Worth a Second Look

Outdoor dining with wood table and chairs lush greenery canopy, image from Axel Vervoordt's Timeless Interiors, edited by lb for linenandlavender.net (l&l)

I've shared this image before, but it really caught my eye today as I was browsing around.  Maybe it is because it is yet another beautiful sunny day here in Southern California and once again, the bluest of skies.  It was the ideal temperature to have my cappuccino outside at our wood trestle table this morning -embraced by our immense stone fireplace with the sun filtering through the vines.  The gurgling fountain and birds chirping away...I spent a perfectly blissful hour reflecting on happy times spent there and looking forward to those to come -alfresco dinner parties and celebrations of milestones in our lives-  good times.



This image courtesy of Veranda Magazine, a feature on Axel Vervoordt's estate.   Also worth a second look is the rest of the original post: {Axel Vervoordt: Openduerdagen} -Beautiful images now enlarged due to linen and lavender's  recent format change!
