Some Sweet Inspirations










We recently attended the wedding reception of our friend's daughter, Michaela. The event was held at wonderful country property that has recently been remodeled, landscaped and designed to host events. The owners have done a great job in creating an English style garden with boxwood hedges, lush plantings and little bits of garden romance tucked in here and there. I took several photos to share with you for some ideas and inspiration. My favorite thing of all was the iron bed that is in a wonderful old wood outbuilding with painted wood floors. I could hang out there all day!!!

I would love to hang out there. Everything looks terrific. I just notice your beautiful dog. We had a miniature schnauzer, and just lost her in April. She'll always be with us in heart.
I need to get back to your archives, you have a very interesting blog.
