Midsummer in the Forest


She had always wanted a home of her own, a sweet sanctuary she could furnish with lovingly chosen things that didn't cost the earth. She wanted to create a small visual feast just for herself and to have things exactly how she wanted. So she found an old hunting cabin deep in the forest and transformed it into her little haven:


once a neglected old hunting hut, now
transformed with Victoriana and white paint

she made every square inch count, from the
bookshelves under the eaves to the
wire-front cupboards


a downy sleeping loft under the rafters

the simplest of arrangements: foliage from the
forest tucked into clear glass containers of all kinds

those raspberry colored mud boots could not be
more charming on the little front porch

see the enchanting story of how she used salvaged, found
things to create her tiny Victorian cottage in the Catskills on
a shoestring..it's a fascinating story!





perhaps a midsummer's celebration
in the forest? what shall we
choose for dessert?


apricot ice cream with
nut crust?

violette cassis ice cream?

petits choux?

berry meringue tarts with mint?

rhubarb sables with strawberries
and orange?

Bardot in Blue to translate them, she just finished school
in Paris last month!!)
