SPRING AWAKENING

Well, looks like the hibernation is over. I do believe it is now spring after all, which means I have been cleaning the Casa and getting it ready for the spring. It is nice to be able to have the windows wide open. You may be shocked, but even at night currently I sleep with the windows half open. I'm extremely warm blooded. I turned off my heat mid March. So what's been going on at the Casa? It's time for renewal.

I always love spring...time for white denim jeans, shorts, nice colors, and lighter fabrics. Here's one of my famous pattern mix ups....a floral comber shirt and a pin strip blazer.

Since it's almost Friday, should we break into happy hour early????

It's fully stock with many gins....WHAT A SHOCK!

And don't even think of swiping a bottle.....Buster is on duty!!!

The apothecaries are ready for Easter.....

Hot Cross Buns anyone???? My grandmothers recipe.


Meanwhile in the living room, white cherry blossoms......

After the floral arranging, Buster was wiped out.

After last summers repainting, I finally got around to doing my gallery wall of art and family and friends, photographs.

I am finally used to the dark Newport Blue of the boudoir.....
All these clocks and I'm still fashionably late......
Buster's favorite sock monkey. It disappears all the time when he is here at his country house. But after that mini tour.....All Buster wants to know is when he can have a ice cold one too?

  1. So many fertile egg-shaped things in these photos. Especially the first one...

    PS We found "Ophir" gin a bit heavy on the palate to comfortably drink with tonic - more of a cock-a-tail ingredient than a "real" drink, methinks... Jx

    1. First off dear, my eyes are up here..... and your right about Ophir. Whilst I enjoy it, it is better with other ingredients. I do enjoy my Hendricks's and Blue Coat best....mind altering.

    2. Your eyes may be up there, dear, but you still only ever photograph your "box of goodies".

      I was on Martin Miller's gin tonight, which is simply delish...

    3. I must look for that! The gin, not my box of goodies! That has a mind of it's own.

      Cheers!

  24. Lovely pictures. Im so happy that spring is 'springing', Buster and the flowers make me happy! As does your picture!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Having fresh blooms in the home is a wonderful luxury (and makes such a difference) ... it's even better if the blooms come from your own garden! Nice and fresh pictures ;)) Especially the stem in the first one!

    ReplyDelete

  28. Your whole place is nice, bit I am loving the color of the bedroom. That Buster is very easily swayed if a recall to get to the bar. And your look....if threw me off. I only used to you in a square cut.

  29. One of our own blog followers, sweet Anne Marie in Philly, mentioned you when I posted about some apothecary jars and wondered what to do with them. She sent me the link to this post (love what you did with them) and of course now I'm lost in reading your blog. What an awesome place you have! You know how to make things look fabulous, including a pair of jeans. ;-)

    1. Oh Anne Marie...watch that one! She'll drink your gin dry! Thanks for stopping in and glad your liked them. I have done all sorts of thing to them. I try to change them seasonally. Christmas is my favorite. Glass balls look great in them. I also have a few not pictured, like a short chubby one and some real small ones. I am always switching things around.

  30. What a wonderful home I can remember my grandmother had those beaded eggs. They are very hard to find. What a treasure. I sure wouldn't mind some of your buns and coffee!

    ReplyDelete
  31. So inviting....all of it. I also love that little porcelain rabbit. Is that an antique? What I enjoy about your place is old and new mixed together. Happy weekend at last.

  32. As a fellow designer,all is can say is,Bravo!!!!! I really also enjoy the way your collage grouping on the wall. Interesting and great use of space.

  33. Beautiful home, artistically decorated and as much as I tried I just couldn't help myself. I really did try to keep my eyes from wandering below but they just wouldn't listen, if fact they talked my fingers into making the pic bigger, as if they really needed too.

Go ahead darling, tell me something fabulous!
