Blues, Whites, & an old tin bucket x

I do love the colours in the gorgeous flower bouquets I have dotted around our home at the moment.
Blues, White and Greens always look so wonderful together, a really lovely vibrant, fresh colour combination.
At this time of year we all need a colour hit as outside tends to be a little brown and grey outside, so beautiful Spring blooms give you a sense of something to look forward to.
The snowdrops now are also showing their little faces all around the garden & verges.
Still a while off before we have the wonderful colour hit of Spring outside, so for the time being I have Spring in doors.
I especially love using old tin buckets and the silvery grey of the tin really compliments this pretty colour scheme.
November just gone, we planted over 2,500 Spring Bulbs in and around our land so this year hopefully should be a riot of colour.
Beautiful Spring & all its wonderful colour, one of my favourite times of the year.

Happy Happy Days ! x

What a wonderful week this has been.
Not only are all the bulbs shooting up in the garden and in the verges but we have had the best news ever with regard to our lovely home.
I bought my little cottage 7 years ago, it was in a very sorry state and had been empty for a couple of years and was totally neglected, damp and un loved.
However I could see what a beautiful spot this sub standard little house was in and I could see that one day it had the possibility of being a beautiful family home.
After a long old planning process and taking our first planning refusal to Appeal, we found out this week that we have in fact been granted planning permission for our beautiful stone, oak and Welsh slate home.
We are so delighted that the Appeal Officer saw exactly what we are trying to achieve and has granted us permission.
What better way to celebrate than with Spring Flowers, the whole house is now full to the brim with beautifully scented Hyacinths.
I am so delighted to now have our dream come true, as I believe this beautiful spot deserves a beautiful house.
Happy Days !

Beautiful Vintage Trinket Box

Happy New Year Everyone !
What a wonderful start to the year it has been so far, so many exciting things are happening and lots to look forward to.
I had to share with you a recent gorgeous little find of mine, this adorable French antique trinket box.
The little satin blue cushion inside is in such wonderful condition considering its age, and there is only the smallest little chink in one of the glass panels.
Such a pretty little treasure .... I adore it.
I hope you all had a wonderful start to the New Year, and I hope that 2012 is a wonderful happy New Year for you all.
