la Brocanteuse

Jan 11, 2012

Reporting from the Beach House

We are moving around slowly in the sun
..getting back into" must do", "remember to" "please remind me" mode....

 Soothing colors, found objects, nothing too precious

 rough linen, re purposed, old books,favorite drawings

 All is calm, serene and very relaxed

have a lovely day

You are lucky to be in your beach house . Here in sunny Provence , it is raining ( almost snowing) and freezing. I'm waiting for summer to hang out on the beach , to drink Rosé and eat salads
