Do you dress your beds for the season?
Mr. PV was born in Frankfurt so we took a trip a few years ago to visit the house where he lived
and in addition, a few castles across the winter countryside
and I wondered how those queens made it through the night in such frigid accommodations!
Upstairs at 822 (on the North side)
Charles and Jena's room
They are dog fans and he's been a hunter since he was a little boy
Mr. PV's great aunt painted this picture
in 1909 when she was 13
the colors and the subject became the theme for their
cozy little nest upstairs
lots of fuzzy pillows and toile
I made a pair of pillows from Mr. PV's great grandmother's mink stole
(her name was Baboo)
lots of feminine layers mixed with masculine colors
a stack of wood next to the fireplace
beams, brick, old books and
The Church At Abique
(New Mexico...it really does exist..near where Georgia O'Keefe lived)
In our Choctaw tribe we are
the turtle clan
right there..just right there is the tiny little bath
can you see the original deco lamp swags?
When Charles was a little boy, he made sure I had a rock collection
and to this day, I have the rocks he thought were pretty enough to give me
he brought me one last summer
this bed won't change because I love how
cozy and warm this room feels just like it is
with one last lingering day
of old man winter
I really liked going up there and thinking how I would have made it through
if I were a queen!
