Rugs Change the Look

Which rug do you like? I am buying the one on the lower left in an 8x10 for my livingroom. I love this rug company, their rugs are so cheerful.

This photo is taken from August 26 Absolutely Beautiful Blog Site. I love the lamps and lamp shades, the fabric hanging in the back, the table and the simplicity of the store window.

The Crabtree and Evelyn soaps make my shop smell as pretty as it looks:)

God's view of the Leelanau Peninsula

From the top of Eagle Hwy
in front of St Wenceslaus church
you can see Pyramid Point and Whaleback
Lake Leelanau and Lake Michigan all at the same time!

Annechovie: PAGODA PRESS


Still on the learning curve and am trying to reblog this blog! All I can say is Annechovie has a great eye and I seem to be drawn to anything she picks out. is where you can go to view her blog about Pagoda Press. I think Anne should have a store or be the buyer for one! Have a great day.
