Equine and English Country Decor Books




 Hi there!
Come on in 
and make yourself comfy
as they say.

Cup of tea?
A nice book to read?



YES,
a nice book to read.

I was dusting my living room
this morning and had
to move around piles of books 
to include some of my
collected equine decor books.

(I realized this is something 
I have yet to blog about!)

So here are a few 
of my favorites

Image screening




Just got back from a
wonderful long weekend trip 
to the Gulf coast of Florida -- 
visiting family there!

Came home to a new snowfall --
spring is unpredictable as usual
here in the Midwest.







It was raining yesterday morning 
in Florida and I snapped a few shots 
of this camphor tree
through a screened door.








The tree became somewhat
pixelated and the images
reminded me of needlepoint
or a tapestry.

Kind of fun, right?
