admiring the crazy awesome view that still makes me catch my breath every time I glimpse it



It’s true, Seattle really is seeming more and more like home.


Yes, I’m back! But only briefly. I’d forgotten that I’d signed up to participate in the Pin It Forward blog mashup organised by the amazing sfgirlbybay and showcasing the incredible talents of Pinterest, the fabulous new online pinboard tool, which lets you save inspirational photos from around the web. I am going to be using it A LOT in the future.

Tomorrow don’t forget to go and visit Being Tazim, to find out what home means to her. I, in the meantime will be back on Monday. I have been having THOUGHTS.

    A bread bin in exactly that colour now resides in the Irish cottage. Sadly nothing else in the house remotely resembles the pics above…

    I was getting a bit irritated at all of your postcards from France lately, but I scrolled down and saw this one, and I have to say, that if you MUST live stateside, then you’ve picked a lovely city, a lovely section of that city, and a gorgeous home. WOW. I would not mind coming home to that. You are lucky, m’dear. Now, if only you could also have a house in France… Life would be perfect. HAH!
    Thanks for sharing your photos. They are always great!
