Happy Monday and My Trip To The Wine Country!

Hello there! Hope you have missed me, because I sure have :) I got back last night after a four day vacation to Washington's Wine Country.  Seattle lies west of a mountain range called the Cascades. To reach the wine country, we had to cross over the Cascades to get to the Eastern corner of the state.

Eastern Washington's climate and the geography is completely different from where we are. This region is arid and lies in a rain shadow. The wine country drive was spectacular, with rolling hills dotted with vineyards. While we did enjoy the wine and the picturesque vineyards, what made it special was that we went there with my parents :) 

It was a fun, old fashioned road trip, the kind that makes me smile whenever I think about it :)

A detailed post with pictures from my trip will be up on the blog soon. On that happy note, here's wishing you a great week ahead. I also have an exciting Giveaway coming up tomorrow for all of you. I promise you will love it :)

Stay tuned..............

A Splash of Aqua Here and There!

The MDC casa is showing off splashes of Aqua here and there :) Its my favorite color especially in summer. I have little knick-knacks in this color all over my home. The pretty tea light holder was a gift from my favorite cousin! A few plants here and there, and I am all set for summer. However, at the moment we seem to be going through a cold wave :) 

My parents arrived a few days ago. This time is so special. I love watching my kids interact with them. Getting spoilt and pampered is the theme for the next few months. Its not just the kids but Mr MDC and I, are both enjoying the benefits :) Its a time for endless chit-chats, love, laughter, summer drives and creating memories! 

Here's wishing you a wonderful week ahead!

A Beautifully Restored Home in Ibiza

My love affair with Spain continues:) Today I am taking you to the home of a British art and jewelry designer in Ibiza, Span.

Read on to know about the fascinating journey of this home! The present owner found this crumbling ruin in the lanes of the old city and decided to convert it into a summer home! Sigh! One of the major challenges faced during the restoration of the building was to save the old courtyards and terraces. The home is a tribute to the owner's love for gardening and the eclectic spirit of Ibiza. The stunning artifacts and gorgeous textiles from the owners many travels look perfect against the white washed walls.

Oh! I could happily get lost in this house and not want to leave :) To view pictures of the entire house, click HERE!
