Bridal ℰ Beyond


Different and I like it. 
It doesn't have to be a princess look every time, 
especially if it ain't your first rodeo :) 

Ok, here's your crown.

Renovated Texas Cottage








When Paige Hull and her contractor husband, Smoot, 
renovated their Round Top, Texas, home, 
they got even more than they'd bargained for
- namely, a vacation rental and a budding antiques business.

I like their way of using old stuff and still making the whole atmosphere very fresh and "young".

☂ Rainy Day Dreaming ... Nice Nantucket


"These days we're dreaming of biking to the beach, 
walking past light houses, 
and filling our vases with fresh hydrangea from the garden."



I guess not.
Summer decided to take a vacation.
Left me in the rain and cold...

So, I'm leaving to Nantucket
In my dreams.  

Why?
National Geographic names Nantucket the best island in the world.

Made A Wish



"I saw a star slide down the sky, 
Blinding the north as it went by,
Too burning and too quick to hold,
Too lovely to be bought or sold,
Good only to make wishes on
And then forever to be gone."

- Sara Teasdale, 1884 - 1933
American poet

Lilacs Are In Bloom



"Blown hair is sweet, brown hair over the mouth blown,
Lilac and brown hair;" 

-  T.S. Eliot 




I don't know a scent that reminds me more of my childhood than lilacs.
We used to have so many lilac trees surrounding our house.
They were a promise of a coming summer. 
The beautiful, warm, careless childhood summer. 

This is the best time of the year.  

♥ ♥ 


 Now that lilacs are in bloom
She has a bowl of lilacs in her room 
And twists one in her fingers while she talks. 

"Ah, my friend, you do not know, you do not know 
What life is, you who hold it in your hands"; 
(slowly twisting the lilac stalks) 
"You let it flow from you, you let it flow, 
And youth is cruel, and has no remorse 
And smiles at situations which it cannot see." 

I smile, of course, 
And go on drinking tea. 

-  T.S. Eliot

Morning After


This was basically my Sunday - 

 - after attending more than a healthy number of graduation parties yesterday :)
 I'm sure somebody slipped a hangover in my drink last night!

The best thing about being middle aged is that you don't have to do this very often. 

But champagne was at its best: cold and free!
I had my share, definitely. 



Happy new week,

Bette
