His Name is Buick

This is my love....

and his name is Buick~

is the name the pet shop gave him~
Noel decided not to change it.
Each kitten in the litter
was named after a car....
Buick had two sisters,
one named Mercedes
one named Lexus~
His brother was Ford~
loves to be a part of
anything new that comes in
the house.
He especially was fond of this
vintage zebra prop
made of wood
covered in dyed zebra print~
He was sad when it sold...
I love my little boy!

Where is Home?

When I first met my husband,
he told me Home to him
is where ever I am.
Nothing has ever meant
more to me....
I knew then, how much
he loved me.
He never even had to say
"I love you"~

I believe
Home holds our souls.

Home is where beauty, comfort

function all unite as one....

I believe Home is
where our hearts sing....
and sometimes this may
be somewhere far far away...
with someone very very special~
Where do you think
Home is?

There is something about
the balance of contrast
that I have always

Black & White
is my constant favorite.

Even if it is white on white
placed on black...

Or if it is still another
amazing image
Corey took for her
guessing game over at

I adore,
this vintage Chanel wedding
window display
in Paris~

I found
the contrast of old & new
is in this photo I took
of a Dior window in Paris...
An old broken
beaded chandelier
not hanging leans next to the
new white dress forms~

This favorite statue of mine


the contast of a rough old white

stone texture that was once smooth~

This is my collection
of white glazed
Astier de Villatte
pottery placed in an
old dark Welsh Cupboard
that was given to me from
my Mom~

Have a very special week
my most beautifuls~

Good-Bye Summer

I am saying
this weekend~
I love the changing of seasons...
Good-Bye long lazy golden
Hello Autumn!
I welcome you with open arms
in brisk morning air~
Do you realize
our lives are like seasons,
forever changing...
as we walk through the chapters
of life?
Doors closing, doors opening
as time goes by....
Have the BEST last
weekend of Summer
EVER my darling ones!!
