My treat to myself...


"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." - Anne Bradstreet

Yay, the latest issue of Country Living is out, and its got a lot of great kitchens in it this month...I love the article on page 126 - "A gift for Thrift".The lady who's home is featured in this article is very interesting, running a business from a Victorian desk in the guest room and shopping at flea markets and boot sales...sounds like the life to me!
Her home is filled with second-hand goods and also a few Greengate dishtowels and cups...it all blends together beautifully and has such character.
The Country Living magazine is my indulgence, I usually get a copy and sit at the local coffee shop,while the kids are at school and relax.Such bliss!

Hello!
I found you through Posy's blog and popped over to say hello - your blog is wonderful.
I loved the latest edition of CL too, the lady featured in the Gift for Thrift article has a wonderful shop in my home town of Bridport, Dorset, ooo I spend an embarassingly long time browsing in there! I'm sure you'd love it - check out her website too:
