La Vie en Rose

The last of the summer roses are here ~ 
I love how they surround corners of my home ~ if there were no deer on the hillside to enjoy them as their own dinner!! I would have them everywhere in the garden. Tucked safely on the deck, I relish their beauty, their scent and their perfect colors.


I will miss the lavender and the roses as we roll into the fall... but one thing is for sure, they will be back!

Official launch of my blog today, September 10th, 2011. I am excited...

Vision collage boards,  rolls of hand-made textured art papers, anything in Indian hot pink... simply my favorite color; collected Chinoiserie from years past, and a painting by my father on the easel...

Simply put, my bedroom replenishes me...


A little translation from the collage boards
I am the force ~ open the window ~ the intimacy of zen ~ life is beautiful, isn't it? 
~ Calm ~

The quiet of this room always brings me right back to ....NOW!
I hope you have a room where you replenish...
It's good for the soul.

My love affair with the iPhone Instagram application ~ square format, moody choices, dreamy looks...comfort.

This set was taken just last month along the California coast, near Muir Beach and at the ever so British pub, the Pelican Inn. The fog gave the afternoon an amazing glow.

Summer is drawing to a close... 
soon no more lazy afternoons with sand wedged between toes. 

Where were you this summer? Somewhere good for the soul I hope...
