My parents just left to return to Louisiana. I'm just now getting around to catching up with myself.
I want to thank you for sharing your mountain home with us last week. We made it there just in time to see the vibrancy of the leaves, some snow flurries, swirling winds, and then leaves floating around and falling to the ground towards the end of our stay. We went to Brevard, Mills River, and Asheville. We ate well, enjoyed the charm of Historic Downtown Brevard, and we snuggled around a fire inside for the last 2 days and nights. The view was beautiful, and the house provided for us all that we needed plus some. My parents and my husband were able to leave the city behind, relax, and breathe in some peaceful mountain air. So, thank you.
We LOVE the cabin decor… beautiful quilt work, all of the iris references, the "bear" signs and all the thoughtful and special personal touches. I have to say that one of my favorite pieces was on the terrace deck. The "chandelier" over the table was brilliant. I can see that you both make every attempt to honor your mountain space and your life there with your creations. Plus we enjoyed your sense of humor. That kind of living really resonates with us.
I know you will find your mountain home in good condition when you return. My father buffed inside the oven glass with ashes from the previous fire (who knew?) so we could enjoy the flames with the doors closed. We can all learn something from the previous generation.
Peace, health & blessings
