Perched on the edge of Lake Muskoka, Ontario,
A heavenly hammock swings between a pair of perfectly placed trees in the garden of our friend’s charming old cottage.
It just doesn’t get much better than this.
I’ll spare the Jim Croce song, but “If I could save time in a bottle…”
This would definitely be one of those times.
BTW, have you ever been to Lake Muskoka or the Lake Region of eastern Canada?
This is how beautiful it is. For miles and miles and miles. No filter, plain & simple.
Put it on your list.
But once again, I digress…
I told you I was still putting up a hammock post.
I could possibly have saved this for my “Indigo” post-which, in my timely fashion, should debut just before Christmas.
Cause I know when one hears the word “Christmas” one instantly thinks Indigo!
But for real, who doesn’t adore the promise of a cozy hammock with all the dreamy, romantic emotions they evoke?
A macramé cocoon twisting gently from the creaky ceiling of a sleeping porch, a mattress ticking pillow, Hudson Bay blanket thrown over the edge and a great book nestled within?
or perhaps it’s more
Robinson Crusoe meets Swiss Family Robinson with Johnny Depp lurking behind the nearest palm tree, whittling you a coconut vessel from which to sip your rum. Together.
Hey, It’s all good, Matey
At the other end of the spectrum…
This romantic vignette helped inspire my English Country Garden Tastemaker Tag Sale on “One King’s Lane” last week.
I also think it’s awfully fun to hang a hammock indoors, given the right setting, don’t you?
I’ve never done it, but never say never, though I think they’re especially great in a young person’s abode.
Lots of dash for little cash.
Besides,extricating one’s self from a hammock can take some
manuoevering manuveouring effort.
I love this photo, but I’m sure I’d have that basket weave deeply imprinted on my entire body for the rest of the day.
Ahh, once again, the ageing process…
it’s a beautiful thing.

Here’s one sporting my favourite combo of black & white, plus a handy thick rug placed strategically underneath for a two-martini roll out.

I’ll take two, on either side of the fireplace thank you very much.
And a most charming turn on a nautical hammock, a vintage boat brought indoors.
Don’t you just love creative people?!

Or the perfect old school hammock swinging gently above the olive groves of Greece.
Pass the feta please.
Tropical, indoor, old school or space age
Let’s face it. Hammocks rock.

Paging Fletcher Christian…
Here’s to sweet languorous dreams of a life lived slowly…
But only 9 more months ’til next summer!
Australia-you’re not even allowed to say a thing right now!
Happy September All
