Cleaning House !!!

Cleaning House

Well, American Family Services will be arriving to take away all of my 'stuff' on Wednesday. That means that I am in a self-imposed sequestered state - and beginning the task of going through EVERYTHING. Stuff, clothing, books ... nothing is safe (well, that's not totally true). I have great stuff ... but just too much stuff. And, my thinking is that someone else will soon be able to enjoy my great stuff in THEIR home ... and less is more, n'est-ce pas? (that's French for 'is it not so?'

My kitchen next to my 'potager' ... kitchen garden

Here is my wonderful rooftop apartment and the kitchen that I just love to cook in every night. I have a gas stove and an iron 'grill' pan ... which I certainly got my money's worth out of (incorrectly ending in a preposition). I have a wonderful garden - my 'potager' - that's 'kitchen garden' in French. And every night I pluck away at the thyme, rosemary and basil to add to my salads. In France, I will live in a beautiful stone villa complete with gas stove ... so VERY happy about that ! Be sure to visit my blogging website if you have the chance (and if I'm equipped with internet !!)

Here's my pretty living room. It's the only room in the house that is almost all white. I needed this break from all of the color !!! White walls, carpet, sofas, bookshelves, ceiling fan ... oh, and white fish plate from Portugal. I really love this room and, hopefully, one day will use it more - now that I am back in my apartment - for now.

Ok ... resume cleaning, organizing and donating ...

By the way, this living room photo was taken holding my E620 Olympus up in the air, still being able to see the viewer via the swivel feature. Every day I'm more ga-ga over the capabilities of this camera ... and I haven't even read the manual yet !


If you would like to purchase a 6" x 6" oil painting on stretched canvas that you see on this site, or commission a painting that is special to you, please email me.

These paintings are priced at $100.00 plus s/h.

Thank You!

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It’s the old what goes around comes around routine.
