Glass Ceilings

Aren't conservatories the most wonderful way to connect to the outdoors and to enjoy the garden in all weather. Add it to the wish list!

Making a Splash

Love these outdoor bath tubs and shower - probably a bit cold at the moment but don't they look so inviting and relaxing!

Dreaming of Winter

Now that autumn is here I've started dreaming of winter, my very favourite time of the year! I just love to sit by a crackling fire on a cold night - it's my idea of heaven.
We had a lot of trouble with our fireplace when we first moved into the house. Our house is on a hill in a high wind area and sometimes (not always) the wind comes down the chimney and fills the room with smoke - this isn't great when you have a large group of friends for dinner! After many changes, including converting to gas and back again, the fire now works and we've got a wonderful open fire. Hopefully winter will be cold this year here in the Highlands and it will get a lot of use.

Love .... Old Country Churches

Has anyone else noticed how lovely some of our old country churches are - just honest, simple buildings so evocative of another time.

Study Style

We have yet to do our study so I'm always looking for ideas. I just love the details in these rooms - lots of bookshelves, tables for reading, comfy couches and chairs. Perfect for a quiet winter afternoon!
