A Lazy Coastal Lunch ..... Our "Romantic Pergola" and all sorts .......

|

Hi All

We have been having the most amazing weather over here .......

A Lazy Coastal Lunch

It was simply too hard to resist - so my best Chum and I played hooky one afternoon and treated ourselves to a fab late lunch at a nearby coastal pub we both love ....

We are so lucky to live close to the shore .... I took this shot  just outside the little pub ..... I truly never take this stuff for granted .....

You will see that I didn't leave much of the crab claws ... 

Quite deeelish :)

Romantic Pergola

Our present home is a mid century home that was due to be demolished to make way for an apartment block .... but thankfully, that plan fell through !!

When we bought it, it had been lying empty for quite a while and was a bit "sad" inside and out ......  

So anyways - I mentioned in a recent blog that we were beginning to turn our thoughts to the garden .... there is a serious amount of work still to do ..... but there is one little area which we already enjoy ....

When we bought the house this area was a complete wilderness - we didn't engage a landscape gardener or anything like that ..... we simply asked our builders to do "a wee tidy up and create a path" ..... sorry I don't have a "before" pic.

So I said to them - "now Guys - please don't annihilate the Clematis" ....... is it just me or have any of you ladies discovered that blokes seem to have a tendency to be a touch "snipper happy" once they're let loose in the garden with a pair of shears ?????  ..... Me - I tend to like gardens that are a little bit overgrown and not too manicured .....

So after a while I wandered outside with tea and bikkies .......... to see our lovely burly builders, arms folded, admiring their handiwork .....  

"Aww Guys - that's perfect" says I .....

"s'nice" says the main man .....

"s'romantic" says his mate ....

So there we three stood happily slurping our tea and munching our Hobnobs - in our "romantic" setting !!

Happy Bunnies :)

I see some wild fern has just popped up - am loving it !!

Lene Bjerre

We are already getting low on some of our beautiful Lene Bjerre stock so I have just placed a big order - including some gorgeous new things :)

A few folk have commented on the lovely labels - I think it's that sort of attention to detail that makes for such a lovely gift perhaps ??

These beautiful napkins would make a particularly nice present I think .....

Or this gorgeous tall candle stick perhaps ....

Beautiful Wash Bags etc

Talking of gifts, we stock these really beautiful wash bags and make-up bags  ...... made from 100% English linen with a unique hand pulled screen print, they are a little bit different and special I feel ...

We have just received a new delivery - swans on a gorgeous grey linen background .....

We will be photographing these and adding them to the site soon.

Our New Home Page .... and the versatility of Hamam towels ....

I hope you like our latest home page - very summery!!

Hamam towels feature quite a bit ..... they are just soooo versatile ...... and can be used as table cloths ...

Like so .....

Or on the beach ......

 

 

Or in the bathroom 

They are flying out the door at the minute !!

Well folks, I think that's all from me for now - I'm off to have a cuppa under our "Romantic" Pergola :)

 

Take Care
