Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

The master bedroom at Linderhof was papered ages ago.     We like the paper and the fact that a friend of ours papered it for a friend of hers.     Long before we became the keepers of Linderhof.

I spend early morning hours at the computer in the adjacent sunroom.    And every morning . . . 

I am awed by the "sepia" tone of our bedroom.    The only color being a small "pop" of pink on the loveseat at the foot of the bed.

It's a tone on tone sort of room and I think the early morning light emphasizes that.    I especially like the master bedroom in the hours just after the sun has come up.

And early morning, too, is a good time to bake.    For we've been having triple digits on the prairie.
Friend and fellow blogger, Pat, from On Crooked Creek, shared a recipe for banana bread from On Crooked Creek a few days ago.  

It makes two loaves -- I especially like that with banana bread . . . or you can do as Pat did and make one loaf and six muffins.

One loaf was a gift.    The other was wrapped and put in the freezer in case I had poets for tea again!

I adore your "Sepia" toned bedroom. I always felt that the Master Bedroom @ Linderhof was meant for Royality! Each time I was allowed to enter the room was such a treat for me!!! Today, dear friend, I felt that same excitement as I viewed through your lens the regalness of the room! Thank you for sharing Linderhof in all her refinement with all of us!
P.S. Thanks for the mention... You're going to love the bread!

I've always loved the arrangement of your bedroom. The colour is a complement to the restful atmosphere you've created.

I used to be a big fan of bold colors, but as I approach my golden years, I love the quietude of neutrals, and so find your bedroom to be lovely.
