Thank you for all your comments and kind words! I thought I would take a minute to answer a few questions ...
1. Who is Evi?
For those of you who have been following along all year...you are familiar with my talented and creative girlfriends Paula and Evi. I met them both, on the same day about 11 or 12 years ago and post regularly about our adventures and escapades as well as their beautiful homes and collections. My post about our recent Valentine luncheon at Evi's home brought delightful comments from a few of my newest blogger friends and the question... "Who is Evi?"
Evi is a dear friend who happens to be good at... well....everything!
She is an artist, a talented designer and a renowned dollmaker. (click here to see some dolls of hers from an earlier post).
Her home is beautiful and tastefully decorated in an eclectic European style.... ...and everything is always immaculate!
Evi pays attention to every detail. She is a gourmet cook, a wonderful baker, and the hostess with the mostess! A visit to Evi and her husband Ebbie's home is always a treat!
We share a love of antiques, collecting and decorating. To know her is to love her! Evi is a gracious and generous person... ...she always allows me to photograph and share her home and creations with you!
2. What kind of camera do I use?
A simple point and shoot Canon.
I am a novice....just learning and discovering how much fun I can have and how creative I can be with my little camera. My plan is to sign up for a class in digital photography and also one in Photoshop. I hope to someday be ready for a more sophisticated camera!
3. Do I have a shop or an online store?
No. Many years ago, my husband and I bought and sold country primitive style antiques and collectibles at shows on weekends... ...and about five years ago, for a short time, Paula and I shared a booth at an antique mall in Essex, Ct.
However, I have way too much stuff and the plan is to open an Etsy shop soon. ...if I can bring myself to part with anything!
4. What am I going to do next... ... after I leave my corporate job? ...in approximately 3 weeks...
I am trying to figure it out! Anybody have any ideas? Anyone hiring?
So those are answers to a few of the questions that have been asked this week! All photos were taken in Evi's home!

To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
