I bought several House and Garden magazines at the thriftstore yesterday. This picture was in one of them. Could you imagine this being your garden? It blows my mind. This is the kind of picture I wish I could climb into. Especially when things are crazy around here.
Calgon anyone?

okay, you know that picture in my kitchen? probably not, but that's my dream place. (i think i might post it for you) and it's a park in Austin, Tx. next time i'm down there i'm gonna go find it. and just for the record, as i look oputside i see three BIG, AGRESSIVE, canine eating machines. it takes more than calgon over here. you know the drill..... feeding 6 today are you?

"climb into.." that's exactly the sentiment I feel sometimes when I see certain images. yeah, that garden looks pretty dreamy, alright. *sigh*

Now I am not sure I am up for that being my garden - so much work and I don't have a green thumb so I would ruin it. BUT it so looks like a place I could visit and stay forever...beautifuL!

Don't you love thrift store magazines? I scoop up armfuls of National Geographic when I see them!

Elizabeth- Thriftstores are the best for magazines. 40cents each where I shop. Can't beat that!

Maulleigh- It's the Temple of Apollo located on the grounds of Manor Stourton in England. Something Blue- Serene is the perfect word.

The first thing my kids would say would be, "I don't have to mow this, do I?"

Marcie, thanks for coming over to my place! I enjoyed reading your thoughts. I think my favorite aspect of your posts is that they each give me such a good, warm-fuzzy feeling. And lady, I needs me all the warm-fuzzy I can get these days. There's just something about the manner in which you express yourself; it's like a chocolate chip cookie, fresh outta the oven. :)
