In lieu of trying to belong to any number of societies: Chesterton, Sherlock Holmes, the Inklings, and so on: I propose and establish one of my own. Don your intelligence cap at the door; dust off your logic and imagination; did you bring your inspiration and encouragement? We are shapers, my friends; lit lamps; light-bringers. Bring quotes*; poetry should be uplifting and thoughtful, or witty and clever, (or both). Humor is encouraged; laughter is invited back. Pull up a chair. Anyone for tea?



Auntie's bed and books!

They are so darling.

What a wonderful Auntie you are, Olivia!

They will remember these times with you their whole lives!

Precious beyond words!

Livi, what is the color on your walls? It looks, in pictures, like a duck egg blue, but pictures on the computer monitor can be rather deceiving. I'm planning on painting my bedroom after the first of the year, and want a sort of icy blue with ever so slight a tinge of green. That is what yours appears to be, and if I am correct in that assumption, I may just have found the color of my dreams. <3<3 If you could let me know the brand and name, or possibly send a brush of a bit of it on a scrap of paper, that would be so helpful. It's so lovely!

Olivia said...

Yes, Auntie Meredith, it is such the loveliest color. I love it dearly (I tried another color when I moved here, but had to revert to the lovely blue we had discovered at our old house.) I would love to send you a bit of painted paper in the mail with its name. ;)

Livi, I went to Home Depot today and grabbed every paint chip that approximated what you have on your walls, but nothing spoke to me like this one does. I so hope I can match it. It's such a pretty color. So pretty, in fact, that being swept away by its beauty, I completely failed to mention those two beautiful people sitting on your bed. <# Yumminess.
