So many updates, so little time...

In typical Knitty, Vintage and Rosy style, I am a little late with yet another post. This is the H&A Calendar I have been meaning to show you. Really gorgeous.
I especially love this room. Pink, Blue and florals, what is not to love?
This was January. Again, more love.

And February. Reminds me of Selina Lake styling. What do you think? So terribly pretty though.

Oh, that's Knitty, Vintage and Rosy styling. Ha! Just loved the look of this combination on the window sill and thought I would take a few snaps although, of course, the light is still rubbish today.

For some reason, I adore these four pieces together. The Greengate jug, the Cath Kidston jug, the little green cornishware sugar pot and the oval rose plate.

Sweetness in a jug.

Doing a load of dishes from last night as we had a little get together for DN3 12th Birthday. I know, I know I must me getting up there if my youngest is 12 right? I've been a little sad lately too as the billet (girl that was staying with us from my daughter's hockey team) that was living here moved out last week. She decided to move back home so she could graduate with her class. It hits too close to home knowing that DN2 is leaving my little Rosy nest in August to go away to University. Do you ever just block things out of your mind just to totally avoid the emotions? That is what I am doing right now.

So to perk you and I up, a few glamour shots of the puss.

As he is male, and spring is nearing, he isn't really around too much. I think he has a few, no correction, hordes of lady friends that want to have a liaison with him, if you know what I mean, wink wink.

He is a fighter as well. Comes home with a new injury every day. This week it is on his right front leg and one on his tummy. The ones on his nose have just finished healing.
So he appears to be a lover AND a fighter.
No wonder they are lined up at the back door for him.

Thanks for popping in my lovelies.

Little Mr. Boots there is very handsome and so it's no wonder that he's got a following.

The photos of your own window sill are scrumptious! I like them best of all.

Yes, I often play the denial game. Sad really. Don't worry, though, only good things ahead and you'd not have it any other way!

Lovely pics, as always! How great is that country, rustic, scandi looking entry? I want to live there! Love all the pretties in your home as well -- always looks so inviting and cozy. Speaking of cozy, hope you're staying cozy and warm up there in the north!
Blessings,

Thank you for your comments re those socks I've just finished. Yes, I do know of the Trekking yarn and think that some I recently ordered must might eventually get shipped to me.

This post of yours is a gem. It's just got a really good atmosphere. I do look forward to getting back for another visit soon.

Cheers!

Oops I have the same calendar and I haven't turned the page!
Your windowsill display is really lovely ... and so is Mr. Boots(according to a furry "girl" on my lap gazing in adoration at his handsome face)

Anna said...

So much prettiness in one post! I love your windowsill collection too. In the calendar pic, it is the riding boots that I am lusting over most!
