Live Artfully

I received my first issue of Galerie Magazine yesterday. The Spring issue. The magazine was launched in 2016, I believe, and the present Editor-in-Chief is Margaret Russell, the former editor of Elle Décor and Architectural Digest.

According to promotional literature, Galerie Magazine "is a quarterly publication that engages readers who have a passion for art and design. Its distinctive coverage informs and inspires—delivering the finest in art, interiors, and architecture, plus compelling creative talents and fascinating destinations."

It is inspiring and informative.

Here I am holding my copy in our living room. The photo color is a bit off---it was dark and raining; but don't worry, I am about to share some photos of our home.



Why? Because of the magazine's Tagline which is "Live Artfully." I just love this and it so reflects the way my wife, Susan, and I live with our dog, Freddy, a mini-labradoodle, and out cat, Nadine, a calico.



Now that you met the children, let's talk about how we Live Artfully;


There is the kitchen table
round, a place
of gratitude
of grace
Thank You God
for these gifts before us


The food before us


The many books


The art



The colors  on the walls






The bathroom


The office

The Dining Room


The flowers and our garden




Doing our best to live our lives Artfully!
Cheers!

The Beautiful Daisy

I love Daisies.
I recently learned that the Daisy is the Birth Month flower for April.
The Daisy conveys innocence, loyal love, and purity. Yet, it is also a flower given between friends to keep a secret; the daisy means “I’ll never tell.”  
They are often known as a token of affection.
Here in Massachusetts, however, we are months away from seeing them bloom in our gardens.
But there are photos:

Hello. It's Me.

I am back.
This is me and Freddy, a mini-labradoodle, just the other day working in my garden.


I have a lot of catching up to do with you and I hope to share with you some past events and some current events.

Stay tuned. Please.
