How are you my loves? I've had a nice weekend. After what threatened to be a brooding, overcast weekend, we had the pleasure of waking up to a sunlit Sunday......it was lovely to walk in the sunlight and take in the many full-in-bloom trees that appeared to have materialized overnight! It never fails to amaze me, how the trees just seem to disappear, meld into non-entities when they're shorn of their leaves. They're there, just not visible....it's a long winter. Sometimes while driving down a familiar street on my many errands, I find myself suddenly distracted, "was that tree there?" (don't worry, I drive safe, and slow, so no crazy accidents or anything!). So yeah, I had a nice weekend, one that allowed me to breathe in the wonder of changing seasons, appreciate this lovely planet we live on.
I also had time to go through some lovely home tours on Apartment Therapy, something I haven't been able to do in a while. This picture made me really happy...
I just loved the unapologetic (and stylish!) blend of grown-up and kid spaces in this home tour. I loved how lived-in the whole space was. And that's the whole point isn't it? What is the use of a perfectly styled, high-gloss mansion that looks like a hotel lobby? A home should be a home, where soccer balls and muddy feet and pails-of-water-to-fill-water-guns can run free (okay, I'll admit it does drive me a little batty, but that's what I have folks.....gotta love it, muddy pawprints and all!). Anyway, do check out this home tour, it's a loft and I love what they've done with it.
And since I am being very generous with the links today, let me provide you with yet another home tour, in sunny California no less! When we retire, I want that life....footloose and fancy free!! :D
I do hope you'll check out these awesome homes--they spoke to me on different levels, each one unique, each with a charm of its own. What did you like about them?
