Friday Fun...

(I may have an unnatural love for the colour green...:-)

Hi there...feeling much, much lighter today...The sun is shining, and dare I say, playful? Uh,huh. This morning seemed perfect for a little wander around the house with my camera...:-)

(I love this old tin.)

(The photograph is my mother-in-law, and her mom...a family treasure. The etiquette book from 1953 I picked up at a garage sale in's a great read if you need some laughs.)

(This vintage Coke add always reminds me of Jon and I when we started out...)

(Starfish make me smile...)

(Old stove on the back deck.)

(...and I had to share this awesome entertainment center that Jon built. The doors are windows that we salvaged from our house when we built the addition. It's my favorite thing that he's built yet.)

Sooo...feel free to pop in for tea. I'll even clear the laundry off my table for you...:-)

Happy weekend!

Oh, Celeste, what a lovely home you have! Thank you for opening your door to us. And I'm jealous that you have such a handy and creative husband! I wish my better half could construct something like that!

My neighbor - the lovely, lovely Katie - says that whenever she buys new clothes & brings them home to show her better half, he just nods and says yes, they're green. We laugh about this all the time. But they are always beautiful - green is just happy-making. As is your home. I totally get the starfish!

I would love a cuppa tea ;-)
Fun to have a stroll about your place and you look great in green!

I'll have white tea with orange blossom flavor, please, in my delicate china mug from Harrod's that I've treasured for almost ten years. And I'll say such nice things to your hubby for building that lovely entertainment center. Good hubby!

I love these photos!! Especially the starfish!

Years ago when I was in college I painted my final thesis all about that gorgeous green color. Imagine 8 feet by 5 feet sized canvases just soaked and dripping in different shades of that green--put in a room side by side--so that the viewer can just soak in the experience of that green---like diving into a sea of green.


Thanks for the tour of your sweet home.

Peace & Love.
