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 for....coffee 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 Textilesand 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!
