happy easter!

Wishing you a Happy Easter and a glorious spring day!

Yesterday the twig was brown and bare;
To-day the glint of green is there;
Tomorrow will be leaflets spare;
I know no thing so wondrous fair,
No miracle so strangely rare.
I wonder what will next be there!
~ L.H. Bailey

Wishing you and yours a very Happy Valentine’s Day!

A man had given all other bliss,
And all his worldly worth for this,
To waste his whole heart in one kiss
Upon her perfect lips.
~Alfred, Lord Tennyson

happy thanksgiving!

For each new morning with its light,

For rest and shelter of the night,

For health and food, for love and friends,

For everything Thy goodness sends.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought you might enjoy a post dedicated to beautiful dining rooms…

I adore the relaxed refinement of a humble burlap table cloth mixing with fine china and silver…or the inventive tablescapes featuring purple artichokes and sculptural gourds to reflect the beauty and bounty of the season…too many brilliant ideas to mention! Please enjoy!
