Your house is so eclectic. Love that. Happy weekend Linda.

Drawn to The Sea said...

Looking at these, I'm thinking "she's so exotic".... then comes the last photo & I think "she's got a very tender side".

Vix said...

Better a bit than nothing, but you know we're up for a heaping handful!

You do "collected" so, so well.

Makes me feel I am way too sparse, and that's a neat trick given my possession-a-phobia...but overall you permit so much breathing room I don't just want to admire, I want to move in. Let me know when there's a vacancy....

ps Big Butt Chair looks like s/he has been there forever. [That's the point, I know!]

Centsational Girl said...

Lovely! I enjoyed this never before seen peek into your world, still swooning over your chair!

Every home should have a copy of I Married Adventure, and a guitar to prove it!

Thanks for the peek inside your home. It's lovely. There are many elements that would fit right in my home...like the pineapple painting!!! I love the old(?) Florida landscape. It reminds me of a Highwayman painting. Is it?

Happy weekend.

Fun vignettes, Linda!

Sniff said...

Oh..how I would love to sit in that big comfy chair under that pineapple painting. Such an inviting corner for a bit of relaxation.

Visual Vamp said...

Love all your bits. And pieces.

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Such an artful home! I'm loving the vintage postcards.

Laurie Jones said...

So beautiful, lived in and living with beautiful meaningful objects, you're a lucky girl!!

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Y'all are so NICE!I just love ya to pieces! Although I laugh when I hear the term lived in. I always think it is the polite way for saying..."What a frickin' mess!!"

:)....guilty as charged!

Yvonne...No I did not paint the painting above ole big butt! That would be painted by local (and quite celebrated) artist Ginny Piech Street!

Jane..the other painting (what you thought was a florida landscape) is actually from a Hudson River painter George Inness. It was one of his last (when his sight was quite bad) that is why it is so blurry and foggy for a Hudson River Painting. One of my faves...bought it while I was in college.

Sharon said...

Simply Beautiful! I like how you included a statue of a big black dog...
Thanks for sharing:)

Renee Finberg said...

There's my pineapple painting again!! I told you it was beautiful! Just remember I said I loved it first!!!

Your home looks so interesting and inviting, a place where I would want a friend to live so I could visit.

I'm especially loving the 'big butt corner'! and that lampshade on your hab. for hum. lamp (?think that's where you got that jewel?)is perfect!!!

Lisa said...

Ok....the curve of the guitar against the curve of the chest is very sexy and the brass reading lamp picture is just beautiful...it's all beautiful. Your house if so full of life and living. Those are the best!
Maybe I will do this. A little peek here and there might not intimidate me too much I mean geeeze have you seen the gorgeous way in which so many talented bloggers live!?! xo

Linda,
These were all so good! You have great style. The one with 'big butt" and the fantastic artwork was my favorite!!!

simpledaisy said...

Your home looks so gorgeous!

niartist said...

Oh Linda, thank you for linking these up to Vignette Fridays. I'm sorry I'm just now getting around to see them ... but now I'm salivating and I'm sorry I don't have a napkin! LOL! Everytime I come here I see one more thing that I HAVE to have! Pillows, chairs ... you name it! Thanks again, and I hope you link up again next week! :)

katiedid said...

I love looking at the bits of your life. They all add up to one very interesting lady!

Rhonda Roo said...

coconut LOVE. I think i could sit and contemplate lovely things at your casa for days {while you bring me a martini, hostess} and then go outside and absorb myself with the tropical atmosphere (while you bring me fancy drink with the umbrella in it}.

OR we could skip the drink..and just go shopping. :) you find the bestest stuff.
