Happy Summer


Happy Fairy Day!


Wishing you a day full of enchantment...

"Many people don't believe in faeries, but if you look real close they're always there." Torlila



To open your heart to the fairies, you must nurture these feelings of wonder, reverence and love for every detail of your garden, for the airs which blow about it, the musical rain which falls gently upon it, the moon and the stars which silently look down on it, the great sun which is the source of its being and for the clouds and changing skies which provide it with a canopy. When you truly feel the sweetness of this magic, you will begin to discover the fairies, for they will make themselves know to you. ~

Yellow the color of Hope


I adore pink, I adore aqua and find red to be enchanting. But the color that has been a long time friend the color that speaks to my heart is the color of golden yellow…
When I first started my blog one of the first things I posted about was my collection of yellow, cream and butterscotch button that I store and display in an old cream pitcher. This is one of my favorite vignettes in my home.



(picture from the net)
It is a sunflower that makes me smile and an antique yellow
Ware bowl that will make me run to its owner booth at the local flea market.








As I was looking for decorating idea for the cottage I plan to own someday, I came upon Morris and co. fabric and wallpaper and knew instantly that this is where I could live, this is what I could live with…





Another picture for my someday cottage portfolio.. Picture form
Cottage Living..



I would love this too, desk from Maine Cottage.







some yellow gold in my home..


My chandelier is a hand made copy of an antique French bell chandelier ..





some yellow shopping:




Yellow Roses indicate joy, gladness, friendship and "I Care"

I just love the ribbon work from here:

This song was also one of my favorite songs as a teenager...

I will also be catching up with everyone, I hurt my arm and find it hard to be on the

computer for more than 5 min. at a time...that mouse is killing me....
