My only warning... be sure to give yourself plenty of time to peruse. Because if you're like me, you'll intend to sit down a do a quick scan, only to find yourself 45 minutes later still swooning.
Now, on to Kifus' 10 Things...
The last thing I do before bed: Watch cartoons with my hubby.
Favorite thing about my house: The house itself, it's really old and gorgeous. And I have to add the windmill in our garden.
The best place to be in the spring: Paris, with hubby and daughter.
My signature dish: Lemon cheesecake. They like it so much at home that I make it twice a week.
When I need to unwind: I get into bed with a hot water bottle (my feet are always cold!) and read a book.
Celebrity crush: Johnny Precious Depp.
On Sunday mornings you'll find me: Blogging!
I could spend the whole day: Surfing the net and playing computer games (shh, don't tell my kids!)
I feel my prettiest when: I don't know why but it is when I'm driving!
It's worth the splurge: Fresh flowers. Not so much of a splurge but I make a point of buying them almost every week. Nothing makes your rooms look more appealing and welcoming than flowers.

Kifus -- keep up the amazing work! You continue to razzle and dazzle with the great house tours and photos you post. And thanks to Inspiring Interiors, I've a file full of ideas for my next house! Also, do you think you might want to share that cheesecake recipe with us? I can't stop thinking about it... That, and Johnny Depp. ;)

Family and friends are on their way, bringing with them stories and laughter and compliments to the cook. Dishes will be passed, each bite savored. Anyone for seconds? Growling tummies are long forgotten. With glad smiles on their faces and maybe a few top buttons undone, all sit contentedly around the table.
But for now, all is quiet.

I sure would love to see all of this in my closet!
(I never heard of Madewell, until I read about it on Cup of Jo. Thanks, Joanna!)
