On The Porch

Everything on her porch told me I adored her, & we hadn't met yet.
Intuitively knowing she did the decorating for interior/exterior.

By the time a woman uses Kimberly Queen ferns, she KNOWS what she's about.

Vanishing Theshold, combining home/garden were a given, before I went into her home. I KNEW it.

Sherman, blessedly, didn't burn this antebellum home. Poppets, as Anne Shirley said in Anne of Green Gables, 'There is so much scope for the imagination..."
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Pics taken in Athens, GA, last month, same afternoon as the previous 2 gardens posted. I was in Girl Crush the moment we stopped at the curb. Had to know the woman creating the magic....

Tapping into one's connection with a person turned on to their outdoor space and where they really are...sounds like THE fleeting key to great design.

Antebellum, ferns, whimsy...tells me I am somewhere far away!

The face jug lamp is a hoot.

Love the facejug lamp!

I am definitely a woman who appreciates her Kimberly ferns! I have started a nature/writing/photoblog that might capture your interest more than my Cozy Little House blog. I have moved your link there.

Oh... Can I sit on that porch for a little while? Such inspiration! I am starting my Dillard/Hudson project next week and am so excited. Will send pictures.

What a lovely place to sit- thanks for sharing the space and bringing a bit of the "Anne-Girl" into my morning:)
