Sweet Things

Two beautiful things to post about as I head off to the weekend.

I first discovered Rosemary's blog Content In A Cottage even before The Hedge was a twinkle in my blogging eye.

Little vignettes of carefully researched & compiled beauty & wisdom appear each day on CIAC. It's an addiction impossible to break.

Thank you dear Rosemary for your friendship & support & for this delightful Sunshine Award.

Not long after The Hedge was let loose on the unsuspecting Blog world, I received a sweet comment from Trina, who had also just launched her blog. From my very first visit to A Country Farmhouse I was hooked. Trina & her husband Mr. A Country Farmhouse (aka Mike) have almost single-handedly transformed their home from a tired & lack-lustre property on acreage into the most exquisite gem of style & elegance. With Trina's commitment & vision & Mike's skills, they have created a home of great character, warmth & charm.

To complete their journey, they have just announced that there will be one further room to renovate & decorate - a nursery for a precious set of twin babies due just before Christmas. Trina's post on this wonderful news is compulsory reading here. Much love to you both, those babes already have a zillion fairy Blogmothers looking out for them! A happy weekend to you all.
