Thank you.

Just another quick line to thank you for all good wishes.
I haven't been online much as I've been suffering with the mother of all colds since Christmas Eve, and it's only today I'm feeling better  and have had a whiff of the bacon I cooked for hubby!
Christmas day without any sense of taste or smell, and with lots of help from my lovely hubby and daughter lunch was cooked - they tell me it was good!
I'll 'fess up, the photo of the hearth in my last post was from Christmas last year...
Anyway, I'm going to catch up on some jobs than need doing, so will probably not be about again for a few days.  I'll try and catch up with all your lovely posts in between.

I wish you ALL and very happy, peaceful and more importantly a healthy 2012.

My very best wishes,

Just a very quick word to send all my lovely blogging friends a happy Christmas wish.  Hope you're all having an enjoyable day with friends and family!

I'll be back with a post when I've got a bit more time.

Best wishes.

!00th post, and an amazing award.

Hello dear friends, today I realise is my 100th post.  This morning I was amazed and delighted to find that my dear Blog friend Pattypan at Tarragon and Thyme has awarded me with

Liebster" is a German word meaning dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. My sincere thanks for the award, a lovely surprise and such a kindness.

Now on to the details. The Liebster is a way to show a little Blog Love to bloggers who currently have less than 200 followers.

The rules:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have fun!

I have now to choose 5 blogs to nominate for this award.....

After a lot of thought and head scratching today I have decided to pass this award on to the following delightful blogs.  Please give them a visit - you won't be disappointed.
Dan has a lovely, gentle way of writing about her cottage renovation and showing us the improvements as this massive job has moved along.  She loves vintage and recycling, has an interest in gardening and is adding to her sweet garden little by little.

Marina loves vintage as you can tell by the name!  She finds some fascinating objects and curios I love reading about.  A true collector - I know all about that! 
To quote from her profile "She loves food, film, interior design, the wonders of nature and perfect days walking in the woods or by the sea." 

Kim is a hoot!  I rarely look here without laughing, she has such a  wicked sense of humour :o)  'Nuff said.

Anna is English and lives in Norway.  She has a wonderful style, amazing photography , and writes so beautifully, it's a joy to visit.

Pea Green Kitty has recently made a very welcome return to her blog after an absence.  I was so pleased to see her back after a house move to a different county.  She loves vintage, crafts, walks and loves thrift shopping!  Always interesting and informative.

Phew!  Again a big thank you to Pattypan :o)
I'll post again later this week with a few finds.

Best wishes to all.
