To clarify, Kathie Winkle is a designer of extremely awesome dinnerware from the mid century. See those pretty patterns in the collage above? That's Kathie Winkle. There is a cabinet filled to the brim of Kathie's cups, plates, bowls & platters at the Ackerman's house - which is where I spent the afternoon the other day. A delightful time filled with homemade pizza, desserts from the bakery, and good friends who are family. Oh, and dogs! Lots of cute dogs :)
I know it's a lot of photos and not many words, but can you blame me? Just look at the food, the dogs, and a girl playing the guitar! It sums up the awesomeness of the day :)
Plus, that last photo? It kills me! That's Gracie using Astrid's laptop to eyeball a young deer. Said young deer were scampering just a few feet from where I took these photos - sadly, not on the day I was there, so Astrid was showing me the photos she took of them. To live somewhere that gives you scenes of fawns nibbling in your yard makes me yearn to live in that somewhere!
Thank you Michele, Martin and Astrid (and Grace, Max & Nikki dogs) for hosting a lovely day full of smiles!
with deerful joy,
