. house love * creative space .

how quickly friday came... a day filled with work and
meetings and a million other things.
as a creative type... i am always compelled by other people's
work spaces.  while mine is usually in a state of utter chaos!

she has joined the many designers who have designed lines at
affordable prices for chain stores, which i myself think is genius!
but without further ado...
{in stores now - online soon (under $200)!!!}

. bon voyage * mount rushmore .

packing my lovely things in this...

soaking up the scenery here...

while being chauffeured in this...

carrying my gold here...

while wearing this...

and these...

while enjoying this marvel...

just daydreaming a mid-week vacation. doesn't
riding in luxury to a humble and beautiful
piece of history sound divine?
i think so...

. yum yum * corn salad .

well...just maybe spring is getting here.  looking out my back door at my herbs getting green and i can hardly wait to use them.  a favorite is basil...just can't get enough of it.  we are going to make corn salad today, and it would be better if i had some fresh basil and dill weed.  my neighbor,and i made a few items and took them to another neighbors house with our husbands to enjoy together.  ever just had an array of finger food and drinks on a friday night to end a looooong week?  we had a wonderful time. this recipe is from my neighbor who is like the sister i don't have.  we have a delightful time together.

Corn Salad

ranch dressing (made up from dry packet)
1 c mayonnaise

in a bowl mix:   
1 can drained corn
1 cucumber (peeled and diced)                               
3-4 tomatoes diced
1/2 to 3/4 c red onion

pour on as much of the dressing that you like over your corn mixture in bowl, stir and let set to mingle flavors. add fresh dill weed or basil as you like. this can be a salad or an appetizer, use scoop chip and you have a wonderful dip.

hope you enjoy this light and flavorful recipe!

until next week... Bon Appetit


. house love * authentic .

i am over the moon for the living room

dining area is casual and fabulous...
(adore the patina-ish wall)

kitchen is quite lovely

a tranquil place to end the day...

as i have told you i am crazy about color right now...but i have always had a love affair with white and this manhattan (looks like it should be in europe) apartment belonging to thea beasley is beyond fabulous.  featured in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles it is quite striking and is completely authentic...


. furniture * bedroom sofa .

i think so...

. house love * yellow .

have i mentioned that i am obsessed with color right now? and i am smitten with
these sun drenched yellow silk drapes... come to think of it, my master bedroom
at my country home has been yellow for years... hmmmm maybe i've always
been a bit obsessed with yellow.

hello my lovelies...i hope you have had a more
fruitful week than myself.  my computer and i,
have both been under the weather.  while my pc

hangs above our bed and is quite enchanting.
hope you have delightful weekend plans....
