Tiffany Terracotta and Tags

I have been away for the weekend to my little retreat in the North Cotswolds.
The weather was beautiful and it was so nice to take my Mum & Dad away with us for some quality time together. This week is my parents 66th Wedding Anniversay and it is also our 28th Wedding Anniversary on the 14th February - Valentines Day
Whilst we were out for another spot of shopping, I saw this beautiful little Tiffany lamp, perfect for a corner of my kitchen.
It did not take much to convince Hub that he should buy it, after all it could be my anniversary present sorted!
I have a passion for lamps and candles

This Terracotta one bought on our recent trip to the New Forest is probably supposed to go in the garden but found it's new home on the wall of my dining room.


And for Second's
Tag's
A special friendship that I found through Blogging

has invited me to do this tag.
Archive Meme Instructions: Go back through your archives and post the links to your five favorite blog posts that you’ve written. … but there is a catch: Link 1 must be about family. Link 2 must be about friends. Link 3 must be about yourself, who you are… what you’re all about. Link 4 must be about something you love. Link 5 can be anything you choose. This is good fun and gives us all a chance to read the archive posts and leave more comments!

Happy Anniversary Katherine!
Just finished doing the meme. It was fun! No need to think LOL
I`m keeping your blog open so when I get a chance to come back I can go and read your meme. Slow computer connection and rushing off to work soon doesn`t mix well.

Hi Carol. What a charming home you have in the Cotswolds. How lucky you are to be able to have a home there to get away to.
Congratulations on your anniversary and congratulations to your parents too.
Thanks for the tag, but I'm going to pass. Are you allowed to do that? I've only been blogging a short time and I don't have much of a repertoire to draw on. Hope you have a great day.

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS said...

Hi Carol, I just love the look of Cotswold architecture, what a lovely retreat to have. I think double congratulations are in order, happy anniversary to both of you and your mum and dad, certainly makes Valentines an extra special day in your household. You love your home, and I think lamps and candles make a home feel warm and cosy. x
