a new beginning.....!

Did the new adventure start when I drove to a neighbouring town?
Did it start the first time I left the house to spend a weekend with family?
or did it start when we entertained for the first time?

That's the day we are going with, and, as Gregoir took some really beautiful photos
we thought we would share them with you

Pieces that have been stored in the cottage,

hidden in the garage

pillows that grace the spare beds
were all dragged out of hiding

and set up on the side verandah

the gifted flowers were an appreciated touch of beauty

and with the ongoing rain the Jade decided it would not be put in the shade and shot up straight and tall

The food took forever and was unbelievably simple (I will have to practice again)
thank goodness for friends who brought a plate!

We did start small with just six guests and the three of us but it made for a jolly group

it wasn't quite on the scale of this but it is a start!

The adventures will continue


  1. Julienne, I am so excited about your new adventure and look forward to reading your post!! I adore your blog title, One Pink Chair and read about it below.

  5. Dear, dear Julienne!

    I LOVE THAT BENCH! And the other pieces are so wonderful. I see you have no snow. We just got our first real snow late yesterday and what a magical moment it is when it first hits. In March, we will be complaining about it, but for now, for this moment, the magic is special. THANK YOU FOR YOUR lovely, lovely comment. I always tell my students that WE WRITE TO MOVE OUR AUDIENCE: cry, laugh, think!!!!

    Many blessings to you, Anita

  11. Julienne - thank you for taking the time to write me. I am so relieved you are blogging and I love the name 'one pink chair'. Perhaps I need to reinvent myself and let go of the past? Your outdoor space is huge with charm and what I would give to have such an inviting space to entertain and enjoy friends. I think your next adventure is going to be a great one!

    Here's to new beginnings!
