Looky Loo

Let me introduce you
to one of my lovely
new bloggy friends.
Bonnie is new to the
neighborhood and is
the proprietor of the
charming blog,
I first commented to her
about her darling profile
photo of a sweet giraffe
looking through a window
at Giraffe Manor in Nairobi.
We spoke of our mutual love
for these gentle animals and
she was so kind to send me
these wonderful photos.
When you visit Bonnie’s blog,
be sure and read about
Giraffe Manor
and introduce yourself to
Looky Loo.


Most babies measuring 5ft would be
considered big, but newborn giraffe,
Margaret, at Chester Zoo, UK
is seen as unusually small for her species.

She is one of the smallest giraffes
ever born at Chester Zoo
but pint-sized Margaret will soon be
an animal to look up to.

Little Margaret,
who is the first female Rothschild giraffe
born at the zoo,
is being hand-reared by her dedicated keepers.

We need to cherish this wisdom
and pass it on to those we care for.

A Privet

Many of you
may remember the post
I featured on Hound Hill Design.
Imagine my surprise when yesterday
a package arrived on my doorstep.
Inside was a beautiful little box accompanied by a
a handwritten note from proprietor,
Nancy Toon.
This, her gesture of
appreciation was so humbling
that I felt compelled to share it with all of you.

green walls
defining nature's space.
In spring,
tiny white
form lacy pyramids
on the branches' tips.
They send a fresh,
astonishing fragrance
into the
Hampton'sbrisk evening air.

It's a very special fragrance from a very special place and a very special friend.
Thank you Nancy, I just love it!

L'Hotel Particulier


There are some days

when you just want to politely excuse yourself

from your loving family.

Today was one of those days.

Today all I could think about was

L'Hotel Particulier.

Of course I would have to bring home

this little lovely as a souvenir

for my own front door.

"Family....I'm home."

fresh take on a sleeping porch.

Her style is traditional, timeless,

masculine, yet pretty.
