In the mists and magic.................


Surfing in the waves..............

sea-weeds 

A magical house..........


and  gardens.

Hidden windows....

the trees reach in through the door.............

do the woodland creatures live here...........

and do they tip toe into the cottage in the night...............




We have just arrived back from a wonderful weekend  away to celebrate Samhain...the weather was appropriately atrocious and the rain has lashed down for days..... but our cottage was cosy with log fires and  warm wool blankets and the laughter of friends.........those no longer with us and those we can still hug. We remember and love them all...Happy Samhain, and a Happy Celtic New Year.
Love Lynn xxxx

Taking some time...



Now here is another picture of my new still room..I'm slow I know but I can't afford everything at once so please be patient with me whilst I wait for just the right second hand pieces to magically appear at the car boot.
I bought some gorgeous berry's and chilli peppers from the market this week and I have been boiling up vintage blankets and vintage cashmere jumpers to use in my sewing. Are you making anything for Christmas cooking or crafty crafts....drop by and let me know..

Let the magic happen..........


How aware are we of our intuition, the magic within us, of our creativity, weaving love into the lives of our family's our friends creating restful havens in our homes. How much happiness can we bring with a bunch of autumn flowers or a jar of home made jam lovingly given.....do we do enough? It is in our power to forget our egos,  to let go of impatience, to notice more what others need, and what they are trying to say...to let not only our intuition speak but to act on it...so as the leaves fall and the wind twirls them into spirals of colours  I know I will try to listen to my inner voice more so I am able to do these things.
With love

Restored room....nearly....

Last week I decided to go get some new lamps for my new utility room ,  a perfect Autumn day..... 




I found this gorgeous lamp and here it is on my newly painted window sill 
I know I still have my tree and lights on from last year....my bit of all year round Christmas ...






Here is another lamp I bought and a picture of the colours I have used in the room, mostly cool whites and greys..




then I had lunch outside..I know a little greedy with the tomato sauce!

I  am so pleased the utility room is nearly back to normal after our flood in January
it has been a great to re plan and redecorate and forget about how nasty it was.
More pictures soonxx
