I don’t know about you dear readers, but I love a good picnic.
Picture a hot day in June. There is a haze in the air where the morning’s mist has burnt away. The sky is so blue it’s almost violet. Only the wispiest of clouds can be seen in the sky, morphing and changing from one shape to another; nature’s kaleidoscope.

I am a true romantic. I love the idea of love. Grand gestures, hearts, flowers, candlelight, the works.
Area rugs are such a beautiful accessory to place in ones home. They add warmth, they decorate a space, they diminish noise and they can complete a look. I think of rugs as artwork for the floor. Here are some tips on how to choose a rug.
I’m so over white walls.
Putty, Taupe, Greige, Ivory and don’t even mention Magnolia….
Christmas. Season of merriment, parties, lights, decorations, and that warm feeling of anticipation that something wonderful is about to happen.
