Last weekend I was invited to brunch at my friends new home! She and her husband built an incredible modern glass house in the hills over here. The yard goes on and on with multiple levels of lush greenery. So many flowering plants and a gorgeous pepper tree. The space is so relaxing and open. Her husband is an artist, and designed branch like wood cut outs that adorn the roof top covered in glass. I have always loved having family style brunch with bowls of fruit, pancakes and vases of fresh flowers. It made me want to grow up & move someday...perhaps even aspire to garden.
Her darling son Dove helped show me around. He's created hallway wall art throughout the place. He also showed me how you can take a bowl and fill it with buckets of water and toss it on the bathroom rug. After that he made the mistake of taking an heirloom bowl and dropping it on the ground to shatter it. That didn't go over so well.
Lucky for his parents I happened to show up for brunch with a bowl as a housewarming gift. His mom said she would wait til he was 15 before putting it out on the coffee table. He still has the face of an angel
