Good Morning!

When I woke up this morning, it was cool, the humidity was tolerable, the birds were singing and my house was quiet.  I know, hard to believe.

So I tippey-toed around the house opening every door and window to take in a rare & much needed cool breeze. What more could I ask and time!  Time to read email and visit with you!

You all know that the best way to start a morning of reading and writing, is to catch up with old friends and to receive a note from a new one. This is why I put my original post on hold, to introduce you to new friends in Bali!
The Dupps Family.
Katherine & Rally Dupps and their two small children surrounded by the beauty of Bali and their incredibly chic batiks!
He's originally from Nashville and she was born and raised in Arizona. A backpacking trip through Southeast Asia while dating, brought them to where they are today.
Producing a beautiful line of batiks inspired by their love of travel, textiles and design.
 Thank goodness you can see & shop for Katherine Rally Textiles and accessories at fine boutiques right here at home. I'm sending my mom right over to La Grande Orange in Phoenix!

Ok, in case you were wondering, I started writing this post almost two hours ago. The ethereal picture I painted at the beginning of the post was short-lived. I've kissed the husband and daughter goodbye, answered two phone calls, waved to my walking buddies, fed Gracie and closed up the house. Uggh, the heat & humidity has arrived & the starving 16 year old son has just risen. Oh, to be in Bali.
For more ethereal goodness, visit Maria Killam at Colour Me Happy this morning where she discusses the art of creating ethereal settings at home. I'm all for that!
I'll catch up with you all in a bit...

Lisa good morning - I loved this post as I could picture you perfectly opening up your windows, waving to the walkers passing bye, enjoying the moments. Life is great and it's so good to be needed isn't it? But sometimes those stolen moments need to come more often.
The Dupps family is way too cute & the fabrics look just as amazing. Can't wait to check into further.

Thanks as always my dear, your the 'bestest' x
