Gee, What a great place!
To live in or to run a guest house.
I would love it here...

Story on the makeover of this old barn on homelife 
Daniel and Glenny’s guesthouse barn, Red Brick Barn, is in Chewton, Victoria.

Raspberry Romance















After seeing the picture of this bathroom (most top),
I suddenly became so involved with the colour raspberry.
This has been hiding somewhere outside my life - 
never knew it could be love at first sight like this.

Red was just a red. Like told before, 
I'm not much of a colour person. Then - it hit me:
I really like this. I might have even fallen in love with it.
There's always time for a little romance...

Lights, More Lights







It's the TIME of the year. 
Natural light is escaping more day by day -  
so light up your garden, patio, every little dark corner around your home. 

Before putting out the official Christmas lights - 
which is supposed to be done no earlier than the 1st advent
I use all the little lanterns and hang them in trees and bushes,
with Christmas lights inside - so they shine like lamps.

Not to mention the real candles!



Here are some more ideas for garden lightning, on Pinterest.

Light in your life,
 Bette .

Healthy Snack



Rosemary Roasted Almonds


Oh, two of my favourites: almonds and rosemary.
This sounds like a plan for the weekend!


"Fresh rosemary gives wonderful fragrance and flavor 

to this roasted almond recipe, 
and chili powder provides just the right amount of spiciness. 
Serve to party guests or as an everyday snack."

    Ingredients 
    1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary 
    1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 
    1 teaspoon chile powder 
    3/4 teaspoon kosher salt 
    Dash of ground red pepper 
    1 (10-ounce) bag whole almonds (about 2 cups)

  • Preparation 
    1. Preheat oven to 325°. (162 °C) 
    2. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl; toss to coat. 
    3. Arrange nut mixture in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil. 
    4. Bake at 325° for 20 minutes or until lightly toasted. 
    5. Cool to room temperature.

Colonial-Era Cottage










 

There's old, and then there's old

At their 18th-century Connecticut home, Julie and Tom Murphy embraced 

imperfect original details—and a spare decorating approach to enhance them.

This is nicely American style and makes me want to travel to Connecticut now,
where - I am sure - it is so pretty in autum now.
