Life has been so full for me lately, and one of the soulful things I got to do last week was to visit the timeless and beautiful New Mexico farmhouse of my friend Charlie.
It felt like crossing a threshold through time.
If you have spent much time in the New Mexico countryside, you can attest to the authenticity of this often austere landscape. The Rio Grande is not far in the distance, and with the arrival of spring a bit of green will soon appear along the riverbanks.
But now, some of you wanted to see more of this fabulous coverlet that I only gave you a peek of in my last post. So this morning I threw it over my bed to have a better look at it myself.
It blends well with my newer vintage-look pillowcases from Ikea.
And has fabulous crochet insets and trim.
A few ivory folds cascade over the end of the bed. . .
with another lace throw to add a little sumptuousness to my Sunday morning whims.
I also rediscovered some monogrammed initials at the center of the coverlet that I had long forgotten about. I'm often not sure what the letters actually are, but find them beautiful just the same. Is that lower one an "I" ?
If only these lovelies had a farmhouse of their own to lay claim to!
Meanwhile, back at the ranch. . . .
If only our spring winds would be over for awhile!
There are a few tumbling tumbleweeds still to go before it's over.
Have a great week ahead!
