{Gone Fishing..just for today }

PLEASE
No calls today.....no time to chat

I am taking the whole day off
Putting up my feet....reading from dawn to dusk
stuffing my brain with loveliness


Just received a package in the mail
from my sweet friend
A few special magazines from the
Netherlands
{we did a magazine exchange....so so fun...
Saskia may be preoccupied for awhile too}
Don't you just love
summer
good friends
and
days when you can hang that
Gone Fishing
Sign
on your front door
and pretend that no ones home

Oh how I'd love to have a day like that, but it's not something that ever happens around here. Maybe someday it will, but not now. Enjoy your day!

Hi Koralee! One of my best friends in the world is from New Zealand, and she usually tucks a NZ mag in my Christmas present. What a treat! I always make a big production of preparing tea and sitting down to savor both it and the magazine!
Hope you have a lovely day of fishing and dreaming! xx Suzanne

I think we should all go for this kind of fishing at least once a month, every month. Well I'm happy happy fishing right now. It's evening, the living room is all mine, your pretties are next to me and my brain is off to be stuffed with loveliness, Canadian loveliness. Sending Dutch hugs your way for a lovely fishing day. xx Thank you once again for all the FUN, always! xxxx

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

THIS SOUNDS LIKE A LOAD OF FUN!!! I sat still yesterday for about 2 hours straight...it was lovely. With a magazine in one hand, a French book in the other and a décor book waiting for my attention, I just whiled away those precious 2 hours before Dr. Ruben my husband came barreling in shouting, "LET'S GO TO HOME DEPOT!, our local home improvement store!

ENJOY! Anita

Maria said...

Wonderful, Koralee !!!
Enjoy your time "fishing."
I guess you're "fishing for time."
:D

I have a cross stitch project I just picked up {from over a year with no progress} and just did my stitching for 2 hours... no interruptions!
Loved it!

Enjoy your time~

Hello Koralee,

I was surprised to see that Dutch magazine At Home at your picture, and I must admit I'm pretty much addicted to interior magazines from other countries too! :-) We have a shop in Amsterdam where they sell loads of them. Tempting...

Ariadne At Home is quite popular in blog land, I see it pretty often in other blogs. In the May issue was an interview with me, with lots of photos of our interior!

Thank you for your sweet comment yesterday!

Love from Amsterdam!

Not Just a Waitress said...

Lydia said...

Those magazines look like such fun! And the raspberry jam is tempting me to check ours outside in the 98 degree heat, haha:)
