dimanche après-midi

il fait froid à Louisville.
It is cold in Louisville and possible snow flurries!
I can't think of a better way to spend a Sunday Afternoon,


than cuddled up in front of this French Gothic Fireplace
from Origines.
Grab your cashmere throw
and a glass of Merlot,
because off a blog hopping,
we will go!

First stop, the blog Velvet & Linen, the wonderful world
of California designer, Brooke Giannetti.
Brooke shares her stylish home, interior design ideas,
and her love for French and Swedish antiques.

Monochromatic colors and french shutters,


Gilded chairs and a vintage flair



I know you will enjoy your time there!!
Now, top off your glass
and get ready for more class!

Capturing beauty is exactly what Australian stylist, Coty Farquhar does.


Whether it is styling for a wedding, a magazine shoot, or children's clothing, her work is entertainment for les yeux.

How lucky for us, she is willing to share


Visit her here , and into her world, you will peer.

Two wonderful blogs I had to share. I hope you enjoy them and stay warm!

Sante and Bisou :)

I love the first fireplace. If I could transport it to my home I'd love it. The BIG fireplaces are a dream of mine.

What a beautiful blog.

My grandparents were from Kentucky. London I believe? Does that sound right? They moved to New Mexico because my grandfather had TB and needed the dry climate but they always missed Kentucky.

Hi Shawn,
If I was near by in your country I would be on the first bus to your front door and give you the biggest hugs and kisses.
Thank you so very much for your lovely words and kindness. I'm soooooooo touched.!!! I have just come into my office and turned on my computer after the rush of a busy Monday morning getting everyone off to school and shopping to find your new story.

It takes a special person to share someone else work, I hope your week is wonderful, I look forward to watching your beautiful blog as you update your stories.
I will keep in touch, and you have inspired me to share so much more.
xxxxxxx Coty
