This beauty is Moon Mullens . . . proprietress of Rose Hill Manor
bed and breakfast of Index, Washington. We were
invited to her annual summer soiree, and
what an event it was--even in the
RAIN (what summer?!)!!
Word of caution: Have plenty of napkins handy to
catch the drool off your chin!!!
Moon has created garden *rooms* that left me feeling
absolutely captivated . . . and happily so!
Statues and fountains and gates . . . oh, my!!
Birdhouses and fences and patio tables . . . oh my!!!
Concrete and brick and iron . . . oh my!!!
Inside the house . . . you will be transported yet again!!!
Moon has been a great customer of mine over the years.
I can't say how rewarding it is to see treasures
from my trove included in her stunning
vignettes. Her combinations
are so artistic, no?!
Hold on a minute . . . sorry, I needed that napkin!!!
Chandelier LOVE!!! Moon is not
afraid of color--she's a
genius at mixing
At the same time, she manages to create soft, serene
spaces within feet of the color spots. WOW!
I could't resist capturing these darling little girls. Antique chair
and Apple iPad . . . but of course!!!!
. . . beyond adorable!!!
Mountain and forest views from the windows,
perfectly framed-in-vintage everywhere!
This Chinese lamp with lace thrown over the
shade is fascinating at night!
Words not needed whatsoever . . . !
After the gardens, the house tour, the exquisite food and
fabulous punches (in antique bowls of course),
the music brought down the house!
Sorry no picture of Beth Whitney (acoustic), but this
photo is 20 Riverside--I couldn't sit still!!

Moon and Marvin, THANKS SO MUCH for an absolutely
unforgettable evening. We loved being with you!!
