While we're still waiting to hear about our latest counter-counter offer, here's a link to a tour of Mary's House, a home with the exact interior feeling I'd like to give Hobbit Cottage.
I'd planned to do a whole Daisy Cottage look (because I love it so), but we'd have to buy ever so much stuff, whereas, we already own nearly everything we'd need for the Mary's House Look. And since we already bought the stuff Mary uses, it must be that, deep inside, Tom and I prefer it. So, as with farm-dreaming and reading, I'll just do Daisy-Cottage-dreaming over Kim's photos and be content.
Hey, I'm learning.
Sadly, the Adirondak author, Anne LaBastille, passed away on Friday at age 75. You can read her obituary here. She certainly led a full life doing what she was called to do and I'll always be grateful that she left us her story.
A very special thanks to those of you who have clicked on my "I Recommend" amazon.com box over here on the right --------->. Whenever you buy anything afterward--even if it's not something I've listed in that box--I am given credit, and well, last week they sent me my first gift card. Woo hoo! So thanks again. (And anytime you feel like ordering from amazon--if you'd zip over here first and enter through my box--well, I'd be thrilled to pieces.) :)
Oh, and my mom and her beau are still doing great. He'll have a birthday this week--so for awhile--he'll only be 8 years younger than my mom. heh. He's driving her to Washington state to visit her best friend from high school whose husband passed away in February then he'll leave for a week-long Alaskan cruise with his kids. After that, he'll return for my mom. Happy sigh that my mom is enjoying such a nice life.
