A Day on Long Island




Celeste has brought back a little lusterware jug from France.
We need to catch up over tea



and a dip in a friend's pool. 
The fish is a new thing to do with chlorine.


The sun casts bright midday shadows.



Paint crunching off the table, matching the out of control petunia.


Paint crunching off the chair.

  4. Nice crunch, Elizabeth! Beautiful shots. Oh I love the look of that swimming pool, so cool and inviting. Would they be as inviting if they weren't always painted acqua blue?

  12. I went to Long Island once when my plane was canceled, sadly I did not get to see much of it. Maybe one day I will get the chance to see it in the daylight. It looked so opulent.

  14. I just adore that chair, and love the 'crunching' red paint on the table, great texture. Makes me want to put all my painted furniture out in the rain for a while.

  19. I like all of the shades of orange in this collection. That lusterware jug is gorgeous, but who made up the equally lovely bouquet?
