Thank you for these beautiful images. It is a distraction form the horrible images on the news. There is so much devastation it is almost unbelievable. I feel so bad. Have a beautiful weekend, Marsha! XO, Pinky

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Good morning, Marsha! Each room is just lovely. I am partial to Carmel California for that is where I went on my honeymoon and the fairytale cottages there have a special place in my heart!

Enjoy your weekend! Anita

I never get tired of seeing such stunning places.

Sorry I've been so quiet of late first major amounts of work and then the storm and no electricity for a week but we're one of the lucky ones.

Enjoy your weekkend!

Imagine my surprise when cruising through your wonderful website (and store) to see a photo of a home in Carmel! We actually live in Pebble Beach, but close enough. Beautiful home, as are all the others. Thanks for filling my morning with sunshine; though the sun is out for it's usual 10 minutes here right now.

Great blog, I love all your posts/pictures.
