Roses and good friends
I wondered how long it would be before Amie shared her new bed in front of the fire. I think it took a few hours before Mew found it. Amie and Mew share nearly everything, except Amie's cookies and at the moment Amie's most treasured possession, her bone given to her by Chops, our daughter's pup.
When the postman calls, I always know, he tends to bang the cottage gate shut. LOUDLY !
A kind of postman's knock.
I can't moan at him, he tends to bring me such great gifts through the posts.
The above quilt hanging is a belated Christmas present from Allie.......
I know when making something, you tend to put your heart and soul into making what ever it is your doing to make it perfect. This is... really perfect. Lots of love .......... goes into making something so Perfect.
Allie even has a bee on here, around the cottage garden there are bee boxes. At one time there even used to be a hammock... I have a Torbay palm too. No crab though. I have to go a couple of miles down the road, by the seashore to find them.
I think the boat might be to remind me, as if I need reminding, not to ever travel by boat ..... THANK YOU ALLIE ................... treasure, you and this perfect gift.
It's about time this blog had some colour on it....
This morning, there was the BANG again... ah ! postman's knock....
I have recently joined a very new blog.... Houseelf Doings.... you will love it....
This lady not only has flair, but she is very good at archaeological digs.
If I dig anything up in the garden around the cottage, I always know who to ask about it.
Another beautifully quilted square, made with love. I have to add here, to please Houseelf Doings that the square was designed by Stephanie of Loft Creations.
THANK YOU HOUSEELF DOINGS.
Digging time in the garden isn't far off.
Soggibottom is somewhere over the hill. I'm sure I have taken this view before !
There are many days during the year I stop and think how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful place in the world.
It might seem a bit bleak in early Spring, but I know why I live here. I love the seasons of the changing year.... no place better to be in Spring than Devon.
I just love living here.
This is only the start of the year, early Spring.
To be truthful, these are the one's that arrived just before Christmas. But to me, a lamb is a lamb. If it's fluffy, has four legs then it obviously needs feeding.
Valentines day on Monday.
I have been asked by a water nymph I know to say "he is a romantic at heart".
As for Amie and Mew.... Mew won.
Amie was lifted up into her normal place, to dream the day away.....
I'm going to be away from blogging for a few days.
Too many things to catch up with.
Hope you all have a fantastic Valentines day.
If you want a rose, then you can borrow one of mine.
BUT I WANT IT BACK ... x x x
Any time, I'm in no hurry.
