I love indoor/outdoor spaces and these are so lovely! I wonder if this would be comfortable…

I love to entertain and this would be a perfect spot for it. It’s absolutely breathtaking! People would need to be careful if they’re drinking though!

Everyone loves tree houses. I think they take us back to our childhood and make us feel young again!
I had found a kind of serenity, a new maturity…I didn’t feel better or stronger than anyone else but it seemed no longer important whether everyone loved me or not–more important now was for me to love them. Feeling that way turns your whole life around; living becomes the act of giving.” ~Beverly Sills
“The serenity of mind, gentleness, silence, self-restraint, and the purity of mind are called the austerity of thought.” ~Bhagavad Gita

I’ve just begun discovering my tastes in art during the past six years. My role as a full-time working mother in the years past didn’t leave time for me.
I’m drawn to pieces that are bold, either in color or composition. And to trees! I’m thankful I have the time and interest to explore it now!

I’ve always loved clothes. Probably because I am tall and slender and most things look good on me. In the last few years, I’ve been buying more sporty type clothing, for travel. Items that wick, are light-weight, dry fast, have SPF, etc. It’s still fun to look occasionally…
“It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules.” ~Alexander McQueen
“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” ~Audrey Hepburn
I used to think fashion was a waste of time. But now I realize it is just another form of art.
This colorful sweater appeals to the whimsical side of me!

I love whimsy! Who wouldn’t want to bath here? Usually I’m a shower kinda girl though!
Looks like a weird mushroom to me….a very beautiful one!
What a cute apartment. I really like small spaces! Nice and cozy!
How creative! Singapore designers completed an office interior for an advertising agency that features a drawing of the company’s founder spread across the walls and floor.
Located in Mumbai, these residential condos are way cool! I’m ready for summer!
This is an office. You could have a picnic for lunch!
I stepped onto my deck this morning and captured these photos of the light snowfall. When I initially looked out the window, the dusky light caught my eye and I thought–”Wow, I need to take a picture”!
I find myself doing that more often…everywhere I look…I’ll see a photograph! I know most of you can relate–those of you who like to take photographs. When you compare these photos with the next few–you realize how blue the light was. I find that really interesting.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. ~Marcel Proust~
The rest of these photos were also taken in my backyard or side yard. The last one was obviously in the Autumn and you’ll notice my doggie–Jake–in that one!
When it’s over, I want to say: All my life I was a bride married to amazement.” ~Mary Oliver~
