Honey....We Need New Furniture...Pleeeasssse!

While looking for a client an accent table weeks ago I discovered the furniture of my dreams. I have a thing for roosters....it's actually an addiction I think. But this furniture screams French Country and I find myself dreaming about it quite often. The finishes are incredible and the fabrics are oh so yummy. I thought I would share it with you all and please...if you have the same feeling for it as I do, leave me a comment and I will gladly forward them to the husband. I also love the way they photograph these "high end" beauties outside...how clever, and it makes the appeal that much greater.

p.s. Someone left me a sweet comment that (before I could even see who it was from) I somehow deleted. They had come over from Magic Brush. Please introduce yourself again so that I can visit your blog as well.

The Stork Made a Big Mistake!

I think when the stork dropped me off he was lost! I should have been taken to a Tuscan hillside to live out my life waking everyday to the sweet smells of lavender. I harvested the first of the figs off of my tree yesterday and I have to say it was the best tasting thing I have ever put in my mouth. I took my youngest to a lavender field this week and we giggled and harvested lavender for an hour or so, imagining that we were in a field outside of Tuscany! (yes she shares my dream to live abroad someday) Then there is the whole Cotswold sheep endeavor, I am still working on my husband on that one, he has however agreed to help me start a lavender field of my own. I love my husband for his never ending support and for the fact that he loves me enough to help me chase my dreams. So here I sit in Oklahoma when I should be in Tuscany or Provence. All kidding aside, I love my life and wouldn't trade it for anything.....but a girl can dream!

So Clever!!!

I have had my eye on all of the great pillows and bags that are being made with burlap and I have to admit I have visited Ebay a few times to scout out the goods. Then I came across this website and fell in love. I have to say they win the award for "The Most Clever Use Of Burlap".
