More photos from the cottage + saved ones too . . .

This is Webster, my best friend. Everyone loves him!

A nice laundry room from a magazine.

You should try this on your next trip to Washington DC

I love prints + binder clips. What a great idea.

A study of several of my geranium leaves.

Vintage poster/great thought.

Such a beautiful bronze angel.

I was playing around with PhotoShop and did this layer. The leaf is one of my photos and the apple is an antique print.

I had pomegranate Greek yogurt for breakfast this morning. Yum.

Isn't this the perfect photo to kick off the fall season?

I got these figs earlier this summer from a farm stand nearby. They were grown in the man's back yard. They were soooo good.

I love this hand/finger shadow bunny.

Map wallpaper in a powder room. Nice!

If I had a shop, I'd definitely post this sign.

I slept late this morning and it was wonderful. It's cool and crisp. Very invigorating for some fun activities that are yet to be determined. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by the cottage. ♥Rosemary

Photographs gathered from here and there . . .

I photographed this graphic of William Shakespeare from the front of one of my favorite tee shirts. I actually have two and they are both threadbare. This will preserve the great image.

A wonderful gate leading to a great house.

Wonderful happiness quote.

Quote by Edvard Munch.

Such beautiful architecture! Sigh.

Great soaking tub.

I love the bench built around this cottage.

Portrait of an owl.

Word play with Scrabble.

So true!

I prefer to think he was just helping to open the DVD :-)

Thanks for stopping by the cottage for some photos, inspiration, quotes and humor. ♥Rosemary

These birds make such beautiful music . . .

Birds on the Wires from Jarbas Agnelli on Vimeo.

While reading a newspaper, the composer saw a picture of birds on the electric wires. He cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (using no Photoshop editing). Mr. Agnelli knew it wasn't the most original idea in the universe, he was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.

Thanks for stopping by the cottage to watch something that is both interesting and beautiful. ♥Rosemary
