We are on the mend! After the Chief got sick, so did I and then Miss E. This has been a gnarly cold – 6-7 days of yuck before starting to feel improvement. But I am finally feeling a bit more energetic.
When I was sitting on the couch the other day, drinking tea and reading a good book, I realized that if I looked up I could see my favorite view in the house. I have often noticed that the most enticing view can be one seen through a couple rooms and out a window on the far side of the house, and mine is no exception. I love to see the afternoon light shining across the house through the bathroom window, backlighting the plant on the windowsill.
The rich paint color also draws the eye and makes the sunlight that much more enticing.
What is your favorite view or sightline in your house?
My favorite moments in life are the ones when I’m sitting in my yard enjoying the beautiful sunshine and fresh air of a weekend afternoon, wearing a summery knee-length skirt and possibly a hat. I might be reading a book or sipping a gin and tonic, or simply hanging out with my husband while he works on a vintage car. Fig Tree Sundays is my way of sharing some of the things that, at their best, remind me of those moments. This means perfume sampling, DIY/decorating, food, and the occasional slice of life. Enjoy!
