The Third Week

Is it already 3 weeks since we moved in? We have lots of things ordered but I just have to be patient!
I did a little treasure hunting on Friday and bought this cute 1880's ale bottle with its marble stopper inside...looks nice in a sunny window
A new lamp from Freedom
Waiting at the Post Office a parcel from France...a vintage laundry bag from a Saint Porcain hospital....the ultimate recycling! Love the colour and perfect for storing my unused handbags
It is so wet and freezing outside Mr VL can't do much. He has bought home some hellebores to plant
and the first of our Japanese Maples and Prunus trees has begun to blossom

 The lemon tree is overloaded...and there are lemons on the ground everywhere

Rain sheeting down...the view from the back door
Another great book from my new library I'm reading in bed this morning!

  1. I always enjoy decorating a new space. Love how yours is coming along. x

  2. It sounds like you are slowly settling in to your new home and I'm glad you've had the opportunity for a little treasure hunting.

  3. The view is absolutely amazing - wow - just gorgeous!!!

  4. You guys seriously have the prettiest yard...And now I'm imagining a big beautiful lemon tree full of fruit...that sounds amazing!

  5. We move I'll be joining you in decorating... my problem I want it done yesterday:)

  6. What interesting treasures you have. I enjoyed visiting seeing each of them. Freezing? In Texas, we are still above 100 and no relief in sight.

  7. It is fun to decorate a new space, but it does take some time. I love that lamp! Thanks for sharing your thrifty finds at TTF.


I love to hear from you and appreciate your messages. Meg xx
