things that make me tic ...


 you all know that it's my faith, family and friends that makes my heart tic!

that pretty much goes without saying...but on the other hand, it

is important to say it, too! 

i LOVE you faith, family and friends!

i just want to share 

the little vignette baguette that's a the corner 

of our dining room now! 

Grandma's chair

Maria's  lavender  pillow

my favorite little basket with Grandma Hazel's hand crocheted cover.

a Rachel Ashwell curtain panel i found Goodwill hunting

a laundered burlap table runner et Andrea.

perfect French bread with

"fall back" and coffee!

one extra hour of sleep! i can feel it!

happy Sunday!

 and successfully installed them onto

 my replacement laptop.

time to talk turkey...

last year we hosted Thanksgiving.

my theme was "rendre grace"

this year, i am inspired by...

a print by Douglas Smith.
while i am not particularly fond of most of his images,
( i apologize, Mr. Smith)
i do enjoy the detail and charm of this rendering.
(it kind of reminds me of transfer ware)

since it is not our year to host the holiday,
 i can see myself applying a less traditional approach
around our city farm table.


chalkboard...white linen...saffron...silver...
with maybe just a touch a bay leaf

oooooh, i'm liking it!

just thinking and sharing out loud.

ahhhh, November.

i am so pleased to greet you once again!
