Hi. Have I told you my little sister will be married next week in Maine?
I know there will be love and happiness...and lace, lobsters and hydrangea. We'll be at the shore. She'll be married in a lovely old stone church. My whole family will be there of course, and we are so happy for her and her marvelous future husband. We leave Sunday for the week, and I'm very excited!

On My Run

Happy new week to you. I took a photo of some aspens I passed while running the other day...
It's so hot and dry here, but so pretty. Despite the lack of moisture, it's a good summer so far! I hope the same for you.

Beautiful Weekend: Loving These

by Milton Avery...
I love the depth of color and the way he "strips the design to the essentials" (Avery's words). Our strip down to the essentials (declutter day) went well, thanks, but we're not looking at all minimalist just yet! Some day. I hope you have a beautiful, colorful, uncluttered weekend.

DeClutter Day

Happy Monday, everyone. Our summer is in full swing and we're having so much fun. The outdoors is calling this week too, but Eddie is in camp so it's time to get things done. To that end, I'm so excited that Thursday is our next declutter day! As always, I'm gathering images of spare, beautiful spaces to inspire me...

Hopefully, the humble abode will look a lot like these by the end of the day Thursday (HA!!!). To see my previous declutter day inspirations, search 'declutter day' way up there on the right. I hope you have a great week!

Happy Weekend

I hope it's just like this!
Do you love this photo by Sofia, from her gorgeous blog Mokkasin, as much as I do? It defines summer and it's perfect. I hope you have such a happy weekend. And thank you for visiting me this week. Back soon.

1st Dibs This Week

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week. It flew by here, but I spent a wee bit of time browsing 1st Dibs. I found a few pieces I'd love to take home (surprise!)...

A handsome group I think. Find them on 1st Dibs: sweet set of bird paintings, i'm a sucker for weathervanes, settee, desk, desk lamp, and PK-9 chairs.

I love camping. These first pics are not mine, but I've been staring at them longingly since we arrived home and packed away our gear...
And that's how our trip felt to me. Those photos capture it. Plus a few of mine...
It's apparent that I love the idea of sitting by the fire with warm things to drink and eat. Eddie and Doug whittled and I watched. We had s'mores of course and played by the river. They rode bikes. It was simple and great.
I came home from our this little trip in the best mood, wanting to go right out again. We will do it again in less than two weeks and I am planning already. Can't wait.

Inspired by Susann Larsson's Garden

Happy Thursday to you! Susann Larsson's garden is perfect, I think...
Don't you agree? Susann's blog Purple Area is always beautiful and has been on my blogroll for a long time. Her garden posts are some of my favorites. Please go visit if you don't already. Inspired by these photos, I will be working in my garden some more today. I have so much to learn and to do, but I'm trying. I hope you're having a great week!

The Past Few Weeks

I mentioned earlier that May was full, and I thought I'd post a few photos from our happy month...
We're starting our summer with a bang. I hope it continues to be this fun! Pics are: a view by the river, the arrival of my little sister's wedding invitation (!), the VW show in Denver, guest bedroom at my twin's home, beaded bug at DIA, Mt. Bierstadt from Guanella Pass, the Twister (we rode it!) and soft serve wearing mom's sunglasses at Elitch Gardens.
I hope you love the rest of your weekend.
Instagrams by me.
