pink then blue.

Yesterday started pink and ended blue. Boiled eggs? I am trying to go without sugar until I go to Paris. This means no can do for my beloved chocolate morning cereals. In two weeks time pastry and macaroons will be my reward.

This white house, draped in wisteria with the blue shrub out front is for sale near my home. I thought I would investigate and see how much it was going for. Little out of our price range and on closer inspection I read that it has eight bedrooms. Eight. Maybe I will play the lottery tonight. I do dream of owning a pretty boutique bed and breakfast one day. Imagine all the fun you could have decorating all those bedrooms.

The bottom photo shows another house in my street getting fixed up. I wish all the houses in the road could be painted ivory to match like they used to be. It would make our little block look lovely.

I love that house! I like the Victorian windows - lovely!


By the way, what kind of diet are you on? Are you just trying to avoid sugars?

the lovely blue shrub is probably a ceanothus, they are in full bloom here in Ireland as well. BBB like boutique bed & breakfast sounds great, you can book one week for me ;-) cheers from eliane

Lovely photos of the ceanothus (sp?) it's such a vivid blue! But no chocolate makes me sad.

hello!
I just wanted to thank you sooo much for the doll we just received! It was a -very generous- giveaway through the "A year of color" blog. She is wonderful, so much detail. I thought she looked like an Amelie, but my daughter has claimed her - and takes her everywhere - and she has named her Mystical Grace!
Thanks again for the amazing gift, and happy travels! ♥

You know when you find a blog that you like before you even scroll down coz the banner is so fab - this is what happened when I came across you today (so pretty). Love it and the other one too. Will certainly return often x

Your block looks so pretty and peaceful. The thought of decorating eight bedrooms is just so fun! I'd do at least one in hot pink or purple.
