I do love a good auction, there is the casual looking around at the auction preview, rummaging for something special, then the thrill of the auction itself.
On a visit to Scotney Castle Garden in Kent I found ten things that made me smile, obviously there were lots more but these were some of my favourites.
Today I am liking these beautiful handbags designed by Tamara Fogle, they are so nice and sooooooo expensive. Aghhhhhhhh a person can dream!
I am drawn to old and faded it would seem in most things, including flowers!
In my last blog I was telling you to look up, now I'm telling you to look back, especially at the back of flowers and leaves, they can be just as spectacular as the front, sometimes even more so.
I found this house today whilst searching for a way to improve my house. It belonged to Nancy Fishelson, she is a restorer of houses, and is amazing at turning an old house, sympathetically, into a comfortable modern home. The house is a 1795 clapboard house on 20 acres in Woodbury, Connecticut, New England. This is the house in it's original form.
