I'm spending the day cleaning things up a bit and puttering. Puttering is a favorite past-time at My Petite Maison. Puttering is always relaxing to me, you too? I could putter forever, I think and be really happy at it. One of my favorite times to putter is late at night, when my family's in bed, safe & sound and I'm happy as a bug in a rug... just moving items around & around.

Wanted to share a couple photos of the light, or lack of it in my indoor studio today. We're having really warm (hot) weather today, because of the heat, I'm keeping the shades closed as much as I can, even though I savor natural sunlight that usually flows all through My Petite Maison in Wine Country.
Pippi Rose is keeping me company today while Bechet takes naps. She loves my feminine, white tufted chair, as do I.
Here's a better photo, now that she's come out a bit to see what I'm up to and what I'm moving around:
The little stuffed dog is a toy we brought back for Zeke when we were in Italy. We found it in a cheese shop and I had to bring it to him. I think the lady that sold it to us was very sad to see it go, she was so sweet about it though - nice people all over the world, you know?
Speaking of nice people, we attended our town flea market last weekend and met two new French women that sell antiques. I purchased a few things for my store and a few things for our Maison too. We almost missed the faire, I was thinking it was this upcoming weekend. It truly couldn't have been more perfect stumbling onto the show and meeting up with old friends and meeting new contacts too. We even met a nice couple with two Great Pyrenees there as well. Some days, I just feel the Sun in shining on me, saying this is your day, go for it! Love it!
I've been able to add to my long time obsession of café au lait bowls. I think I'm going to need a bigger kitchen, but honestly love the charm of my Paris sized one here that spills out to the gardens.

One more shot (these are all from my iPhone, spur of the moment)... hope you don't mind.
|Some of my favorites, the 2 gold & white larges ones from the 1930s France. Never seen others like them.|
Hope you're having good days and getting some puttering in your days as well.
PS... I will be adding new items to My Petite Maison the week after the long Labor Day weekend.
