Well there you have it ...

WOW! It's September, can you believe it? It feels like August flew by ... in a big overheated airbus, but flew by none the less. Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll these last few days, you spoke, and I listened. Accordingly, you can expect to see these in the September blog line up:

Around the House with Artie Monday
Inspiring Spaces Tuesday
and
Vignette Fridays


I'll of course blog as often as I possibly can, filling in with all sorts of fun things - but these seem to be your favorites, and they'll be around for a good long while! In other news, I've been hard at work getting the house ready for Autumn pictures, and I have a few that I can show you today! This video was inspired by Scot and the adventures of tartanscot, who first published a video of his holiday home here.

Mine isn't nearly as great - but getting there! I'll be taking better pictures with better light soon, but I just had to give you a "sneak peak" tonight! Take a look:

And if you'd like to see more of CdlV in this format, please leave me a comment! See you Friday, for Vignette Fridays!

  2. Artie, I had to watch it three or four times to see everything. I love the gorgeous vase in the firebox. I remember you writing that the fireplace doesn't work (back when you were blogging about stacked wood) and I think this is a great way to fill it up beautifully - and not have to worry about all those pesky bugs. I love this, and hope you'll add to it and keep reposting. Maybe making the snips longer if you can ... so that we can really appreciate all of the beautiful things ... everything you do is just gorgeous! xoxo, KC

  25. Hi Artie, Thanks for coming by and saying lots of nice stuff about my guest room. :) I have watched your video now 3 or 4 times now and I just love your style. Kind of like eclectic-traditional. Very elegant.
    I love the idea of the video. I need to figure out how to do one of those.

    Good Job!

  26. Artie, Everything is just breath taking. The first thing that caught my eye was the vase in your fireplace. The whole room looked so warm and inviting! All I could think about was getting a throw and curling up with a book. Thanks so much for visiting and your kind comments. Hope you show us a little more of your wonderful talent soon.

  27. Artie, thanks for sharing! I LOVE this glimpse into your space -- it's warm, interesting, and oh-so-inviting. I want to sit in that room on a snow-flying night with a hot Irish coffee and just take in the atmosphere. Bravo.

  34. Lovely video. This space very much says 'welcome' with its warm tones and comfortable seating. I could be perfectly happy with a throw blanket and a good book by the fire (of course the beautiful vase would have to be removed!;-)
    Beautiful room!

  38. Love it Artie! Great job. I Can't wait to see more in this format. What's even nice about this format is that it allows you to be a little more creative with the images by narration,text,music & video footage to bring your readers closer to your vision and the other creative outlets that may have been inspirations behind it.
