Front Porch Pondering

I'm also pondering how I can incorporate these gorgeous black and white curtains to my front porch.

Choices Choices

More pictures that are inspiring me to change my backyard landscaping.
We just got an estimate from a contractor.
I can't decide if I want to make an outside living area or move to Europe for a few months... ooo the choices in life.

Arm Candy

I'm thinking this is my next purse.


Two things I'm dreaming of today:

1. Planting window boxes
2. Riding around on a camouflage Vespa.

These are pics from my trip to London.

Spring Gardening

The weather has been beautiful, so I have been redesigning my front yard landscaping. It is going to look so lovely when I am done with it. But I caught the flu from my husband so I have been out of commission since Monday. I will post some pictures of my garden when I'm back and running.

Locally grown

I am now 100% devoted to organic foods. I was watching 60 minutes tonight and they had an interview with Alice Waters. She owns a restaurant called Chez Panisse in Berkley, California and has become the mother of slow foods. During the interview Alice brings us into her kitchen to show us how to make scrumptious recipes from organic locally produced foods. Her kitchen is beautiful and very old world. Now, should I plant strawberries or lavender first?

I'm thinking chinese sounds good, as long as my meal is topped off with this splendid little fortune cookie.

It's a rather cold day in the neighborhood and my heart is longing for sun.

Straw hats

These are images from India Hicks beach home courtesy of Absolutely beautiful things.
I adore the rows and rows of straw hats lined along her walls.
Which reminded me of my straw hat I recently purchased.
I may have to start my own collection now.

Doesn't she just make you smile.


I love everything about Maria Bonita Extra.

The sweet desires of pink and ruffles.

Spring like

It's beginning to look a lot like Spring.
I'm torn between going to the Philbrook Museum or working in my garden.

Ghost town

I came home today completely wiped out, so what is a girl and her husband to do?
Grab all the food in sight, hit the bed and flip on On Demand.
This movie was so delightful and refreshing. Not to mention the soundtrack was amazing.

Check out these songs from the movie.

I'm Looking Through You - Beatles
I'm Still in Love (W/ You) - Dusty Wright
Sabre Dance - Aram Khachaturian
Theme from Rawhide - Dimitri Tiomkin and Ned Washington
What I'm Looking For - Brendan Benson
Sideways - Citizen Cope
Which Way Your Heart Will Go - Mason Jennings
String Quartet Op. 1 No. 6 in C, 4th Movement - Franz Joseph Haydn
Please Be Patient With Me - Wilco
The Heart of Life - John Mayer

I promise you won't be disappointed.
