Well..... this Mistress had a glorious week back at the Casa du Borghese. Finally getting caught up with things, houseboys cracked back in shape, blogging, a few days at the Raven pool, cooking, and time spent just relaxing. With exception of brunch Saturday, this was the first weekend your Mistress got to enjoy myself since probably sometime in May... and it was most welcomed. As summer is winding down so are things at the Casa. Some of my summer touches will soon be leaving. How's bout that tank top above??? How perfect for me right? A gift from my good friend Bobby Eyeshadow....that crazy bitch.
Even the country mouse Buster looks depressed summer will end soon.
Some of my seashells find over the years......
On rainy days this week, I enjoyed some Waiting for God shows. That show never ceases to crack me up.
In the kitchen, my apothecary jars were also filled with seashells.
In the bar..... we have more shells, and a sea coral and my very own English phone booth Daddy Warbucks brought back when he was in London. The little door even opens.
As you can see, the Mistress is well stock in hooch and especially gin! After all, there's always time for a cock-a-tail.
Even at night worry not finding your way to the bar.....the arrow points the way!
My friend the Engineer made it over to add a shelf to my small island to hold my cookery collection of pots and other items.
Who says birdcages are just for birds?
Upon getting home...the most welcomed site......where all the magic happens! It was so nice to get back in my own king size!
I found this white compote at a antique market for only $30.00. It looks huge in person...couldn't pass it up. In a pinch, I'll bet it holds a great bottomless gin and tonic.
And one morning I saw this fellow peeping in the windows. After some research I found out it is a Grosbeak. Very pretty indeed.
Soon, I guess I'll have to break out the fall finery.
