Framing a Landscape

I m a g i n e
The Bubble Bath Joy
With This Amazing View!
-
And that bathtub looks so comfy!
My friend Elizebeth and her husband have built a house,
and with these FRAMED landscapes,
who needs art on the walls?!?
-
(yikes!  I'm an artist, what am I saying?!?)


This is the view from their closet
YES I SAID CLOSET!

Every room in their house looks out upon
The Work of the Master Artist

 Gorgeous Skies
~ mountains and water off in the distance ~

 
And L I G H T fills every room

They worked with my husband in the design of the home.
He listened to what they wanted and drew the plans
and Elizebeth envisioned
W I N D O W S
to frame the landscapes

WHAT A GREAT POST....and when I saw that first ARCHED window with the tub, I thought to myself, "OH! I HAVE SEEN THIS PICTURE ON PINTEREST!" But no.....you had SHARED IT WITH ME! This is a wonderful photo that could easily be mistaken for a photo from any tumblr site! Oh dearest, Elizabeth really had a dream and it came true. What a great concept to frame the landscape...and yes, who needs art on the walls! YIKES for sure....not good for an artist! But when the MASTER ARTISAN provides the d├ęcor, you can only stand in AWE and stand up and praise His glorious skills....oh, it is Friday, let us REJOICE..love to ALL, Anita

I agree... no art needed. I am swooning over that last room! I would never leave my seat. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!! xo

Hello sweet Violet
I'm here once again admiring the beauty.
To me, this looks like British Columbia, Canada where my children were born, but I suppose it is not!!
What magnificent views your friend has. And to sit there and have coffee and know that your hubby planned all this on paper, HOW WONDERFUL.
I'm going to bed now. It's been a very sad day, but tomorrow looks brighter.
Thank you making my evening bright with your beauty.
Love Claudie

This is ONE MAGNIFICENT post....like a magazine article where we can just drift away on a lazy Sunday afternoon...and I think that is what I am going to do today....I CANNOT WAIT TO RESPOND TO YOUR EMAIL....Thank you dearest for visiting my post. I was quite busy yesterday and was not able to have fun blog hopping, as I usually love to do on Saturdays! Back later, Anita

Such a beautiful spot...and I am such a fan of big windows...that is why I fell in love with our home.

I love the idea of
that kind of openness
and framed views, if
you lived in just the
right spot. Wow! Since
we have neighbors,
I like the coziness of
drapes drawn shut at
night, but do open them
all to welcome the sun
in the morning!

Happy Monday,

xx Suzanne
