French Bread on Friday . . . “moi et toi” !

Good morning most beautiful ¬†b e a u t i f u l s ! Gosh. How long has it been since I have served up a little French bread? This image had me at “moi et toi” . . . then I looked a little closer . . . that china. La Mer Veille….

O√Ļ est le printemps? O√Ļ est le soleil?

Hello Beautifuls! How are you? The image above was my absolute favorite find while tumbling on my new iPhone on our way home from British Columbia a couple of weeks ago. It sparked an idea, which I will share in the future as I plan to makeover a room in our home which will double…

Taking stock . . .

Hello beautifuls! It’s the first real “sunny and clear” morning of Spring 2017 in the Pacific Northwest of America. A day when you open the blinds and the word “unbelievable” fills your mind. I am easing myself back into blogging. (I may have fallen out of blog love for a while.) A limping laptop. Guilt…

Just one pic . . .

In my thirties, I had the coolest white overalls from a company in San Francisco called “Esprit de Corp.”. ¬†I wore them and patched them into almost shreds. Ahhh wordplay!

Just One Pic!

When I began blogging . . . seven years ago . . . I posted a little feature now and then called ” Just One Pic”. I still love to “play it“. About the same time Kevin Systrom, with Mike Krieger . . . a couple of Stanford guys, must have had a similar idea….

“Remove the weight from your wings!”

34 and I are slowly but surely transitioning into a lighter, more sensible arrangement. To keep myself motivated, I found this simple quote from Erin’s book, Chasing Slow, helpful. It’s presently in my daily mantra and prayer mix. “Remove the weight from your wings.” The one thing I have learned for certain . . ….

Saturday Shelfie! {A Play Flower Shop Day!}

Hellooooooooooooooo Beautifuls! Mr D. just poured me a cup of coffee.¬† We are up beyond early. It’s 3:58am as I begin. The shelfie image¬†¬†(above)¬†is from 2013.¬†¬†¬†The¬†floral¬†scene, featured¬†by Gardenista, calls for “off on the wall” fun. “Let’s all just play florist today and leave our computers home!” What threw me back to 2013, was this post¬†,…

Revenir à . . . French bread on Friday . . .

Bonjour beautifuls! I am feeling a little frilly silly “poetic” today . . . ( Some days¬†words just want to play. ) I have a little obsession with printed ribbon. Particularly ribbon with French words. Wrapped in finger – figure – eights¬† by me . . . for a purpose . . . what¬†shall be?…
