Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

FRENCH COUNTRY ENGLISH COTTAGE GARDEN TRADITIONAL IRISH FARMHOUSE

That pretty much sums up my home decorating style.

I cannot decide on one style. It's too hard. I love it all.

Actually, I don't like modern or Victorian or retro.

I'm struggling with the toile thing.

I love, love, love it. I just have trouble placing it in my home for some reason. I either have too small a splash to make a difference or I go way overboard. I need to find that perfect middle ground. I guess I'll just have to keep reading my favorite decorating blogs! :-)

I did order new curtains for the bedroom and living room. I have to adjust the tieback and then I will post photos.

We planted a new rosemary outfront. Unfortunately, the beautiful agave we had grown for years bit the dust this year. There are some kind of bugs that attack them and this year, they took it down. The rosemary will look beautiful though. And the backyard is coming along nicely. We still have a ton of work to do before I even post photos of that though.

Today is my last day to relax and then it's back to work tomorrow. I had a wonderful break, getting to bond with my sweet grandson, Andrew. I miss him already. We spent hours on the couch, him snuggled up under my chin on my chest. I loved the way he curled up like a lima bean when you picked him up. The he would arch his back and streeeetccchhh like only a baby does. He smelled so lovely - that new baby smell - and I cannot believe how smooth his skin is. I can't wait to see my baby Roo again!

Happy Easter!

I'm not into Victorian (too fussy for me) or modern (not enough fuss) either. As you know, I LOVE toile but I don't do too much of it like on the walls AND everywhere else. Although I've seen rooms in magazines where everything has toile on it and it looks really nice. I just don't think I could live with it like that.
