Ellen's Ivy Part II

i am participating in "share a garden sunday" ...
last tuesday, i blogged about my designer, friend ellen's ivy on her front entrance... let's revisit her gorgeous home for more cutting edge ideas. she has ivy out back as well. this lusciousness is growing out of an old double washtub, and has climbed up and covered the bay window.



i love the cozy mood this has created inside. this idea is not for everyone ,but i can assure you ellen has exquisite taste and this really works here.




natural, green blinds, if you will.





and in her screened in patio, ellen keeps clipped ivy in this chandelier and often adds fresh flowers.







ellen you have a beautiful home and i sure appreciate you sharing it again!
