Hey guys! It has been too long since posting, and I'm excited to report that we have moved into our new place, a Queen Anne Victorian built in 1895
I love the simple yet charming woodwork that surrounds the front of the house. This is the view from my home office. Wisteria coils from the side of the porch...
The last couple of weeks have been much taken with choosing paint colors. Here is the warm peach we selected for the living room:
This refreshing French blue was painted on the kitchen wainscoting, love it! Works very well with our blue and white china collection.
I'm so excited to introduce our new family member, Saki! She is a lovely Himalayan, quite talkative and loves being picked up and cuddled...and also loves hanging out in the garden, in spots of half sun-shade, or up on the high garden wall, surveying her realm.
Here she is next to the very neat vintage stove:
A view of the garden, early morning:
There are several raised beds and a large in ground bed with good soil--arugula and spinach starts are in, and we are shopping for seeds at the Petaluma Seed Bank tomorrow. This space gets a great deal of direct sunshine, which will make not only vegetables but roses, iris and so many other beautiful flowers possible, too...
English sweet peas, to be trained up a wire screen
On a foodie note, our first breakfast in the new house was graced by mimosas made with champagne given by dear friends back East as a house warming gift (we drove across the country with this special bottle).
So yummy with a fontina, mushroom and baby tomato omelet. A locally made sourdough dusted with fennel seeds was the perfect accompaniment...
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and happy cooking!
