Gallery Wall Over A Low Bookcase

I love the black wall for all the artwork and the low bookcases in white paint and topped with interesting things. via

Fence with Horizontal Slats

I like this fence.
The Adirondack chairs too.
Fencing is on my mind since the picket fence around my air conditioning unit is in need of repair. It's on the north side of my cottage and never gets any sun and the pine boards are rotting. I have replaced numerous pickets over the years and this year I am planning on having my house painted and the fence repaired. Article and more fence pics here.

So sweet!
They are so tiny.


A Castle in The Cloud

I made this illustrated quote with a photograph of a beautiful sky over my cottage and added the text using one of my photo editing apps. This was posted on my blog long ago (2010) but it deserves to be seen again. I am thoroughly enjoying a cool, lazy, Sunday morning with rain. xo

Beautiful Bathroom in Every Way

Here we go again with beautiful wallpaper in a fabulous bathroom. I love it all from the cafe curtains to the large mirrored wall. I wish I could see the rest of the room to see the storage area for all the things we usually hide in under-sink cabinetry. Who knew plumbing could be lovely? I love all the polished nickel silver fixtures. via

My Hula Hoop is Back in Action

I haven't used my weighted Hula Hoop in several years. There was an episode about them on The Drew Barrymore Show recently so I went up to the loft over my garage to get mine out of storage. Now I love it all over again and have gotten up to 400+ revolutions before I make a mistake. It was like riding a bicycle. I hadn't forgotten how! I have looked and looked online and I think this is the one I have.

This is an old photo from a 2012 post when Webster (2002-2016😪) was afraid to come into the kitchen to get the dog biscuit on the floor opposite the threshold. That saddle divides the wide pumpkin pine boards in my kitchen from the narrow maple flooring in my living room.
