Last night was such a beautiful night to sit out on the porch at Frog Hollow Farm with a glass of wine and some delicious appetizers. The air temperature was just right and the most beautiful waning harvest moon was peeking over the treetops at the back of the south field. Even with the brightness of that moon it was pretty dark outside and our little porch, lit with a few small candles and lanterns, seemed like it's own little world, safe and sound from any harm.
FHFB had been wallpapering our dining room for most of the day and it was time to kick back and relax. We've chosen the Herndon Straw pattern from Thibaut's Chelsea collection. The image from the Thibaut website is a little blurry but I have to tell you that the paper looks just beautiful on the walls!
(Have I ever told you that FHFB is the most expert wallpaperer in the world?)

I'm still studying for my NCED exam in early November but found time to have lunch at our local Brew Pub last week with Bunny, a fabulously talented woman and owner of The Paris House Designs.
It was such a pleasure to meet her and chat for awhile, and she brought me the most gorgeous gift of several MOR beauty products - MOR is proudly Australian and recognized globally for its range of innovative, luxurious pampering body care and lifestyle products.
