HOW I SPENT MY SUMMER

Well Hello There!
I have returned. I spent my summer taking pictures for you to enjoy, I hope. I started in Brooklyn.
 
Fabulous flea markets are not just limited to Paris (although, next summer....).


 One might think of this as a wonderful child's toy, but of course, I was thinking what a dynamite accent of red this would be on my French Country sun porch.
 
Doesn't this just scream "French Provinical!" Please hang me in your salon.
 
 

Even the setting seems to recall days of strolling along the Seine. For those of you who haven't yet been, Brooklyn is quite beautiful.



Every maison needs a little whimsy. I call him "Dude" after one of my favorite horses.

I even managed to stumble on some beautiful blue ticking. Since I traveled to the Western United States this summer, I couldn't make it to France. This made me feel so much better. Almost... almost like being there.

Bon Voyage!!! Wouldn't these suitcases make a great set piled high in a living room. What fabulous  looking storage bins.

My wonderful friend Barb and I stumbled upon this colorful set of bicycle wheels just around the corner from the flea market. I know someone will be inspired to  make a great garden display from this photo. If it's YOU, please be sure and send me photos! MERCI!!


Do you know that when you drive out of Brooklyn on the parkway, there is actually a sign that says, "Leaving Brooklyn. Fuggedaboutit!" Seriously, this is true. I pass it frequently (albeit at too fast a speed to get a photo for you.)

So, this is how I started my summer.  Of course I missed being able to post to all of you, but I hope by the time you read through my next few blogs, you will feel it was worth the wait. Many of my locations this summer didn't have internet. I can't wait to tell  you all about my travels off the grid. I hope they help you find inspiration for your home. In the meantime,
"SPREAD LOVE THE BROOKLYN WAY."
 
Till next time...
