Troebadoer said...

Chère Anita,

Quel message flamboyant créé par une dame unique...
Je te souhaite des jours plein de splendeur...






Qui connaît notre nom
habite dans la maison
derrière nos yeux ?
Dans quel monde
existons-nous ?

Que sommes-nous
excepté du désir ?
excepté de la beauté ?
La beauté d'un rêve ?

Voler sur les ailes
de lumière de neige
vers un pays caché
dans les profondeurs du coeur...

Se promener dans un jardin
où les oiseaux fleurissent comme des roses
et les roses planent comme des oiseaux...

Séjourner dans cet endroit magique
où la joie chante
et l' éternité danse...

Lovely Anita, this is such an inspiring idea! You know how much I love Europe; it is my home continent!

I hope I will find time to visit your guests. You are AWESOME and so generous! Love your way!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

How odd...these past few days I've been thinking about some of the trips Dave and I took...drinking new wine, eating cheese, olives and bread in a small ocean side Corsican cafe or breakfast at the K&K King George in Kensington or eating at a table filled with (we hoped) former Russian KGB. Please, may I escape farm work for a while and join your party?

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Received your email Anita... I think it is working once again... I cannot wait till Friday either!

A Magical Whimsy said...

You know I would love to participate, BUT, this year has been so crazily busy! I don't know where the time has gone, seeing it is already half way into the month of July. But I will be coming to view every one who participates, for sure! As this is a dream scape, virtual eye candy I would not want to miss!
lots of love to you, my dear friend!

hi-d said...

Hi Anita - my sista from another mother,
I hope you are enjoying your weekend...but then again, having the summer off is like one loooooong weekend, huh? I hope that you are able to enjoy your time off. I just sent you an email. Oh, I really wanted to participate in this party. It looks so fun...things have been so busy with swimming and trying to get the boys out almost everyday to play...I am exhausted and just can't seem to catch up on my rest. :)

Anyway...I hope your party is fun! As it's always been in the past.

Love to you,
Heidi

hi-d said...

p.s. what a cool photo of you in Italy!

Leslie said...

Good Morning Tina! I am late here ~ it's been so busy with our construction I'm not able to blog much. It is a bit stressful but I know the outcome will be good and worth what we are going through. As for this link party your are hosting....wow! Look at all the participants! It is sure to be a delight and I cannot wait to see what bloggers share. This is perfect for summer:)

I hope you are enjoying the weekend. It has been VERY warm here in Seattle (90 degrees plus!) and we aren't used to this kind of heat!

Madelief said...

Dear Anita,

Just read your post and came over to thank you for your always heart-warming comments and then I saw that fabulous photo. It is you, isn't it? Anita, you look stunning and what an amazing dress you are wearing! It really suits you! I am so glad you posted the photo, because now I know how you look like :-). Somehow it makes a difference for me, seeing who is the sweet lady, who writes all those beautiful posts and leaves those kind comments. It may sound strange, but if it is you, you look the way you write :-)

I am so happy to hear you enjoy taking photographs. Yes, I think you are right, part of what makes my photo's attractive, are the things I bought at flea markets and thrift stores. They create part of the 'atmosphere'. Hope you will be able to see it one day. Meanwhile you can start building your own collection :-)

Looking forward to see your photographs! Wishing you a wonderful summer too! Good luck on your beautiful 'Europe' link party. Hopefully I will be able to join next time.

Happy summer to you as well!

Madelief x

Almost forgot to mention what a beautiful tea set. Very 'Jane Austen' :-)

Draffin Bears said...

Dear Anita,

Love the sweet photo of you in Italy and can't wait to see more photos, of your trip.
Will be great to have a little escape (from the winter here ) and must start packing and get ready for the adventure.
Hope you are enjoying summer and have a lovely week. Thanks for all the kind visits to my blog and comments you leave.
Sending hugs
Carolyn

Burlap Luxe said...

Hi Anita,
It's another beautiful party getting ready and planning is so much fun when it's a French holiday in Paris. I'm sadly not attending this time, I have so much here I am working on, and I'm a mess with painting my out dated cabinets that are in an oak stain to white. It's not a choice I would do if I could start fresh, but it will do for now. This small home can only handle so much, and white would be a good blend for the counter tile, I would much rather have a raw rustic finish to them but, the heavy glossy finish is way to much to deal with all that sanding that would take place. So my days are now painting to just add that French cottage feel.
Next time, you know how much I love your French parties.
Anita, your silver set is so beautiful, and that bottom picture of your sofa with the crown is so romantically French.

I will see you soon.
Xoxo

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Is that little person sitting on the steps in Italy, you, my dear? I think so. I have been on my bed all day for Sat and Sun and I feel tremendously better but still not top notch. Bout 75 %. 100% would be that I am at my 'puter or hours and I am all over blog land spreading my little simple sequins where ever I go. Not expecting that til about mid September. I discovered the lump a week before Halloween. That is when I will probably feel great again. By then radiation will be done. I am behaving myself specifically during the next 7 weeks or chemo and it's symptoms. For DANG sure!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

p.s. I adore those sunflowers on your pre-link, too!!!!

Sarah Coller said...

Wow! Yes, I'd love to win! I'd also like to participate in Castles, Crowns, & Cottages. My blog is called Hope In Every Season at http://www.hopeineveryseason.com. My daughter also wants to join. Her blog is Thoughts From a Young Writer at http://www.thoughtsfromayoungwriter.blogspot.com. Thanks!
