we are experiencing continuing problems accessing the
Splenderosa Shop
it may ask for a password,
if so the password is


loving the black, the pedestal & lampshades lined in gold, the little benches 
& the circles on the floor.
loving the recessed lighting,
& the amethyst slab on the table.

the spareness & the opulence

the one below is very much the same in feeling,
softened by the orchids & the drapery.

narrow spaces made very important.

we have come out of the artic blast on this lovely Saturday morning,
the sun is out so it looks like Texas again.

but on Tuesday it will all return with a vengence they say.

the question:  do I un-frostcloth the plants or not?

big hugs to you, my loves...



  1. I just love hallways like that. I wish we had one.

  2. Marsha, Loved these photos. I'd love to have gorgeous hallway with black and white tiles, so gorgeous. Hope you are staying warm there. It's been crazy weather here and supposed to get warmer next week,.. We may be burning up here in California..Have a good weekend! xo Kim

  3. Dear Marsha,
    I adore that second hallway. So much beautiful detail in such a a narrow space. Black and white floors are my favorite!! As Kim mentioned, we are not getting winter here in the SF Bay Area. It's disturbing to think about the fires we have coming our way next summer.
    I'm hoping the package got delivered safely! Did it arrive? Enjoy your weekend. xoJennifer

    1. Jennifer, yes the parcel did arrive safely. Thank you so much for doing this.
      I heard that there was a 100 degree diffference in temps between California & Boston?????
      How is this possible?
      Sending love, JC...

  4. Hi Marsha And pls send me the second hallway over(: as it is a complete heaven and I would just walk back and forth in a pretty dress(: ty detail and it being so narrow with that mystery gorgeous doors at the one end....xo, z

  5. Leave the plants covered up……….Tuesday will be here in a FLASH!
    Ps.I would only wear to the grocery store that FAB outfit as that is the only place I go!!!I have a feeling the woman in TEXAS dress better then the woman OUT WEST!Amazing what they think they can get away with!SAD actually.Flip Flops and exercise pants with short tops that do not cover the bump!Either you see the underwear or the crack!Such a lovely sight…………I wonder do they ever look in a mirror!!

  6. That last hallway is breath taking! Love this post!


  7. The pictures are phenomenal! Love the black and the gold..always have! Thanks for stopping by recently..I agree, I don't take magazines anymore…I read what they send us for advertising at the shop. Not much in there anymore except Birmingham Home and Garden and Traditional Home from what I can see. My parents are headed your way Thursday…hope all is thawed out by then! Take care!
