children, but I just never find the time.  If you find yourself in this position and would like to share these things with your children but just don’t know where to begin or don’t have the time to prepare, or maybe you’d just like a little culture in your life but don’t have time to pursue it on your own this blog is a gift for you.

I enjoy sharing classical music, art and poetry with my children and wanted to invite others to share the wonder and beauty of what we are discovering together. 

I hope to post regularly – hopefully weekly so you can use these in your home school if you would like.  We will look at one artist’s work for a few weeks in a row and one composer’s work and a poet in that way, also.”

Her selections are truly beautiful and inspiring.

Here’s an example from this week’s post ~

Picture Study

Joseph Farquaharson’s “A Winter’s Morning”
