Home tour...
STOP #1...
Welcome to my kitchen....

I am often asked by my customers and long distance friends alike what my house is like...so I thought it high time I take a few pics to share with you.....


So welcome y'all to my home. You are ll most welcome to come stay a while...lol
I have started with my kitchen........thought I would do this room while it is unusually tidy.... ie. no bags, no laptops or shopping items on the counter, no dishes or coffee cups waiting to be washed, no bills to be paid (plenty of them still to be paid....just been popped out of sight)...no loose change, no wallets, no keys....no puddy-cat, no nuffin....just what is meant to be there!
Unfortunately there is also no freshly baked bread, no cakes, no brewed coffee.....but if you look closely there is probably a little dust I may have missed...lol
Today it smells like cinnamon(mmmm mmmmm) as I am burning a lovely jar candle from the states...so I guess you could really say that I AM cooking something!!!!
As you will see I am a lover of old bits and piece…

Well again,..if I am totally honest it was far from bright as I couldnt see a thing when I got there...pitch black at 6am in the morning....but it  WAS early!!!.

We (myself and my helpul hubby who came by to help me set up my puzzle of a gazebo....you would think we wou…

Oh no ..."not another pair?" I hear you all groan.... ...but THIS is par for the course when we collectors collect! It's simply what we do best....accumulate!
"Just ONE more"...or the old "well I haven't got one like that" or "I swear this is the last one" .....any of these sound familiar ladies????
Well I can tell you I have used each and every excuse in the book (and many more on top) to justify additions to any of my collections...lol
But life is far too short for excuses.... so why dont I just move on to showing you some more of what I received in the mail to add to my ever growing collection!!!
From the states and simply devine are these little what once were burgundy and cream button up boots.....arent they just to die for!!!!

The detail in these little boots are just delightful and they have already taken pride of place in my collection.....coz youno?????.....I didnt have any like the…
