Puttering


The May picture from the BBC H&A calendar. Tranquility.


My summer blankets are coming out of hibernation. The big chunky eiderdowns and duvets are going to be put away after they are aired and their covers washed. I have quite a collection of the chenille/candlewick covers now I am thinking I may sell one or two. Greens and pinks are my favourite. The top one is a lovely pink but it looks white in the photo. I am also going to sell off some of my Cath Kidston/Ikea Rosali items this summer. Once I know how much I will need to send off with my daughter to university I will be doing a nice clear out. Waaaay too many linens in this house!



A touch of gardening but not nearly enough done.



Pansy love.


A wee tin I found in my travels and just liked it. I couldn't get the thing opened and it wasn't until I brought it home that I found a length of pink velvet ribbon inside!
**********
Did finally get the Prom dress. Beautiful strapless aubergine coloured full length gown with a bit of a train. Superb.
Now for shoes...

Oh how I love Chenille (or Candlewick as we call it) I also have too many but can't bring myself to cull them. Love your pale pink one. Gorgeous. Best wishes Pam

I had to come visit your blog because of the amusing comment you left on Barbara's blog. I am wondering who will be my fashion police once my daughter leaves for college in the fall? :)

We can't put our winter things away yet here in Maine, a cold snap has us scrambling for sweaters. And yours seem to beautiful to put away!
