Cool White Room for Summer

It is going to be at least 91 degrees at my house today. Just looking at this room all decked out in white with the Robin's Egg Blue door makes me feel cool. I'll probably have to look at it numerous times today.

Summer Outing and A Great Tile Mosaic

Doesn't this look like the perfect outing for the first days of summer?

I love this tile mosaic. It's a great design isn't it?

The Most Wonderful Illustrated Book

I really would love to own this beautiful book. I've always been interested in images of from The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. I think this is probably The Kelmscott Chaucer. I had a fine reproduction copy once and have always been sorry I sold it. Image via flickr

Vogue Cover May 1931

I like this Vogue cover illustration of a woman reading a book. I'm not reading anything at the moment and I miss being involved in a story. Have a great day, Rosemary.

Antique Tilt Top Tea Table

I had amazing luck at an estate sale just around the corner this past weekend. On the second day, somewhat late in the day I spotted and bought this early 19th century tilt-top tea table with a square top and cut corners. Doesn't it look perfect between my two early armchairs? Luckily I had already negotiated a better price before I started looking at it more closely, flipping up the top, turning it over to examine the base, vase-turned shaft, snake feet, etc. because there suddenly appeared in the wings a lady asking for second right of refusal. Poor table, rejected for a whole day and a half before being discovered by me to be loved again. Webster (behind chair) loves it too. My friend Jill gave me the flowers she arranged so beautifully right from her garden. I even had a small square black plate to put under her urn in case it leaks. The roses are shedding their petals but everything else is still going strong.
