More Inspiration from Provence!

One of my favorite weekly activities is hanging with my aunt Christie while our kids swim at the pool.  While trying to keep a close eye on our kids, we drool over images from our favorite magazines!
Simple moments with family and loved one's can be such a blast!  It's what I live for!
Christie... I love ya!!

Here are some of our favorites:

Soft... Timeless Architecture

These beautiful images makes me yearn for a beautiful country getaway surrounded by beautiful landscaping.  The structures are so charming and timeless!  
I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do.

This driveway was replaced with old Napoleon cobblestones.
Now I know where we got the Saltbox structure.

This pond was originally a watering place for horses.

... another Saltbox structure

Nothing is better than chunky shutters painted a soft, chalky blue/green.

I love this beautiful country home designed in the Flemish style.

If I had to design a gate... this is exactly what it would look like!

Did I forget to mention I want this as well?
How fun would this be as a garage?

Such a gorgeous garden!

Those shutters coupled with steel windows... WOW!

Such a beautiful table in the perfect setting!

... perfection!

Unlike Any Food Store I Have Ever Seen!!

Nothing I love more than a beautiful food store selling whole, organic foods.  I would give anything to have this store in my neighborhood.... I would seriously move in!
The atmosphere combined with the beauty of culinary art is beyond anything I have ever seen!
The store is called Daylesford Organic!
They sell foods that are organic, which are from small artisan producers.
They teach people about gardening organic foods and how they can adopt a more organic lifestyle. 
Below are several images of different food stores located around Europe:

The Garden

Farmshop, Gloucestershire

Notting Hill, London


Pimlico Road, London

Have you ever seen such stimulation from a food store?  
Daylesford... will you please come to Utah?
