At home...

I love how the peonies from Pike Place market brighten my home. Its so nice to buy flowers for special occasions or when you are entertaining. However, for me whats even better is to wake up to see flowers on an ordinary day :-) They do make those dull and grey days in Seattle seem brighter. We are gearing up for a sunny weekend to celebrate the July 4th holiday and I can hardly wait.

I am getting a start on the weekend by having a dinner for my friends tomorrow. Its going to be a lot of fun and laughter. My neighborhood friends are my lifeline. I am not sure what I would do without them....

There have been some tiny changes around my house and I shall put up the pictures soon............




Finally, I have found a frame and a place for my vintage map of India. I have been wanting to do this for a long time. I like to surround myself with things that have a special meaning for me............hence the India map,  a table lamp that says Paris, to remind me of my honeymoon, a clock my parents bought me from an antique store......and the silver candlesticks that belonged to my great - grandfather completes the picture.
