Majorcan House, Once a Station

(Free translation from

Destination to happiness: The house was a station.

It was an old railway town and today, 50 years later, it is a romantic holiday 
full of history pieces. A wonderful travel destination to happiness.
A Majorcan house flooded clarity and calmness. 

 "Until 1964 it was the train station Ses Salines, 50 kilometers from Palma. 
When they removed the line, my husband's grandfather, who was the owner, sold. 
We always wanted it to be our's and the opportunity came three years ago 
when we knew it was back on sale. No doubt." 

"Luckily the old station still has several items left, with a great evocative power, 
but perhaps what attracts me is the amazing light that it has. 
Painted walls and high ceilings in white, this light flooded in every corner. 
We seek a decorative style between Provence and romantic, 
with clear and natural tones, pickled wood and patterned fabrics. 
When we finished, we liked the work so much that we were about to move to live here, 
but eventually returned to the initial idea of ​​rent as a tourist home."

I would LOOOOVE to rent this.
One day...

For you, there'll be no more crying.
For you, the sun will be shining.
And I feel that when I'm with you,
It's alright, I know it's right.

To you, I'll give the world.
To you, I'll never be cold.
'Cause I feel that when I'm with you,
It's alright, I know it's right.

And the songbirds are singing, like they know the score.
And I love you, I love you, I love you, like never before.

And I wish you all the love in the world.
But most of all, I wish it from myself.

And the songbirds keep singing, like they know the score
And I love you, I love you, I love you
Like never before, like never before, like never before.

Summer Wine

The weather hasn't been all that nice this summer.
But today, the sun is shining... oh well, every tenth minute.
The rest of the time it's behind the clouds.
But never the same, it's still there.

I will pour myself a glass of white wine,
add a strawberry in it, 
sit on my deckchair,
and listen to this song.
And hey, I feel like summer!

Today I Liked

Found this on Lonny:

"Aerin Lauder shows us how to do the Hamptons in style
with a straw hat, straw tote, and straw-seated car.
The peonies don't hurt, either."

Just lovely.

Trying to walk back, slowly.
Now,  there is more light.
