Hi Alice,
I love your parasol and for a fiver too! It looks lovely in your space. I love seeing pictures of your gorgeous home. You do the prettiest vignettes I've ever seen. You know I love your roses.


The parasol looks great and I love your roses, so pretty!

That parasol is just right for the Summer and what a fantastic price. I must go shopping with you, Alice. I am quite taken with the hanging basket too, so precious with lace and roses. And petite Marie, as always she looks beautiful in your home (lucky Marie!), thank you for mentioning her original home here. Final note: Please come visit me and give my home a much needed makeover!

Is it OK that I'm sitting here drooling on my keyboard over that parasol??!! Oh Alice, you did GOOD!! And what a perfect spot for it ~ it looks gorgeous there....I love everything in your house! Wishing you a wonderful week sweetie ~ xxoo, Dawn


My goodness - your photos posted today are just gorgeous!! So happy I follow your blog. LindaSonia


Your photos are amazing! Love...love...love how the old parasol looks on your armoire.


I don't even have to tell you how beautiful your home is. My favorite part of summer is going for a drive with the windows down, starting at twilight and heading into the night. And I really like to do it barefoot! There's something about it that makes me feel so free! Have a wonderful week! ~Lori

I just adore summer, and just like you said, not just the wonderful weather, but the sales!! Garage sale season just doesn't last long enough in the midwest.


I love your blog - it is beautiful. Your photos are breath taking. I especialy love the pink roses - that is my favorite flower and color. I hope you have a wonerful day.

Do you think I could just move into your home? {lol} It's so, so lovely! And I love what you did with that pretty parasol:)


Alice ~ I just love to find treasures like that ~ I do think it is definitely the thrill of the hunt ~ I love your beautiful photographs too ~ Oh my goodness just gorgeous roses !!


Fabulous photos. Love the parasol, I bought one in Martha's Vineyard a few years ago, I treasure it.

In summer, I look forward to fresh strawberries, warm breezes, linen clothing, day trips to Maine, fireworks.


Alice, your images are so beautiful and such a reflection of you and your beautiful spirit! I love the parasol and it is a perfect addition to your lovely home.



Dear Alice, the parasol is beautiful and just the right touch. (I have a blue one that my cousin brought back from Japan when I was a child and now you have thinking about pulling it out and using it.) Love the photos of your re-done living room. You have such a wonderful eye for detail and your taste is impeccable!

Summer...gardening, sitting on the front porch with my dogs, watching baseball, the smell of newly mown lawns...wish I could capture that feeling I had as a child that the summer stretched on forever.

Hi Alice!

Hello! This is the first time that I've visited your blog. I found you on FLICKR...you are one of my contacts over there. So, I thought I'd stop over...and I'm so glad that I did! :) Love the suitcases and the shutters! I did something very similar with shutters that I display in my kitchen. Come visit me at: http://littlebitvintage.blogspot.com/


What a beautiful tour through your home again...gosh I wish just one corner of my house looked this pretty! :-) Hmm...summertime favorites: pink roses as well, the sounds of crickets and frogs at night, strawberries and watermelon, going to the beach, wearing sandals, staying light outside, the carefree pace...


Alice, I just looooove your post..You have such a beautiful home...I just love your new treasure, what a great price to...Love your pretty roses...Perfect color....Hope all is well...


What a great find! The parasol looks perfect on your armoire. I love your shutters with the vintage photos also.
