An Award

An Award from my lovely friend Kristina and now 7 things about me.....
1. I really enjoy Blogging, it has opened a whole new world of friends.

    2. I love the sea and a rocky or pebble beach the best, with rock pools and sea glass and driftwood to keep me busy hunting them out.

    3. I enjoy my home and everything in it and to do with it, except housework of course!

    4. My garden is a passion, it makes me de-stress.

    5. I go mad if I cannot find things, I have to be tidy and orderly, even if in the process the place is in chaos trying to achieve it!

    6. I love to laugh.... and do giggle a lot with my friends and family. I try to see the funny side!

    7. I have to have a clean bed with feather pillows and duvet, white linen or crisp cotton sheets and pillow cases and now a new feather mattress topper - which if you do not have one, is pure heaven to sleep on!

    I am going to pass this award on to....

And this is my latest shelf, Shaker style. I wanted it painted in a dark colour as everything else gets painted in various shades of Farrow & Ball whites or the palest blues!

Hi Carol Thanks for the award! Wow! So I presume I put it on my blog. Then do I have to tell 7 things about myself? and how many do I have to pass it on to? Is that the music from Out Of Africa on your blog? I love that movie.I sure am full of questions aren't I?

Hi Carol,

I love your blog! Your home and garden are so gorgeous, as are all of your photos. I spent almost a year in England some time back and it is a magical place. I want to go back soon and bring my daughter. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

Glad to see you back...nice to learn new things about our friends...ever noticed how sound seems to be amplified when your head (ear down) is snuggled into a feather pillow? I have a down comforter and a handmade quilt that keeps me warm and snug...but I love sleeping on flannel!!!

Hello Carol
A lovely award for a lovely lady...
Thank you for all your support and friendship.. it has been so much appreciated these last three months since I started blogging.
I have to agree with you about order... I feel so uncomfortable in myself if my house is a mess..
I hope we can share a giggle or two next year.
Much love

Hi Carol, congrats on your Award! It's hice to learn more about you, gosh we are the same in a lot of aspects...the bed linen, love white and crisp, we had a feather topper but the sharp point of the feathers kept poking though and it was torture! Hubby hated it!! LOL Shelf is gorgeous :) Hugs, Jenn and Jacqui xo

Hi Jan & Jacqui,
Ah I know what you mean about little pricks from the feathers! lol......
This topper is a super douper one fron John Lewis with special duck down covering layer and cotton layer.....so no little pricks in my bed!
Have a great day....
Carol xx
