The promised pictures....and I got a present!!

The lovely little cast iron fireplace in our bedroom, formerly white now a lovely black, as it would have been originally. Playing around with flowers and pictures around the fireplace. Our lovely new floral M & S bedding on our new 5ft oak bed. Next purchase required - bedside tables! Gorgeous deep red textured curtains. The picture on the wall next to them is called 'The Clandestine Marriage' ......... bought just before ours!! (For information on that look on my old Blog! Link at the top of this one.) Just a few snippets of how the room is coming together, I'm sure there will be more tweaking and adding to, but it's feeling like home and it was lovely to surprise Hubby when he came in from work last night (he thought we were doing it over the weekend). In return he surprised me today, when after a day of working hard in the field, clearing overgrown bushes and weeds and trimming back the trees he surprised me with a present of a pile of old tyres. might think that's romantic, but, believe it or not, it's just what I wanted. We are going to use them as planters 2 or 3 deep for some of the early crops of veggies until we can get all the veggie beds organised. We also had a very productive meeting today with the lovely couple we are renting the farm off, going over all our plans for the land and the outbuildings and we have got the go ahead to do everything we wanted. So all is well on the farm tonight and the weekend looms happily ahead. We are off to a local Farmers Market in the morning and then we will be clearing around the house and planting up some of our smaller pots. Hope you have a good weekend too Sue xx


  1. Can't wait to see what you do with the tires or should I say 'tyres?'

  2. Hi there, love the fireplaces, I agree that black is the way to go!
    Enjoy rest of weekend
