When turning to page 123 I came to the chapter on “Victorian Outdoors“.
Page 123 reads after the first 5 sentences~~
“Outside, find new spots for wicker furniture, which moves effortlessly from sitting room to veranda. Plump up wicker chairs with soft cushions in pretty floral prints. Top a well-aged and weathered table with a lacy white tablecloth and an assortment of favorite things, all arranged for an afternoon’s refreshment or teatime snack.”
A pretty setting from the pages of "Victorian Chic"
“A sun-filled breakfast room, an inviting screened-in porch, a charming potting shed, a rose-covered gazebo-these are all examples of a Victorian outdoor “garden room,” designed with the simple pleasures of life in mind. Regardless of their size, shape, or location, areas in the garden are all spaces of delight. Here, one can entertain family, talk away the hours with friends, or sit quietly alone, all the while surrounded by the sights, scents, and sounds of the garden.”
“Your next excursion may be to a quaint cottage filled with sunshine near the ocean, or a holiday in rustic alpine cabin surrounded by drifts of white snow and the scent of pine. Perhaps business demands a weekend in an uncomfortable hotel room. No matter where your travels take you. Or how long you’ll be gone, it is easy to pack along beloved treasures that bring friendly remembrances of home, to make anyplace you find yourself more familiar and cozy.”
This is a wonderful book that I highly recommend. Perhaps you can find it in bookstore or on eBay.
