i wish!

i needed a lift, and this site makes me feel good even tho i can’t read a work of it. from denmark,

franske stemminger (photog) via min lilla veranda

what are those beauties?!

ahhhh simplicity…

over in a parallel universe (blogspot that is), i’m trying to figure out google adsense (i can’t put anything on this blog, so blogger’s my guinea pig). i added some google accessories to trick it out and of course worked on the ads. it’s not ready yet but it took till 3am to get even that far!

i chose marie antoinette cause she’s my most searched keyword. how do people find you?


you can even add uTube to your site and get referrals from clicks. just saying, since we all love to blog! or maybe you’re already an expert and can share some war stories?

well happy friday everyone! my friend liz just rented a little house near me so some friends are going over in the candle light to toast to it…and her for doing it :)

p.s. Silk Stockings with Cyd Charrise, (who passed away recently), is on tonite. i’ve never seen it!

    Someone had this picture as their header photo for awhile and I instantly decided it epitomized the perfect kitchen for me. I think it’s just stunning.
    Enjoy your evening out. I on the other hand will be struggling with the eternal paperwork.

    Yes those are turnips..that ladies name is Marie. I’ve asked/begged her a few times if she would blog in English too. No response..but I’ve heard that Swedish people can speak English..oh well.

  9. Kate replied:

    Love these images. Reminds me of paging through my mom’s decorating books when I was little. I need to get back to that now – definitely letting potty training, etc. overshadow my grownup interests….

  10. Melissa @ The Inspired Room replied:

    Wow, those are some beautiful images!!

    Happy day!

    Thanks for the website address. I find that pictures like that, that speak to you through the design, rarely need words that you can understand to back them up. Your heart understands ..and that is what counts!!!

    I love all of the pictures, but the first one is my fav :) I WISH TOO!!!!
