18th Century Vicarage in Lincolnshire

I found these lovely pics in the magazine Period Living. I am a sucker for florals, especially roses. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Blessings, Jacqui

Lost and Found

My Son and his lovely wife were devastated when their gorgeous Ragdoll kitty went missing a month ago. A search was started with posters and answers to 'sightings' etc. As they live in London, and the Olympics were on it would have been traumatizing for any lost animal with all the bustle and noise. Anyway, exactly four weeks to the day, a kind lady handed Nea the kitty into the local vet, having found her in the bushes in Richmond Park. She is skinny and full of debris but sooooo happy to be home.
Poor Nea all scraggy!

There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage and some wisdom, blended in measure. If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

New Season, new ideas for my bedroom

As Spring is at last approaching, I am re-thinking my bedroom decor. It is very white at the moment. I am thinking more roses, pinks, and some blue to set it off. I have found some ideas.

I follow a lovely site called 'Green Renaissance' - and because I am busy planting my Spring flowers, I was drawn to the pictures of unusual gardens and planting ideas. What do you think?
