French Country Cosy

Good morning Everyone!

What an absolutely gorgeous morning here in Charlottetown......we haven't had great weather this early in the year in years!

I've got to get out and enjoy some of this very rare sunshine and warmth.........

I hope you enjoy these beautiful images today......I fell in love with them when I discovered them.

Shades o' Green

Happy St. Patrick's day, everyone - have a wonderful weekend!

Once upon a time, a very green couple

Left their friends in the park

To head home through their garden

Where they were happily greeted by their beloved dogs!

Upon reaching their ivy covered house

They entered their cosy green living room

Where they were served green drinks -
After all, it was St. Patrick's Day!

Drinks were followed by a lovely, light lunch
All in green, of course!
Whereupon, lunch was followed by green velvet cake

Along with Irish Cream cupcakes

And green tea!

After lunch the lovely couple enjoyed some checkers
in their backyard checkerboard garden.

And then they spotted 'Ivy' - their faithful poodle patiently awaiting
the end of the it was time for all of them to
walk in the park!

Spring Green

It is the most beautiful day here in's hard to believe it's only March 12!  It feels more like late April and is beginning to green up.

So, I have green on my mind today.  And have had for the past few weeks.  I know Pantone has named Tangerine Tango as the color of the year, but everywhere I look, I am seeing green............particularly in the most recent issues of decorating magazines, including House Beautiful and Country Home.

You really have to check out the new issue of Country Home.......the green on the cover is absolutely luscious!  This first picture has the green wall I am referring to, but this image does not do it justice....if anyone knows what the color is, please let me know!
