summer light

summer is waning.
and so is the light.

days are quieter.
and becoming shy.
 a bit more cozier.
inward.
soft.
and pensive.











summer is waning.
delight in all you can.

make the most of your weekend
my dear friends.

p.s.  all photos taken on my back deck one sunny summer day.
 after washing two bed canopies and hanging them from the arbor to dry in the sun....
i took advantage of the beautiful light, the perfect photo-op for some simple flowers, plucked into a humble vase, sitting on an old ladder.
i am all about capturing the luminous glow...
of light.
in my photos.
my art.
 my home.
my love and my life.

p.p.s.  i will be sharing some of my art with you very soon.
no really. i will.

Good morning, erin! YES, I agree that the Cornue stove in gray would be a splendid addition to your fabulous home, and to my French-inspired cottage! Oh could you imagine the super meals we could make in that oven?

I will be teaching middle AND high school French this year, and I am looking forward to igniting a love of learning in my students. Blessings my dear! Anita

A perfect photo op with the bed canopies. Hard to believe Summer is winding down. This year is passing by way to fast.
Hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend.

No one can do WHITE like you. Your home always looks so airy, clean and crisp. It is quite simply, stunning.
