A Big Galvanized Bucket of Geraniums 

Flower Friday brings us an overflowing bucket of white geraniums. As the photo shoot came to a close last evening, and we packed up to leave, these made me so gleeful as I looked back while heading up the staircase to the car. Many flowers & plants get purchased for the shoot, as you are not sure how and where they will fit in. I am happy to report that we used every single bloom and pot in some shot. The geraniums proved tricky, as there were quite a few pots of them. I woke up yesterday morning and my mind raced right to an oversized galvanized bucket we had up in the shed. It would be the perfect vessel for all of them to snuggle up next to one another. They completed the shot of the dining table just perfectly. Can’t wait for you all to see it when the magazine comes out. A lovely, lovely week-end to each and everyone of you dear readers around the globe. Sending much, much love, Ted



 

 

Prep Days

The last few days have been a buzz of activity at our beloved WestWard. Country Living magazine asked if they could shoot our place with an entertaining bent, since they know how much we like hosting a dinner party. So it has been a cleaning, planting, playing with flowers few days to get everything ready. Prep days. In a few hours a group of talented folks from around the country will descend on our beach place for a 2 day shoot. The entire process of a photo shoot is quite something else. The level of detail, the smallest detail, is of great consideration–which if you are a regular reader of my blog, is a concept near & dear to my heart. It will be such fun! I call WestWard ‘the little house that could’ as this will be the 6th time it has been featured in a publication or design show. It is just filled with things we love, our #1 design advice, always. Extra added bonus, fingers crossed, the weather forecast is for 2 days of sun! More details to follow in the coming months…
