Sunday in Greece...

Simple, beautiful, ancient and gorgeous

Lazy, Sunday lounging, reading the paper, drinking coffee...
Yes, please - I'd like to be right here, right now.

But those shutters would have to be wide open
- all the time -


Why would anyone ever shut them with that view on the other side?

Beautiful, beautiful blog. Those Greece shots remind me of one of my favorite movies,"Shirley Valentine". I always thought I could live in one small room on a Grecian beach but now I want the rooms with a view on your post. Heaven.

Nope - never! Well, unless it was raining, then maybe I'd have them a little close. Hrmm, no upon closer investigation - NO! Open all the time! (Since there is NO WINTER in Greece!) No wonder they're so beautiful and tan all the time. MUST.MOVE! Love these pictures, did you take them yourself!? ;)

This is Designer Paola Navone's house in Greece right? I just love the mix of whites, fabrics and stones/rocks. The place is just so calming.

Good Morning Isa,

Although Hawaii has always been my favorite place to visit, after seeing a movie (don't remember the name) I would love a trip to Greece. In the movie, all the buildings were white, trimmed in a beautiful blue. The memory of the beauty still lingers in my mind. The pictures you posted renew my desire to visit that beautiful country.

Hugs
'D'
