My New

Bem Vindo to my new home!
My yard. It also has a large area where I am standing and goes around the other side by my bedroom with mountains and mountains of flowers and smells (but no actual mountains, lest you get confused).
It's finally warm enough to take a dip in the pool each afternoon. I haven't opted to heat it as summer is here. I even have a Portuguese pool boy...um, man. He belongs on a telenovela, and most days, so do I.
I've never done a room in blue. I've always wanted to. I have decided that living the ocean--hearing, seeing, smelling it all--gives me the perfect opportunity to do some fun things with blue.
I am starting slowly and softly with this new quilt and delicate pillow shams. I'll build on it though and add some bold new things.

(It took me about an hour to upload these, so I'll have to do more later when I get a better connection.)

The pictures along with your description of dinner by the sea is just too much. How wonderful!

Holy cow, you live in heaven. At least, that's how I picture it looking.

Geez, we are buying a new house and I thought it was fabulous until I saw the pictures of yours!

Seriously, though, I need more pictures! Too, too fun!

Oh wow! I love it. And I'm homesick for Portugal. And I'm horribly out of touch, I know. Hardly on the computer these days. But so good to pop in on you here.

I read other posts, too, by the way. You should like you're on an amazing, introspective journey. How wonderful for you!
