this kind of day...

makes me wish we have a fireplace.
 and a wingback chair.

and a cozy aran sweater.

and a standing lamp by the chair.
if i could draw this or take a picture and post it, i would.
it's in my head.
sometimes that's a very frustrating thing, you know??

2:52pm, and i've just spent how much time--maybe 10-15 minutes, i don't know--drawing this in "paint" on my laptop.
after messing with it in my photoscape program, here it is: ^^
not too shabby, if i do say so myself.
could've done better with my hand and colored pencils. which gives me an idea, of course.

in other news, anna found this picture of gram earlier:
when she was younger, she traveled quite a bit. of course, she worked at the courthouse for 30-some years before that, but still. this picture is her in scotland. loch ness.
yes.
you read that right.
gram went somewhere gorgeous. somewhere european. somewhere famous.

here's an up-to-date picture by woodnote photography of the loch. their photos are stunning.
s.t.u.n.n.i.n.g.

painting today. a tiny canvas for lyddie. trying to listen to elenowen...

I think I adore you. I think I would like to sit and sip coffee and watch you paint. That sounds super relaxing:)

You are talented! I love the fireplace and wingback chair idea. Of course, I live in Florida and it's already over 80 degrees at 10 am on a May morning, so that might not be the most practical idea right now. :)

I came here through your comment on Scribbles 'n' Things.

Your dream space and my dream space would totally be BFFs. Absolutely gorgeous, Beka!!

And Loch Ness - and the entire town of Inverness - is on my top 5 list of places I have to take the girls when they're older. Loved Scotland SO much when I went! :)
