Abandoned Cottage. Restorable? Absolutely!

Stone Cottage
"abandoned places. stones warmed by the sun. nature run amuck on the structures left behind. the mystery of things unattended."

I'd love to be teleported to this very spot right now. Have a great weekend, Rosemary

Reclaimed Chair with Suburban Upholstery


Suburban Chair
Fabric designed with a pattern based on a map of suburbia and used to upholster a reclaimed chair. I like it, how about you?

May Is National Bike Month

Check to see what events are going on in your town. Most are sponsoring a Bike To Work Week May 17-21. What a great idea. I love the red rims on this bicycle, don't you?

Loving Cup, Flowers, Books, and Antiques

I love this image since I collect antique sterling silver engraved presentation trophies and antiquarian books. It's lovely, isn't? Right now the only flowers I have blooming in great quantities are buttercups. I wonder how they would look in a loving cup? Certainly not as beautiful as these white roses.

I'll be back later. Busy day head. Enjoy your Friday whatever you do.
xo, Rosemary

Day Is Done, Goodnight

This cat has the right idea. Take a nap whenever you can. I'm going to call it a day too. See you in the morning.

This organization provides Green transportation solutions for employers, commuters, and the community. It's in Princeton, New Jersey so the Einstein quote is most fitting for a biking event.

The Real Fantastic Mr. Fox

Have you seen the movie Fantastic Mr. Fox? It's a wonderful animated film based on the book by Ronald Dahl. He called the story a fantasy adventure for children but it's certainly one adults can enjoy as well. I watched the DVD recently and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

An urbane fox cannot resist returning to his farm raiding ways and then must help his community survive the farmers' retaliation. George Clooney plays Mr. Fox and Meryl Streep provides the voice for Mrs. Fox.

Should I Trade My Cottage For This One?







It isn't often that I see something that I like better than my own cottage. Dare I even go and look? It's not very far away. I wish photos of the bedrooms were posted. Oh dear. Let me know if you have any interest. We could see it together and then flip a coin.

Peony The Size Of A Luncheon Plate

I photographed this huge peony at a friend's house this morning. It's spectacular, isn't it? I've started carrying my tiny point and shoot camera in my purse for capturing moments like this.

I used my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 with a Leica lens.
My camera is 4 years old but quite adequate with a mere 6MP. That's all you need. The prices have really dropped since I bought mine.
More current models are available.
