come on in and rest a while

i came across these images yesterday and seemed so serene, warm, and calming, i just had to share them with you. i love the way they look so open and airy and - best of all - summery. and the workspace at the very top - to die for!

can't you just smell the warm spring breeze? chin up, kittens; we'll be there soon enough.

some fantastic things i've come across in the past few days:
  • this post on the would-be writers guild about bloggers obsession with comments. (it's funny because it's true... so true!)

  • a fresh batch of marta's sweet lil diaries are going on sale again

  • rhea is doing a giveaway of her adorable little illustrated bookmarks (she's talented, that one!)

  • these oh-so-pretty handbags that i discovered in winners the other day - i've never heard of matt + nat before, but i think i'm in love.

    i had two armfuls of purses that i just couldn't put down, and everytime i turned around, i'd run into another bag that i couldn't resist. it wasn't a pretty sight - i think mike almost laughed at me, but i still refuse to admit that i have a problem.

    it's not an addiction when they're irresistible, right?

I'll take any one of those lovely rooms to sit in and adore one of those fabulous bags...

I love the rooms! Unfortunately, with my black cat, my messy dog and my sloppy boyfriend, it would only look that way for about 5 seconds in my house.

i totally agree - i can barely wear a white top without spilling something on it.

by this point in my life, my tide-to-go stick and i are pretty good friends!

Haha, that article about blog comments was written about me. Exactly. Sad but true. Those pictures ARE so welcoming and calming. I feel relaxed just looking at them (: Going to check out your other links now...

Ps: Your blog is addicting! I'm glad it's now on my daily read list!

Rachel said...

We don't have a matt and nat store near me, so I have to ogle the bags online. You're lucky!

Julia said...

I think I would be in danger at the matt and nat store :) I would love to sit and relax in your interior images, though!

Piggy said...

Great pictures! Although, the first picture does not come across as calm, warm or serene. :) Below, I love the font of the text that you have on the right hand side of your blog! Very pretty!

P.S. I use a Nikon D40, and I am madly in love with it.

Ahh I wish I could just curl up in one of those rooms and take a nap or read a book! So lovely.
