I'm Missing Downton Abbey Already.

Sunday nights are so special with Downton Abbey. Season 5 is over and I miss the PBS series already.
I think Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes are perfect together, don't you?

Maggie Smith: The 80-year-old actress anticipates an end to her Dowager Countess role. Read the article in Vanity Fair here. She says she can't go anywhere now without someone wanting to take a selfie with her. 

Screen Doors with Privacy

I drive by an old house with doors like this in the summer. It's close to the road and you can't tell whether or not the front door is open or closed. That's a nice feature for maintaining privacy when you want some fresh air. These doors are especially nice if you have hot sun beating down on your house and no shade. It's snowing again at my house and my weather app says it will continue until midnight and then it will turn to rain. Doesn't that sound dreadful?????? Stay warm and be safe. I'll be in bed with the covers over my head. xo

Yes to This Laundry Room

It's simple and I like it, especially the sink. via

Library Doubles as Dining Room

It would be hard to eat without reading something in this wonderful library full of antiquarian books, wouldn't it? via

The Promise of March

Spring Teaser via
This glimpse of spring doesn't seem possible as I gaze into the frozen abyss outside my window. We'll just have to hang on until Mother Nature decides it's time for a spring thaw. Enjoy your Sunday. xo

My Wish for You Tomorrow Morning

Wouldn't this be a nice way to welcome March? via

Wow. An Overwhelming Task.

So far, so good. via

Kitchen Fireplace

I'm loving the raised hearth fireplace in this lovely kitchen. Home is where the hearth is, right? I see comfy furniture too so I'm sure it's a room you'd never want to leave. via
Have a great weekend!

Unique Bathroom Vanity

I really like this setup. I'd much rather look out the window than look in the mirror, wouldn't you? I know you're not supposed to have water pipes on an outside wall so this wouldn't work for me, especially in the deep freeze we are having. Anyway, I like this a lot, except for the bare bulbs. via

Bill Murray - Portrait

I have no idea what this is all about, but it caught my eye this morning. via Just found out it's by a firm called Replaceface. Link will take you there. Fun!

What a Nice Place to Work

This Vermont Farmhouse is the home of the editors of Cook's Illustrated Magazine and the Public TV Cooking Show "From America’s Test Kitchen". I can't imagine a nicer place to work, can you? I'm sure it's pretty in the snow too.

Lovely English Robin

I love these British birds with the inverted hearts on their breasts. via

Snowshoe Winter

I'm sure I'm not the only one who could have used a pair of these this winter. I'm so tired of falling through the snow and so is Webster. via

This cute little otter doesn't seem to mind the ice cold water. Stay warm and I'll see you later. via

Wonderful Ceiling Treatment

Light walls and dark ceiling.
I love it all: the horizontal wall paneling and the lantern within the X beams. via

Spring Will Come

It seems hard to believe right now but I know this to be true.
