Glimpses @ Brabourne Farm


This beautiful throw was knitted by a friend as a house warming present - it took her months! It's just exquisite and one of my very favourite things.

Mr Brabourne's Easter baking .... yum yum!

The last of the summer roses.

  9. absolutely stunning glimpses. Just perfection.

  10. You have created such beautiful 'still lifes' in your home Leigh. I'm totally in love with that box in the first image - what is it exactly? And I take it that it is an antique? Do tell!

  11. Hi Catherine

    Thank you for your lovely comment. The box - it's an old cash box that I've had forever. It's had many uses - at the moment it's near the door and is home to the dogs' leads and the binoculars; not very romantic but very useful!



  12. Thanks for letting me know! I love that you have put it to good use, a beautiful object used for practical purposes is a good thing in my book!
