Sunshine Sunday

It was a spectacular, sunny, autumnal Sunday yesterday; the perfect day for a trip to the beach. GJ and Mr GJ have acquired a beach house and they invited some friends to come and help celebrate their moving in. Who could resist such an offer?

Such a lovely welcome, just inside the door.

20150323-162448.jpgThere’s already a quilt on the couch

20150323-162529.jpgand a sewing caddy…….with supplies!

20150323-162638.jpgThe garden is well established

20150323-162942.jpgAnd speaking of food, we were well fed with delicious anti-pasto

20150323-163058.jpgand I can’t wait for Winter when we’ll be able to sit in front of the open fire to sew!

    How Fun! I saw pics of the beach house on GJs IG account but didn’t know that you were there? (Or I missed it if I did LOL.) I’m busy drooling over THAT. QUILT. We MUST see it unfurled!!!!

    Whaaaat ?? You do love a friend with a beach house ??? 😉
    But yessss, I agree with you and Mr and Mrs GJ are very good hostesses (or intertainers ?) !!

  7. Lucky you then, to have two friends with beach houses (ok ours isn’t strictly a beach house, but close enough!!) It all looks fabulous, and as always the food looks delicious!

    It all looks idyllic! I love the “hello” and beautiful nasturtiums, and every time I see those sewing caddys I wonder why didn’t I get one. 🙂
