The Dutchess said...

Dearest...such a fun post..and I am now going to find out what Bloglovin is..

And I will folow you everywhere..xoxo

millefeuilles said...

Hello sweet Anita!

I am lost for words here! Just look at the colours and passions you have grouped together in one glorious post! Your concept of beauty is so compelling and I am left wishing that we lived closer together so that we could share our mutual loves in the garden over tea.

Thank you SO MUCH for visiting Millefeuilles...twice! I am so fortunate. I was in the garden Under our cherry tree knitting with silk! It may be too late for me to answer your question about Little Red Riding Hood but I would, of course, be delighted.

Now, I really must ask you how your writing is going?

Bisous from my heart,

Stephanie

We have you too Anita and we are going nowhere but here. Love the images and the water makes us want to go for a swim as it is sunny and hot here for once. Hooray.
Have a serene Sunday and stay cool.
Best wishes Molly

Sandy at You May Be Wandering said...

Such stunning images, Anita! I have already migrated all my blogs to bloglovin'....now to just get people to follow me there! Google+ is fun too...taking my time learning there. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

Celia M. High Heeled Life said...

Bon jour mon ami; I've just sat at the computer looking at the calendar and realized google reader is disappearing within hours. It'a all so confusing for us non-tech people. Will give Bloglovin a look ... in any case I will continue to follow along.

Beautiful images .. Hugs and blessings, C. (HHL)

Tammie Lee said...

oh! so much eye candy!
i looked at each photo over and over.

i love how you are embracing poetry and prompts. i so agree with you, art is art is art
expressing ourselves in any direction from cooking to decorating our homes, painting and words....
lovely adventure to you!

Heather Lindstrom said...

Anita dear~you have captured the essence of summertime in a single post. Pure gorgeousness.
Yes! I will follow you on bloglovin. I've been suggesting that site myself. I'll follow your perfect blue shoes anywhere!
Happy summer!
xx, Heather @Stylemindchic

Sarah said...

I've already moved my blog list to Bloglovin, but it doesn't allow my blog to be added. If you want to follow me, you'll have to subscribe via email on the upper right of my sidebar. Hopefully I'll get it figured out. Bloglovin tells me the feed is valid, but can't be recognized by Bloglovin. Don't understand all this techy stuff.
Hope all is good, Anita. ~ Sarah

Down by the sea said...

How could we not continue following you! The post as always is so beautiful. I adore those shoes, and the images are so summery!

Kelly said...

Having the loveliest Sunday because of YOU my friend, who makes me smile. ; ) I will keep you in my sights! <3

Burlap Luxe said...

Hi Anita. I follow and hang onto everything word. Your photos are so beautiful and music to match.

I àm going to email you later, and talk to you on some points to all matters we have discussed.

Is that one of our sweet penny's little felts, you know I one day sent off a plain big box of wool to you so she can felt the beauty she so creates for all of us. I love my little grey mouse she dances about our hearts.

Your tyler Knott poem is beautiful, my daughter Hannah reads all his works and saves them for a special moment she needs to reflect on.

See you soon beautiful.

Bisous

fee @ chipper nelly said...

(happy new week)

The enchanted home said...

All this jargon is kind of new to me..you would think I would "get it" by now..but I am sure in due time lol.

Love your pics Anita and the wonderful magical place they take me to...seriously I get truly caught up in them and let my mind go on a little two minute vacation. Thank you!

deana sidney said...

I just read about some cataclysm that is to befall my list of blogs tomorrow. I am not sure how to deal with it since I am scrambling to leave on vacation. I do know it is the best way to know when favorite blogs are updated and that it's in my face. I don't see that anything else will be as successful! Thanks for the reminder. Hope we can all figure something out.

June said...

It's going to be a challenge I think for me since I no nothing about changing over, but surely I will figure it out somehow :)
Beautiful beautiful images in this post dear Anita.
sending many hugs...

Dearest Anita,
I am giving you a hug from afar, my friend! You are truly a wonderful soul and I am touched beyond words that you have included my Little Red Riding Hood in your sweet post.

My Mom says it's very warm (100 degrees in the shade!). We are getting some unusually warm temps here too .. 90 degrees! It's difficult to sleep when the house gets so warm. Have a wonderful visit with your family!

You enchant me. There is beauty everywhere and each time I read your blog, you bring the forgotten and unseen to me, leaving me in a much better place. Thank you!

Renae Simple Sequins said...

Oh My Anita! Thank you for you sweet compliments. I have been at the Savers Sales and I am beat dog tired. I spent my $50 budget well and details will follow later in the week. I bought nine scarves for about $6 total! Yes!!!

This post is beautiful with its turquoise everywhere. I love turq and I love those shoes/flats at the beginning and the end. The music was lovely with it all. Ooooooh, lovely!

Donna Heber said...

Adorable post! I'm hoping too much doesn't change with Blogger. Have a great day.

Trudye said...

This beautifully spirited place is one of my favorite places to stop and take a deep breath,but as of late I am unable to view on the iPad. I can view on laptop only. Would love to know if there is a solution?
Thank you Anita for sharing your beauty, Trudye

Michele said...

Hi Anita,

I will follow you, maybe you could fill me in with all the details about switching to bloglovin, I have not switched yet, Do you like it so far? Hope your day is going well.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Hi Trudye!

I can't reach you via your profile since it looks like you don't have a blog, and to offer any solutions, I am at a loss....I have no idea why you are unable to view my blog via your ipad. Thank you for letting me know that you read my blog; that means so much to me!

I would ask someone at the Apple store about the capacity of your ipad to pick up on websites, but really, I don't know. Thanks for the interest! Anita

Renae Simple Sequins said...

Oh how I wish I could, too.

I should write a post about how to shop for thrift, huh? I always say it is like a game; 50% lucky and 50% skill and the skill ain't hard to learn.

Best to you in your travel to LA tomorrow.

Trudye said...

Dear Anita,

Thank you for your kind reply. In the past, I had no problem with viewing your post nor do I have it with any others. I will continue to try and troubleshoot.

In this regard,blogging,I remain a follower! As the others have said above...I will follow you anywhere!
Beautiful souls gathered here! T

Oh sweet Trudye! THANK YOU!!! Good luck my dear! (I'm really not good at understanding technology!) Anita

Karen Harvey Cox said...

Hi Anita,

Lovely post. You know I get an e-mail for bloglovin each day. But I never use it. I think I have about ten blogs I faithfully follow, and yours is one of them. I don't have as much time lately to visit lots of blogs. But soon old winter will arrive and I will be snuggled in my home reading all the posts.

Have a beautiful week and a lovely 4th.

Karen

What an astoundingly beautiful collection of images! I found your blog off of your comments on Style mind Chic... it is just divine!

Art and Sand said...

As usual, your words and photos and music are wonderful. I was surprised to see on my sidebar that you had done a recent post. I thought you weren't posting for awhile and was mad at myself for not checking.

I hope your writing course is going well.

Martina said...

Hello gorgeous, sorry i've come so late to see your BEAUTIFUL post - and - oh my, my lemon painting is included! Anita, life has been a bit too much for me lately, you'll see why on my new post. But i did think of you and will try to catch up on everyone.
Changes in following - why? i've heard google reader closes dowm, but does that involve FOLLOWING via goofle friends connect?
Love for a happy evening! xoxoxoxox

I like to skim the blogs
that I follow in feedly.com ~
it is a very nice app for the
computer, iPad or phone.

But usually, I just follow
on my Blogger dashboard.
I do hope that isn't changing,
is it?

Hope you are still enjoying
your fun summer and travels!

Style Diary Of A Fashion Fanatic said...

Hello beautiful Anita!!!!
What gorgeous images!!!! I love the shoe photos but the images with Tiffany blue and that diamond bolero are amazing!!!!!
How was your 4th of July weekend? We relaxed for the most part. We were shocked by the plane crash in San Francisco yesterday!!!! What a tragedy!!!! My husband said that's rare for that large of a plane to crash land!!!!
I hope you & your husband had a wonderful weekend!!!!
It's sunny and warm here!!!!

Much Love to you!

Beautiful selection of images as always Anita.

Anne said...

Ooh, turquoise! My favorite! I pinned those fantabulous polka dot pumps, and of course will switch over to bloglovin... guess i should post about that too. Yet another cyberchange, ugh... but worth any trouble to keep up with your wonderful blog, my sweet!

Ms. K @ Write On Thyme said...

How is Anita this summer? And how is your class going? Hope you are enjoying a magical summer!

Tamera Beardsley said...

Welcome home my dear... I am very intrigued with your SoCal visit, as I live here. Where bouts does your family live?

Thank you for including me on your pinterest board... but I'm definitely not a grandmother :) I am sure the confusion arose from the old pictures of my kids I used... I often get sentimental about the changes in my life as they move on.

Again, Anita, I am so very happy to have found your gorgeous and inspiring blog!

Anne said...

Bonjour Anita! its always wonderful to hear from you. Hope you had a great trip to CA! I would LOVE to see the Pinterest board you mention, is there a link? and of course you may use any of my photos and links... merci! xo Anne

Oh Anita! YOU are always making me feel so good! THANK YOU! I am loving my hair, too. When I took those pics lately, it was storming outside and the humidity got to the waves in my hair. It is soooooo hard to get my hair to be straight! But thank you for loving it nonetheless. :D

Jo May said...

Hello Anita!
What a beautiful journey you have taken us on!
Every photo is sumptuous and fresh. I wish to smell the flowers and to dive into the cool crystal waters. I'm not going on holiday this year, but the sun is out, here in the UK and seeing your photos makes me think I am abroad, so thank you for an inspirational post.

Have a magical weekend,

Anita, I love that post with the houses that have those sloped steep roofs. Beautiful sights, I want to paint the girl on the swing, maybe this fall, too much on my plate, Cancer check up and yard is growing faster than we can cut it. Beautiful Post.

A Magical Whimsy said...

I have missed too many of your beloved posts, Anita. You have me soaring on the wings of a dove with these ethereal photos. My sister and I have been trying to find a painting and it may even be a digital one, as the pink building photo in France which is on this post with the statue of the helmeted god(?) holding a maiden may be the very likeness of the painting we have been looking for. My sister actually has a print-out of the photo, but we have no idea who the artist or designer is or who the two figures are in the painting. If you have any suggestions, we have searched hundreds of online angelic images and have found no results. A very elusive painting. I will have no rest until I finally find it some day! The main figure of the angelic man in the photo we are searching for has wings on his feet (like Mercury) and also on his helmet AND he also has wings.
hugs,
Teresa in California
