but prints are rare.
Hermes scarves are where the prints come into play.
Did you know that Hermes recommend that you refrain from wearing their silk scarves in the rain?
These Hermes scarves are just a few from my collection of scarves...
I love scarves for their ability to add colour and flair to the plain and simple garments that I own.
Seeing as how we are talking about charming prints I'd like to show you my most recent purchase...
fasten your seatbelts...they are kind of wild!
I found a pair of what I can only describe as "party pants" with soft orange roses on a black background.
You might be laughing...as they are rather a departure from my usual restrained and conservative clothes.
They have an elastic band at the waist and at the bottom of the pants they are gathered in, rather like harem pants!
They are made of a very light polyester and will roll easily in the carry on and the big bonus is that they will not crease...I bought them at Target at their closing out sale for $15.00.
I plan to take these to Paris and will wear them as PJ bottoms when I am in the city of light and when I travel south I will have the option of wearing them as pants.
I've planned to get a spa pedicure before I leave and will opt for an orange or coral polish.
Lands' End coral cashmere cardigan and simple pearls...
A basic black tank top and the cardigan will make great partners.
The colours are such a tonic right now...our weather has been so gloomy and wet.
I took this picture a year or so ago...
Heart shaped puddle.
Summer Humble Bungalow rose...Jacob's Coat.
Chihuly Gardens in Seattle Washington
love the punch of orange!
I've been busy in the kitchen making pots of soups.
I love having a big pot of something hot and nutritious simmering on the stove.
Dinner is easy when it's a hearty soup and then there are leftovers for lunches
and you can pop some in the freezer for future use.
They are wonderful to share...
I have taken some to the home of a friend who is going through a tough time.
Soups are comforting...
like a warm hug.
I enjoy the simple act of chopping the vegetables.
The repetition feels very therapeutic....
rather meditative and a perfect rainy day activity.
Rainy walks are much nicer when one has a cheerful umbrella.
I love this shade of green.
Beware! Death Cap mushrooms.
Patterns on the grey concrete stairs that go down to the beach...
When I get home there will be a soup simmering on the stove
Humble Bungalow greetings to you all from the very wet west coast...
Hope that you have a lovely weekend!
