I have surprised myself!!

Hello everyone!

Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!

I have a dislike of the colour yellow, and, by association I dislike orange and green.  Now I have seen two rooms that I really like,  and they are green and yellow!

The green room is from Better Homes and Gardens, and the yellow room is from Country Living.

I really like them!!

A Valentine's Day amble through my town

The day rose crisp and bright under a winter's sun,  eliciting a happy urge to venture outdoors to see what was going on on St Valentine's Day in  my town.  It was alive with people,  enjoying the break in the weather,  gentlemen looking embarrassed while searching for roses for their wives.  Women shopping, children skipping.  A mime artist standing stock still like a statue,  a harpist playing music from Heaven. The sea was like glass, and the fading and rusting Victorian esplanade even looked chipper over a calm and blue ocean.

The little boutiques were resplendent in their Valentine colours.  Here is a sample of my little walk...

End of winter blues

I have the end of Winter blues.  My soul is longing for the beginning of Spring,  when the flowers pop their heads up and say hello to the world,  the squirrels scurry about the park with luminous eyes.  The foxes forage about,  and the world is full of birdsong.  I have a camera sans batteries at the moment,  so I will just tell you what I am searching for...a cloche,  a large bunch of lavender, and some inspiration!  On that note I will scurry off to look at your blogs to get the inspiration!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Softly, softly

Better Homes and Gardens are featuring colour at the moment,  I love the soft blues they have used,  what do you think?

And some unusual bathrooms that take my fancy, a little luxury, a little quirkiness (love it)!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday

Ooooh  love it

Oh, by the way,  can anyone tell me what a mud-room is?


To my Friends and Family in Queensland, Australia,  our thoughts and prayers are with you....
