After yesterday's 'day in the life' post I quite fancied posting a few things around our home that bring me pleasure whenever my eye falls on them. If only it were that simple! I started by trying to photograph Isabella's new dresses made by me in the half term; I had forgotten what a wriggle worm she can be. For example:

To make matters even worse, the photos I took of the other dress were even more appalling and she wasn't wearing it at the time!!! How bad am I at this? Also it would truly pay to remember to IRON said dress before attempting to
Other things bringing me pleasure at the moment are this cup and saucer bought for me by Dave's mum as a 'congratulations on being pregnant with Isabella' pressie

And last for today some shots of plants busily doing their thing in the garden including the gorgeous daphne odora which perfumes the steps to the house
one of our aeoniums which flourishes outdoors all year in the balmy Cornish air
and finally to prove the mildness of this beautiful county, forget-me-nots and the lemon which are both outdoors all year and doing well.
Oops, nearly forgot; a tiny selection of some of the masses of sea treasure scattered around the house.
Bye for now xx
