    I enjoy looking at the corners of your home! You have a great style :)

  2. So beautiful! I love the nest and eggs. I couldn't believe when I saw you mention the book, "Lark Rise to Candleford." I just heard about that book less than 20 minutes ago! I was looking through my copy of Mrs. Sharp's Reviving Victorian Traditions" where she recommends this book, also! You'll have to let me know how you like it. My library doesn't have it so I was thinking about making a trip to the bookstore. Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. I LOVE how you've used the little tin molds as votive holders. At a yard sale a few weeks ago, I purchased a bag of "goodies" for 25 cents. In the bag were 8-10 molds as well as old cookie cutters. I can't wait to find a place for them and use them just as you have.

  4. Your kitchen desk area is so nice. I don't have room for something like that but I wish I did.

  5. I love, love, love grape hyicynths !!!! - Julia x

  6. I love those grape hyacinths in that Blue Willow cup. Really lovely Deb. So is the kitchen. The white has made everything look so bright and cheerful. I lucked into "Lark Rise to Candleford" at the used book store last year. It's a keeper. I'm reading Susan Hill's "The Magic Apple Tree" right now. I think you would really like it too.

  7. How beautiful and quaint. :-)


  8. Lovely pictures, you do have style.
    I too bought the "Lark Rise" book after Sandra recommended it (on Ebay) I haven't started it yet but I'm looking forward to a good read.

  9. I missed out your kitchen corner, it looks great! I have been waiting for the moment of reveling, and i am not dissapointet at all :) Love the fresh light colour. It makes it looks very chic :)And your tin molds, ah, lovely! I have seen a few at a local antique shop, but they ask to much i think. So i am searching other places. On internet..Enjoy your kitchen!

  10. Lovely and elegant Debbie. Very you xoxo Clarice

  11. I know you will enjoy the Larkrise book. I also have a cookbook based on the Flora Thompson books and it is a real treasure.And I have also read The Magic Apple Tree that Mrs Stagg mentions and loved it, I have featured some of the illustrations from another of Susan Hills books, Through the Kitchen Window a couple of times on my blog.

  12. You have a really nice touch with decorating. I think those are just lovely and inspiring.
