A Few Twigs :: A Few Flowers

Twig Power.
Flower Power.

Never underestimate them ... . . especially in subtle creamy rooms.
I've long been a fan of the rather old fashioned tradition of room decor
which changes with the seasons. Call in the linen slips / toss out velvet.

In the heat of summer, I seek a very different environment than the
one which comforts me as I curl up by a winter fire.


I'm ready for my summer leap .. . . to that spareness punctuated by
a vase of twigs or simple white lillies. My reality was a weekend of snow.
No french doors thrown open to bring in the bird songs and vibrant green
of the lawn. An evening fire crackling in the fireplace is always a treat ...
but, I'm just ready to move on!

Patience was never my greatest virtue.


These photos serve a dual purpose . . . they allow me to rush my season
a bit by remembering past springs and past sprigs & twigs ... . . and
they allow me to fulfill the request of Miss Cote de Texas " to show us
more pics of your house!"


Yes, mam.
More to come .. .. .

Love changing decor with the season. Have you been to the Gallier House in New Orleans? I love how they cover everything in summer - and netting over the chandeliers. I lit a fire on Sat. night yet had spring flowers on the terrace and it stayed light longer, so was very odd to see the fire, bright light, and pansys!
A lovely peek at your home...just beautiful!

Really nice atmospheres indeed!

Funny I was just looking at twigs today (since all the branches are bare in Toronto) and wondering if I could do something with them in my art....
Your photos are lovely.

My apologies for not responding to your Kind / Witty / Thoughtful comments sooner - I'm afraid I've been a bit under the weather .
