If I could....

If I could find this house here, I would buy it.
If I could find the box containing this framed print, I would hang it.

If I could tell you the name of this vine I gathered on the rivers edge, I would.

If I could tell you "who" he is I would....I really need to make better notes, If I could, well, ya know,,, remember....

Have a spectacular and memorable weekend.

Love that house too! I bet it has a beautiful garden behind it!

I like the whole post - it feels good. :)

I think we have something in common. I also love Victorian and Amercian Folk Art and I had a wholesale business for 15 years called Twigs. I read your profile.

Oh, what a LOVELY blog you have! I have so enjoyed wandering around, reading your wonderful posts. I think we must have a lot in common! I love this little cottage house, too. I was fortunate to own a beautiful little cottage in Kentucky before getting married and moving to Tennessee. Now I have an old Victorian, a former "painted lady" who is now white but just so anxious to regain her former glory and "colorful" past (I can tell). We're working on her a little at a time.

I look forward to reading more of your posts. Thank you for visiting my blog and signing up to follow it.

Oh, and welcome to the South! :-)

Blessings,
Paula

The vine looks like what we call"love in a Puff". The seeds are balack w/ white heart shaped marking on them. Break open a very dry one and see.
This is my first reading of your blog-won't be my last!!

Love your little...'If I could'...post. And can just imagine walking through the threshold of a home like that...back in time to a quiet place. Sit on a bench under the blooming trees in the garden...do I really have to wake up?
Happy hunting, Candy

I believe the painting is of that fine lyrical English romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.

I could be wrong of course.

Hi, Marcie--

'Happy to have met you (from following a link from Madai's new photos). :)

This house looks like one of my dream cottages too. I'll have search my email to find a link to a similar house--it's in New York state and I saved the info about it--that you'd probably be as enchanted by as I am. Watch your email, it should be heading to your inbox soon. :) This one too is a charmer--and so serene.

Best Wishes, :)

Val
