This and That

I've been busy getting back into the swing of things from my vacation but thought I'd share with you some of my weekend before getting back into normal postings (more Paris and other house tours!). I stopped by my favorite shop in DC, ArtisanLamp (antique lighting fixtures and lamps), where I picked up a number of fixtures for a project. They're soon to be expecting a new shipment of antique fixtures from France as well as the semi-annual sale so be sure to stop by!
The weather couldn't have been better and I spent Sunday visiting local real estate open houses, discovering some hidden neighborhoods that were real gems!
 I loved these antique fixtures flanking the frontdoor of an old stone bungalow.
I pass this house in Georgetown everyday and just love the climbing roses growing over their front railings. This time of year DC is a gardener's paradise with roses exploding throughout the city.
I can't decide if I like it better by day or night! What were you up to this holiday weekend?

Climbing roses are beautiful! I need some to cover an ugly wall. One of these days I will make it into Artisan lamps.

I think I like the day the best... with a bit of trellis... I do love a trellis. Great looking lighting store... will be fun to see what the container brings from across the pond!!

I love the Georgetown house! How perfect. Glad you had a relaxing weekend.

It's such an easy thing to do, plant climbers, and yet so few of us ever think of it much less take the time to actually do it.
