    Thank you for your something for the weekend posts. I always find a blog to add to my favorites, an item to add to my wishlist, things that allow me to smile and ideas to ponder.

    From a lot of your perfect home pictures, it looks like you might need to move to France… But I’ve been trying to keep my own ‘perfect home’ daydreaming in check recently – it can be so distracting, especially because that distraction is deliberately fed by magazines, TV, etc. We’re supposed to keep wanting wanting wanting, but that can disconnect us from the present and makes us feel constantly dissatisfied. My mother-out-law moved to a massive French farmhouse last year (from a very beautiful flat in this country), practically bankrupted herself decorating the entire place just how she wanted, and is now bored of it and talking about moving again – somewhere more elegant, somewhere with warmer weather… It’s not that I think we shouldn’t have dreams, but we need to know when they’re taking us away from what’s important now! (Also, we’re encouraged by our capitalist society to dream about material gains -what we want to have rather than what we want to do or know or be.) The Bach Flower Remedy Clematis is supposed to help with this…
