Photo from: Hooked On Houses Oh yes, I KNEW you could! I am being a bit of a copy cat today and posting a little like my beloved blog, Hooked On Houses. It is here that one dynamo of a lady named Julia shows us all manner of glorious spaces each day. Recently, she showed us a house that was very like the stunning home featured in the films, Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride II. Oh how I adore that home...inside and outside, it is a pure gem. A dream. A Hollywood fantasy. Well, today I saw that fantasy in the flesh, well, the plaster and paint so to speak. Ahem...just G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S. French and English country and oh so, oh so, me. Don'tcha thunk? Now, don't you think Bill should be a good boy and buy this little cottage for moi? Yes, I KNEW you would!

Uh huh, and, for a few dollars more, would I like the furnishings and bric a brac thrown in too? Why YES thank you!
I mean, we all know that Billy boy needs to do SOMETHING to repay me for his little faux pas recently. Right? Oh Billy.....now where IS that man. Grace? Look under the bed. Dan? Check the basement storage closet. Kipper? How about the attic crawl space...he has to be somewhere around here...
I hope your weekend is a sweet one. The weather here is beautiful and we have already been out and about. In for a bit and then, this evening, we are meeting up with some friends for dinner at a local Mexican restaurant. This family was stationed with us in upstate New York and it has been far too long since we last saw them!
Take care and stay well...be good to yourselves and smile!
Love and Hugs,
