Freya Rose Blossom's portrait.

It's such a pleasure to show a new addition heading for Soggibottom's cottage wall.
Freya Rose Blossom's portrait painted by our very talented friend Caroline.

This is exactly the way Freya looks when she sits in the back seat of our car in her own special place, strapped in safely. Freya tends to look straight ahead, so she can see the road in front.

Freya's portrait isn't the only art we have that was painted by Caroline.
This is a portrait of Mew, our dear ol tabby cat.
I struggle with a paint brush to paint a wall which makes me rather envious of all artists who have such talent. Caroline has more of her beautiful art over on her blog Uniqart.

Update about the new flood relief water course. As you can see it's coming along. So much for the dead line of it all taking 16 weeks. It started way back in February we are well past the dead line.  Even we can see things are at last taking shape now.

We take every opportunity to escape the noise and dust especially when the sun shines. Last week we headed on over to one of our favorite beaches Slapton Sands.  No dust, no noise, perfect bliss with only the sound of gentle waves lapping the beach.

Instead of driving home along the country lanes we called into Dartmouth to catch the ferry home.

Although Freya is strapped in she can still move around enough to catch sight of any ponies that we might pass or the sights that can be seen when half way across the river Dart on the car ferry.

Freya can be found over at the Cat Flap Cavalier as usual. This week she is advertising a very bespoke beach front property in South Devon.

Hope everyone has a great August Bank Holiday. We have one extra day of peace and quiet and are making the most of it :-) xxx

Oh my gosh- what a beautiful Portrait of Freya Rose Blossom!
The artist Caroline captured Freya's personality and her spirit! This portrait is beyond amazing, and also the portrait of Mew.
Oh we know you are so proud to hang these on your wall!

The beach where you go is sooo beautiful. Its great that your getaway is not too far away- and you can escape at times until the peacefulness at Soggibottom returns- and it will someday!

That is beautiful! I really want someday (sigh I keep saying it) to get a painting of my dogs. You would think with all the photos I take I have at least gotten a large one printed... not.

*Cough* Frankie and I are waiting for his portrait you know!
