I have been coveting a covered back deck lately and I have been looking at how to arrange it with the existing roof line. I found this lovely Newport Beach House which goes a large way towards illustrating the look I am after. She is currently for sale, maybe we should just move.
Strawberry and basil are a combination commonly used in jam, so why not in a salad? This strawberry and basil combo is another one that made it onto our Easter lunch table and it was so tangy and lovely, severed as part of a BBQ buffet.
Beautiful beautiful Entally House via Launceston Tasmania. I can never resist the lure of an historic home. I linger longer in each room, willing the walls to talk. I imagine the family sitting around the dining table and doing what families do. History and home are my thing. I just love to see how people once lived and I find their stories fascinating. I wonder what is the secret to their success and how they acquired such wealth. Usually damned hard work and a bit of luck, it seems. A bit of crime never seems to have hurt them either.
Hi I'm Carolyn coming to you from a sweet little beach house on Sydney's Northern Beaches. Desire Empire is my passion and I love all things vintage, interiors, food, travel and family. Come and join me on my journey in paradise.
