What's In Your Bookcase?



Bookcases have always been a favorite feature in a home for me.
What better way to display books & art & a little bit of this and that . 






 I always marvel at how they are styled. 






Books are so interesting!
Chanel thought so...






Love the niche for the sofa with bookcases around them.
And they are red!






This is another interesting way to display books.






I can just imagine curling up in those chairs with a good book from those 
charming bookcases. 






Bookcases on either side of the fireplace are always cozy.  






Wallpapered bookcases around a door!
 Adore that look.






Banquets form the base of the wonderful bookcases.






Bookcases and cabinets make this room cozy.






OH, how I love these bookcases!






 The big map is wonderful. 






Isn't this just grand?






Bookcases around windows.

Above a door we find pictures and hats, surrounding the doorway in a bookcase.  
Dear readers,

 tell me which one of these is your favorite?

 



Love,




Peggy

Venice, Italy - Castles Crowns and Cottages, Europe: Simply Irresistible Link Party






http://wwwcastlescrownscottages.blogspot.com/ 



While I have been to Italy quite a few times,
I have never been to Venice.
I have always wanted to go but haven't!
Can you believe that?

Castles , Crowns & Cottage asked me to plan an imaginary trip.
So here goes- a trip to Venice!
Come along with me as I take us to Venice, Italy. 






I always imagined birds would fly upon my arrival. 






The canals are so beautiful. 
I would spend all day on them.



unknown



All the beautiful restaurants.



unknown



Gorgeous houses...



unknown



Gondola waiting.






Gondola ride.



unknown



Then there is the yummy food of Venice.
I would eat & drink my way through Italy.






 And enjoy the great coffee they serve.



unknown



Great looking shops.



unknown


 
And the gelato.



unknown



Okay this is a little creepy but hey, it is Venice.
They always have a Ball each year called the Mascheranda Masked Ball during the Venice Carnival.



unknown




The chic Italian police.



 



Brandolini, renovated by Tony Duquette & Hutton Wilkinson.
I would love to stay here.






This is soooo glorious.






Just look at the ceiling!






I am sure those windows look over the canal.
Those bed hangings are gorgeous.






Look at the detail on that chest!

This is the Venice I would love to visit and to stay in.



Love,



Peggy

Chairs I Love




 I have a thing about chairs.
OK, I am coming clean.
They all have personalities.
Below are some of my favorites.






Love this one!






The details on this chair are amazing.






OK, what could be better than this?
A monogram & a chair. 






Just love this one.






Another orange one! 
You think I love orange?






Each one is different!
I adore that.

Verde Envy






Green is one of my favorite colors.
Could be because I have red hair.
My mom was a red head and I inherited it.
Enjoy!
