Cracked painted furniture. Little bureaus. Color. Rich colors jumbled together like vintage fiestaware. Old faded colors. Pink and brown with a touch of green. Aqua with a touch of tomato-soup red. Gray! Taupe! Time-worn whites!
Crafting: always. Uninhibited craft-ability.
Big windows that start low to the ground and reach close to the ceiling having a view to the garden or a walled courtyard. Herbs. Especially dark blue lavender. Recipes with rosemary in them. Real maple syrup. White sheets and bedding. Vintage bark cloth. Wrinkly linen slip covers. Hemp and linen clothing.
Old pincushions and sewing boxes. Vintage suitcases. Pathetic looking teddy bears. The smell of bergamot. Vetiver. Sandalwood. The smell of a wood fire. Antiques and Antique malls. Old houses. That old house smell.
Big shade trees. The theme music to Nova. Jane Austen movies. See Lost In Austen. Crafting in a garden. Drinking a cup of tea in a favorite cup.
