Winterscape With Lake

It would be nice to have a lake to look out upon I think. There would be great beauty here no matter what the season.

A Kitchen And A Bath


Lovely kitchen. Lovely tub. Each room is sleek, simple, uncluttered, and lastly elegant. The kitchen eating area looks as if it would be a simple DIY project with fantastic results.

House Love | Outside, Inside, and Up In A Tree




Delightful images of house love. Don't you admire the spiral staircase for the tree house? I like the blue glass backsplash in the kitchen. The arts and crafts cottage in the first photo is nice. The landscaping in the last photo is spectacular. Be back later, Rosemary.

Byzantine Floor Mosaic With Portrait

Fragment of a Floor Mosaic circa 500–550. The rod that she holds, the measuring tool for the Roman foot, identifies her as a personification of the abstract concept of "Ktisis," or Foundation. How suitable for a floor.

Goodnight Moon | Outside My Kitchen Window

Go outside and look at the moon. This is the night sky outside my kitchen window taken just a few minutes ago. It is very beautiful. Goodnight moon.

Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show #134

This Weimaraner named Sizzle is enjoying some well-deserved lap time. I guess you're never too big to be a lap dog. I love this breed. They all seem to be so comfortable in their own skin.

HMCraig Art | Thanks For The Mention

HMCraig Art: Rules to Live By (borrowed edition)

Thanks so much for the mention. This is the only way I could think of to contact this talented artist and blogger to thank her for mentioning me on her blog. I wanted to leave a comment but they aren't enabled and there is no email contact information. You need to fix this. Let me know if you need help. Thanks, Rosemary
PS...You should follow her.

Wonderful Antique Windows

Now that's what I call a window. I don't think I've ever seen a better one.

These interior windows are wonderful too.

Abandoned windows. I could never walk away from these, could you?

Curved window alcove with ice crystals on the glass. Nice shutters and fabulous carved millwork. I'd love to have some frozen windows to photograph today. These would be perfect.

I've always liked windows that opened awning style. Love the vines too.
Enjoy the last weekend in February.
