~ a bridal shower


What a charming house!

I had the pleasure of attending a lovely bridal shower this weekend...

Tables were set throughout the home...



And on the patio...


I loved the delft piece in the kitchen, framing the window which reveals the spectacular backyard...

 This backyard displays an array of the most gorgeous greens.


A tranquil oasis of greens...


The ivy on the front of the house exudes charm, and is the perfect prelude to what's beyond...

That pachysandra is perfection!

That ivy!

I love when ivy grows between steps...



I think I've found the green color I want to paint my front doors :)


The lush and mature landscaping was really wonderful. 




What an outstanding welcome to summer! Thank you to the homeowner for allowing me to share this charming home and enchanting garden. And congrats to the darling bride-to-be and her handsome prince!

~ chicago


I feel like I moved to Chicago. 



I was there for the antique show in April, and have been back twice since!

I am in awe of the flowers and landscaping along Michigan Ave. and in Lincoln Park. My daughter got irritated with me for stopping to take so many pics. She walks by them everyday and although she appreciates them, she walks 100 mph and is not interested in waiting for me to gaze and coo...

I love how the homeowners create such charming vignettes!

This was my fav...



























Although I hate the cold wind in Chicago, I really adore this beautiful city. I beg my daughter to move back to Omaha all the time, but I can see why she chooses to stay...
