Lovely June

Right on time again! The June picture from the BBC Homes and Antiques Magazine. The only thing I am not quite sure about is the silver spotlight lamp. But everything else, beautiful.

Did you see the May issue of Country Living? A wonderful spread on Rachel Ashwell designs. Stunning wallpaper.

And this egg blue chest with the flowers! Where does she find this stuff? I want to visit the sales she visits.

Oh, to dream.

And the most charming garden.

How many years must it take to establish this glorious wisteria?
Prom was simply wonderful. My daughter's dress was the perfect one for her and she had a fabulous time. The only thing is, it is one more step towards...................leaving.

Why do we love Shabby Chic so much? I just can never get too much for that Racheal Ashwell!!! Hugs for a wonderful sun filled day. xoxoxo


OMG! I just love all the photo's, I wish we all could go on a junkin trip with the Queen of Shabby Chic. I have loved the look for so long and I am finally bringing some of it to play in my home. I can not get enough of her books. Thanks for the post. I am now a new follower of your lovely blog please stop by. XO MARY

I didn't see the lamp until you mentioned it and then I agreed with you...it seems out of place in that room. So glad that your daughter's prom went perfectly and that she had a lovely dress. Ahhh, the stuff of memories. Leaving is hard, but it's all good. Trust us older gals who know such things. ;>

Gorgeous rooms and gardens - if only :-) Glad your daughters prom went well - must be scary/sad when they get nearer leaving :-(

Thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog.

Those little lampshades are from Laura Ashley. I actually bought them years ago (when I was at College), prior to owning the vintage chandelier. I also have a set in blue, but sadly there are only four shades, not five.

Your blog is so pretty.
I hope you are having a lovely day!

Lovely, inspiring photos!
My daughter is graduating too. Hard to think of them leaving.

Love the living room (and all the others too). I'm dithering over what to do in my living room - all the furniture needs reupholstering -- and I think this might be just the inspiration I needed to get going!
And isn't it true, after all these years, I also still love Shabby Chic!?
