thank you for all your prayers and good wishes for melinda.
the word inspiration gets thrown around blogs a lot. she truly is an inspiration to me.
i am in awe of her grace and serenity
thank you all again.
i have a lot on my mind right now. like i'm thinking of going gray. i'm not fooling anyone with coloring my hair, so why bother? and i also wanted you to know that i still have not seen the hangover 2 but i did see midnight in paris instead and LOVED it. i am no longer running in the morning but have returned to my long, fast walk and prefer that. i never did eat cheese that weekend that i thought i would. also, i'm thinking that the gardener's cottage has run its course. next month it will be 2 and lets face it, you've seen every square inch of this place and there really isn't anything else to share here. there are so many beautiful blogs out there that do a much better job at interiors, cooking and gardening. i have started another blog that is a pared-down version of this one. but i have not decided what to do with it yet.
i'll keep you posted.
i swear this was a crisp outfit when i put it on but by the end of yesterday this is what it looked like.
this is a double rl white shirt that is on loan from alex. some women borrow their daughters clothing but i borrow my sons. plus an old gap khaki skirt with some red tennis shoes.
look what came in the mail yesterday. i cried when i opened it. it is the beautiful sketch that patricia van essche drew of my house. she matted it in black and now i need to find an old bamboo frame for it.
thank you patricia - you are amazing.
a shot of the living room with the toile drapes.
and the bedroom with the white drapes that were in the living room.
i've had this linen duvet cover from pottery barn for years and have never used it before this.
be gentle this weekend.
you never know what people are really going through.
