This will be my only post today. I have been busy in the garden and doing other bits and pieces. I would like to share this great book i have discovered called the Velvet Pears by Susan Southam. Its full of fantastic illustrations and an interesting story about how she discovered herself living in a cottage that she had admired for a long time. I wont tell you too much in case you would like to read it for yourself. A few shots of the bedroom. The linen is available through my store and is a product from Villa Maison. The cushion is from a friends left overs from their curtains.

Our new little delight, Massie. We love her to bits such a character, caught her looking out of the front rooms window; she loves loves being outside, and believe it or not rounds up sheep. It is the funniest thing you have ever seen. She is as cute as she looks in this photo

Not the best photo, but this is my latest restoration job. I bought the Louis carver at Auction; it was covered in smelly tapestry which i will wash a re-use and make into maybe a big carry bag with Belgium linen. I recovered the back with linen and vintage studs which i had and then stenciled Paris on the back.....i love this see it heaps in recent mags. Tell me what you think?

This is a similar tapestry which i also washed and had framed in a rustic gold guilt frame. Lots of work and i must say i like the muted colours that they used to use. I will show you my bag when i finish it . Maybe a while always too many ideas in my head and not enough time.

Your carver is beautiful and your room looks serene. I was reading an article about Velvet Pears recently and the photos look amazing....your little dog is too cute.
