New Home Sneaky Peeks...

Hi All!

Well, we've been in our new home for just over a week now - we finally got the internet hooked up this weekend and I'm hopeful that I'll resume normal bloggy service shortly.


Today I wanted to quickly show you the beginnings of my sewing room. I've not had the time to sew anything new yet, but just having this little corner set up makes me feel good. My room gets amazing afternoon sun, but I'm still toying with the idea of possibly taking the room next door which gets all day sun - we'll see. It's currently David's office/library and is a rather lovely room to sit in and read...

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen a few sneak peeks of our house, mostly of the late summer/early autumn produce we've been harvesting. Our plan at this stage with the garden is to harvest as much as we can, get rid of the weeds/over zealous nasturtium, prune everything back and get it ready for winter.  David and I have spent hours in the garden already, and it doesn't even really look like we've made a dent! But we're loving it. As are our ladies - they've been feasting on all the snails we've been finding.

Two of three chickens free ranging in a bit of garden David and I had just cleared. We couldn't catch the third one! 

Daisy (Left) and Rosemary (Right). Marigold (Missing - aka too smart for her own good!) 

Our house blog is coming! Stay tuned... 

I'll be back this week with my version of the Flora Dress that you've probably seen popping up all over the internetz - I had the pleasure of testing it for the ladies at BHL, and what a lovely little dress it is...

  6. How exciting to be setting up your very own home. Your chickens are so beautiful. I would love to have some at home, but have to be content with the free range ones out at the farm where my dear horses live. I'm looking forward to seeing your Flora. XXX
