A day late and a dollar short as they say. My good friend Laura has been good enough to get the ball rolling with her wonderful pictures of Centerbrook and Ivoryton garden tour last Saturday. It was great to finally see each other in person after so many months of just emailing, phoning and of course blogging. She was as beautiful as always and never without a smile on her face. I was so lucky to be able to leave work early and join her.
THANK YOU George!!! and on a Saturday no less. I owe you big time!!!
I'll start with the house that on the tour was #1
But in our opinion is always #1.....
Paula's house....what can I say in words that can even begin to explain how utterly enchanting it is. From the moment you walk in you know someone special lives here. Someone who's home is their sanctuary. She doesn't over fuss about her decor but yet it looks like everything has found it perfect spot. It is a knack I suppose not all of us possess but all of us aspire to. The candlestick is one she bought from me a few years ago and I almost didn't recognize it because it looked so much better when she displays it in this old shadowbox.
Here's that cute little crown thingy again....this time planted with blue zepher Brachycome. Some people pronounce it Bracky- comb. Some pronounce it Bra-Kick-O- Mee. I like the later better. You decide???
Paula had lent her collection of watering cans to every house on the tour so as to identify them. They got brought back to her all filled with grasses and salvia just sitting there in her yard by her shed. Soooo pretty!!!!
