Weekend Observations

I hope none of you are suffering from  St. Patrick's Day "festivities"! We had a quiet one around here. It was nice, as this week is shaping up to be an busy one.

Here's a bit of my weekend....



While eating some of that chocolate, I watched this short film about the writer of this book, John Roderick an AP journalist, and his beautiful farmhouse. If you have 15 minutes, you should watch it. I loved it. Thanks to Walter, at Old Faithful, for telling me about it.

What did you get up to this weekend? Have a great day! Back soon.

And I want to snoop through your stack of mags...

Am not impressed with the blast of snow this morning. Snow on ski hill = good, snow in the city = not pleased!

I think that I must zoom out for some coffee to recover...

That picture is beautiful...like Spring ready to burst.

I went to an Irish pub...somehow I always feel like I am at a frat house on St. Paddy's day 30 years past the best before date.....what is it with 50 year old men and those hats and T-shirts. Now the Irish pipers in the kilts...they were worth it.

I absolutely need to get that book. So lovely! I need to watch the rest of the video when I get home (he's so adorable!).
Any idea where in Japan this home is?

I love those pillows, such an awesome punch of colour. Our weekend consisted of renos, design and some family time playing soccer. Oh and got a bit of rock climbing in too!

Great photos! I saw a similar chair at my local Sally Ann a couple weeks ago...I'm still kicking myself for not buying it...all because it had a little broken spot. Something a pretty pillow made of vintage fabric would have easily covered up.

That was a beautiful film. I'm crying of course. Thank you for sharing it, Janis. I will look for Mr. Roderick's book.

Liza, I cried too. I've watched it a few times. It's so beautiful and the book is as well.
