Winter sunlight is so precious,
most especially streaming through the old plum tree...
The light through Lucy's window is so pretty & so precious.
An inspired combination...the very last of the strawberries combined with early tamarillos, laced with coconut sugar & gently simmered together...heavenly flavours!
My favourite little camelia Quintessence has returned.
Happily, the mandarins have arrived right on schedule.
Now the intriguing thing was that Samuel (now a teen ) went missing from home one afternoon late last year. He took himself off for a walk down the road & was gone by three hours before anyone picked up on his absence (he's a self-possessed & happy chap) . Somehow, he managed to find his way round the corner to Gracelands & he let himself in the door. After he'd been waiting in the foyer a while the girls asked Rob if he belonged to anyone..no one seemed to know. So they sat him down for dinner with all the oldies, happily kept an eye on him & called the Police. All was well in the end & he was retrieved & taken home by his very relieved mother (who just happens to love vintage too!)
And now, here was the same Samuel carefully wiping his feet & saying hello so nicely & having a lovely time visiting in Lucy with his mum & sister..ooh my heart melted.
I also made this one from a divine vintage barkcloth.
It takes a while to build up a stock pile of Lucy cushions!
Egged on by the man..WE sent for a few bits & pieces..
What will we do with it? Who knows, but this wallpaper is divine!
People donate the loveliest things down at the Hospice shop. Aren't these crysanthemums so bright & daffodilly cheerful!
We stopped our busy leaf raking & gutter clearing yesterday & shared a pot of tea at half past three.
I am thrilled with this little trio I found in the antique Centre in Napier last week for $20.
The tea tasted delicious & the company was perfect.
And your company has been such a delight too.
Thank you so much for popping in!!
