What a lovely pause to my crazy day. I could feel my tension leave with the soft music and beautiful photos.

Can you bottle this somehow?

Oh Erin...everytime I come here I feel a little gasp as I move from image to image. Remarkable.
I would never want to leave your lovely home either. I got such a kick seeing daisy's cute little pink paws.....reminds me of Nigella's with all that fur.
Love the soft blue walls in the bedroom too.

Hi! Check your blog daily and always disappointed when you don't have a new posting. This was a great day, as I felt like I was visiting your house with you. I love it that your house changes in some way whenever the inspiration moves you, wish I could (would!) be more like that. Such a comfortable place to visit! Love Ya!

You have such a lovely and welcoming blog. These pictures are calming and restful and all I want to do is brew a cup of tea and snuggle. Come stop on by sweetie for a slice of San Francisco!
