Zen Things & My First Gif

Really good advice. I need to work on my indoor cleaning skills. via

I made my first GIF that I really like. It was easy to put it on Instagram but I can't figure out how to put it on my blog. See it HERE. I cannot believe today is the last day of April. It went too fast.

Dark Green Shutters and Door

I have always liked this dark green that looks almost black but have never used it because it is so very popular in my area and I always wanted to be a little different. I like the high gloss paint because it sheds the water so nicely. via
Have a great weekend.

Foggy Morning with Rosemary

I woke up to a really foggy Friday morning. The rosemary plants didn't seem to mind. They are very happy to be outdoors again after a long winter inside.

Charming Service Door

The simple geometry of this charming service door at the David Peden house by Harrie T. Lindeberg is just one example of the work of this great architect of the 20th century. I love it. That's creeping fig climbing the walls, not recommended for a wooden structure but fine for brick. Found on Instagram

A Plant Table + A Great Bathroom Sink

This would be a great place to work on your plants and photograph them for the Internet. via

Just look at that sink! It's like a small bathtub and would be so handy in so many ways. It looks vintage and I'll bet it is. So Nice! via

Ferne Park House

Ferne House is a country house in the parish of Donhead St Andrew in Wiltshire, England. There has been a settlement on the site since 1225 AD. The current house, known as Ferne Park and the third to occupy the site, was designed by architect Quinlan Terry in 2001. The estate grounds straddle both Donhead St Andrew and Berwick St John parishes.
