Back to Evi's holiday home and fun and delicious holiday luncheon!
I am currently sitting in a Panera's...
(love their gouda and sausage souffle :)
...and have an hour to quick put this post up before church!
In Evi's kitchen she has this wonderful scrubbed pine cupboard that her talented husband Ebbie reconfigured to fit the space above her counter. Evi then had this beautiful red toile fabric set behind chicken wire on the doors.
This winter, Evi dressed her bed in this wonderful quilt
with muted reds and browns.
I just love the stenciling Evi did all around the room
just beneath the ceiling.
If I were able to have and keep a home as pristine as Evi....
....I promise I would exercise each morning
with these old wood barbells!
This shelf above the desk in the second bedroom holds Evi's collections of little stuffed dogs...
...many of which she uses as accessories when creating her dolls.
I always keep a lookout for treasures like this for Evi
when I am out searching in the flea markets.
This is also the room that Paula and I slept in one year
when we girls had a PJ party!
:)....that was so much fun!
While we were having our fun afternoon...
these neighbors kept peering in at us....
...obviously they knew were the action was and wanted to join us.
It broke my heart to turn this sweet
dear deer away!
So...yesterday was Mr. Flea's and my anniversary...
...he in NY and me in Chicago!
Happy Anniversary honey!
Lynn and I are working hard packing up her pretty things...
...a few more days and we plan to visit some shops
and do a little treasure hunting.
Thanks so much to the kind friends who have emailed me their recommendations and tips for vintage and antique spots in the area!
I will be reporting back as soon as I am able...with photos.
Until then...be well, be kind and have fun!
