New Horizons


Florence is looking out on her new horizon…….as you know we currently live as far from the sea that you can get in England (The Cotswolds), and due to a change of circumstances and the offer of a Farm cottage, this Friday we, Michael, Florence maybe Tom & the Doglets and myself are moving to …………Dorset!


We are looking forward to spending our summer evenings here, perhaps even swimming as we did one evening last summer.

Lily doglet will love it as she is a great swimmer, Florence will paddle and I expect Sako will go mad!!


So we will be on our big adventure, be ready for lots of pics and info about this great County………

Green means go



If you are thinking that I have had a rush on buying green, you would be right, but all of the green pieces are my own colleted over many years, they have been in storage for a few months and now that we are moving on I decided that I must let them go……..

This morning Flo had a surprise!
We then had to drive to Chepstow where it was pouring with rain,
and then on the way home it was lovely sunshine!!
When will we be doing this again??

Station Mill Yesterday..

I have a small spot at Station Mill and would love to do “less is more”, I plan to do so, but it never quite works!
This week I have brought in a few more pieces of small furniture and my love, a few bits of garden stuff, a blue ladder and children’s chairs, a beautiful green wirework planter, a pair of Danish oars and some very bright vintage fabric a lovely sky blue with yellow tulips….more springlike?20130107_114732
As always there are lots of lovely items in stock throughout the shop….I seem to have been particularly drawn to sofas and cupboards this week!

First January buys


Not such an early start, however it was pitch black when we arrived, Why are the mornings so dark at the moment?

Anyway first buy, a pair of framed educational prints, just as light was breaking through, I never buy in the dark it is when mistakes occur but I knew that these wouldn’t be there too long…I also bought a fabulous set of industrial drawers….these items will be making there way to Dairy House soon.

On our way back, we popped into a little upmarket junk shop that has recently opened near to where we live. I go in nearly everyday as Martyn that owns it is always bringing new stock in.

I went to collect this teaset,  although I don’t usually buy them, with Spring just around the corner I felt compelled, he did have the most beautiful Victorian one in fine white bone china with a molded design and pale blue floral decoration but by the time I phoned him back it was sold……if you see it buy it….he who hesitates….


OBVIOUSLY I didn’t just collect the teaset, he had brought in a nice pair of oars, what is a girl to do??????

Off to Malvern tomorrow to hopefully fill the van, and then next week a trip to Station Mill and one to Dairy House.

Oh I love the Spring….busy, busy, busy.

On a bright, sunny Cotswold New Years Day morning, what else is one to do, other than take three lovely girls for a walk through the woods?!



“Come on everyone” says Lily


Blown over in the storms but still very beautiful


Lily says “come on, we’ve done the woods, just up Dover’s Hill now”!


Two happy doglets on the way home.

Things are a changing again this year, but what a lovely way to start it off.
