Use it up

Use it up, wear it out,
make it do, or do without

Enjoy using up the last days of August !

If I had a single flower for every time I think about you,
I could walk forever in my garden
Claudia Ghandi

a Glimpse of the Andre van Beek garden
Saint Paul, France

Do not forget to press or dry some of your favorite Summer flowers
Autumn is just around the corner !

Happy, happy weekend

Salon du tea

When in France,
we spent quite some time in this lovely tea salon
It is in Ermenonville,
the city where Jean-Jacques Rousseau died many many years ago

I like the idea of English conversations every first Friday of the month

a Brand New Day

Some snapshots from around my house

to start the week off right I suggest
a Brand New Day by the Wiz
I keep hitting the reply button !

~ Energy ~

Passion is energy
Feel the power
that comes from focusing on what excites you

a beautiful garden
a dreamy table setting
a bunch of inspiring ladies

do you feel the energy yet?

Thank you sweet Madelief for the lovely afternoon
full of beautiful china, homemade deliciousness, cheery colors,
tons of tea and good company !

Roue de Paris

In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west;
people create distinctions out of their own minds
and then believe them to be true ..

I am so happy to be back in blog land
and cannot wait to catching up with all of you
in the next few days

I spend a little time in France and a lot of time with my funny children this Summer
Will tell you all about it in the upcoming weeks ;)

Have a happiest of weekends !
