Have A Grande Weekend!

This blue kitchen caught my eye while I was flipping through my treasure find The English Home.  It's part of Port Eliot, one of the oldest continually inhabited house in England, dating back thousands of years before Henry VIII.  I would love to cook in here.  Much like I dream of sleeping in other people's bedrooms, I dream of cooking in fabulous kitchens.  I love how this is so different from the modern kitchens we see today.  And that blue is so wonderful.  Ahhh, in my next life I will be born into a grand English home like this one or Downton.  I'd be so great at it. 

I hope y'all have a lovely weekend!!

We got a new sofa for the family room!  It looks just like this Restoration Hardware sofa.  It should be here on Valentine's Day!
