This Week's Update

It was another stinking hot week here and I can't wait for Autumn to arrive. I walked up to the Salvo's on one slightly cooler morning.
I found a great white  ironstone tureen and a couple of recipe books
Mr Postman didn't let the heat stop him from delivering a couple of goodies I found from scouring the world for rockbottom priced books for my Victorian red binding book display
Morning sun in our entrance hall
Picking herbs from the vegetable garden
Friday Lunch with fresh figs, proscuitto,feta,basil with honey and mustard ,olive oil dressing

  12. Your clematis is so pretty. I've not had success growing them, but I keep trying.

    1. I could never grow it either ,then I married a horticulturist and he can grow anything anywhere Sarah

  13. Wow, your books are so gorgeous! I totally love the look! You are lucky to be entering fall. I'm not at all looking forward to summer. I'm definitely a cold weather girl!
