Happy weekend everyone.
I hope everyone had a wonderful week .
This holiday week was full of fun and a bit of work on projects over here- and a whole lot of playing with Cleo time.
Truckee River Ride
My husband and I loaded up our bikes for a trip up to Tahoe this week. A road trip, a bike ride and a few quiet moments soaking up the beauty of the lake was perfect after a bit of busy.
We started out riding near Alpine Meadows – and enjoyed watching all the rafters floating along the slow river as we made our way up to Tahoe.
We paused for a bit at the lake to soak up the magic that Tahoe is and then headed on back down the hill to wrap up other business in the area.
I am pretty sure next time I need to load up a beach bike for a few inspired photos as well.
I am not one to constantly redecorate or redesign everything constantly. But I do like a fresh perspective here and there. With pillows or new bedding or a piece of furniture that takes a room from fabulous to even more fabulous.
We are currently in process of revamping the cottage. Fresh paint, a few tweaks to the existing layout and a few furniture changes are on the agenda. And even developing a dedicated patio area.
I will be sharing some of what I am thinking and dreaming up design wise soon- but it isn’t going to be a snap your fingers change. With lots of various projects on the agenda- (ahem that diamond glass door and those marble fireplaces) we are tackling one project at a time. But basically- out with much of the pieces that have made me crazy for awhile now- and in with ‘new’ old pieces that I have been collecting.
Cleo and Ivy
Lots of fun with two of my grand dogs yesterday. My son and his girlfriend brought Ivy over to meet Cleo- and they ran around the house like wild dachshunds playing together.
Sweet Pea is not a fan of Cleo yet… that puppy energy might be a bit much for her. But we did see a wee little bit of tail wagging going on yesterday when Cleo tried to give her a kiss- so maybe they will become friends yet.
I worked on photographing a few things for one of the companies I work with this week. And it happened to be beautiful bedding was on the shoot list. Layers of gorgeous velvets, ruffles and linen perfection were on the agenda. I loved the soft neutrals- and of course, the delicate details.
This week is all about behind the scenes and some of what I have been working on that I haven’t delved into over here. And as well- I am sharing something on the personal side- and something on the exciting side.
And yes, those pillows- because with the busy of last week… that post didn’t get up.
Stay tuned and happy July everyone.
