We were so fortunate to have a mild February day so that we could sketch outside in the gardens of another lovely home on Whidbey Island. The house is tucked in between giant trees and a beautiful water view. A small stream next to the house makes peaceful gurgling sounds and begs you to cross the bridge and sit still. When I closed my eyes to listen better, the magic intensified.
Inside, as I warmed by the fire, there were equally interesting things to see. The owners say they found perfect places for all of the treasures they have collected over 40 years together.
