Everything's looking 'Rosy'
Trying out her bed, later moved to our room.
Now she is fast asleep at my feet after a morning of exploring the house and the garden, she's met the chickens and strangely they are scared of her!! They must think she's a little rat. Sophie is quickly getting used to her and Toby thinks she's just another little animal for him to watch from the distance. Archie is unsure, he's never known a dog smaller than him and is just baffled!!
Back with more pictures of our new cutie next week, in the meantime have a lovely weekend.

Weather ! !
Between us we managed to get the back of the house looking like this, a bit bare but tidier and much safer to walk on. The two cast iron bench-ends are a bargain Lovely Hubby picked up and are awaiting some new slats of hardwood to make us a lovely seat to sit on at the back of the house......we have BIG plans for this area.

Polytunnel progress - ongoing!
Sophie is still obsessed with the new arrivals and is constantly running round and round their Eglu, I think she will be fine once they are out and about and she can have a good sniff, but we can't let them free yet, they are still so small, and with Archie the hunting cat and the Red Kites and Buzzards they wouldn't stand a chance.
Gratuitous shot of handsome son and gorgeous Sophie.
Have a lovely day.

Royal Mail I love You!!
And lastly, the nicest thing to arrive in the post was this beautiful little girl below. Bought from the lovely Nicky at The Vintage Magpie.
When I went to the Vintage and Handmade Fair, I had limited funds (haha...not what LH would call them) and had to make the choice between a gorgeous ragdoll 'Ruby' from Nicky at Nostalgia at the Stonehouse and a teddy wearing a little cream cardigan from The Vintage Magpies' gorgeous stall. My mind flashed to the beautiful little rabbit that resided on Nickys webshop, so at the fair I chose the doll, knowing on my return I could order this lovely little girl.
So Rosie is now sitting quietly after her long journey taking in all the new sights and sounds of this madhouse, when she is suitable acclimatised she will take up residence with a VERY special little friend that is just 'itching' to meet her! All will be revealed!!

Farmers Markets in the middle of Nowhere....
I met a lovely lady who immediately on arriving home sent me an email containing a list of craft fairs for the run up to Christmas, some that she organises and some that friends of hers do, so no more wind swept car parks for me. I shall be making bookings for indoor craft fairs, in cosy village halls and see how my lovely lavender goodies go down there.
