A Couple of old Ruins

I am the one in the torquoise t.shirt. This is a picture of me outside the House of the Vestal Virgins in the Forum in Rome, Tony and I went there for a holiday when Tony reached his 60th birthday it was brilliant what history I think my favourite place of all was the Trevi Fountain, it was so unexpected right in the middle of narrow winding streets filled with holiday shoppers and suddenly you come upon this truly beautiful sight, magical!
The Vatican was of course something else so much beauty all at once is hard to take.
At the end of the week I needed a new pair of feet but my brain was well fed. Enjoy your day.

A lovely Day

Is'nt this a sweet image it's off thevintagemoth website sh has some lovely images which she invites you to take.

Kathleen and I have been shopping today we have had a good morning trawling around the shops, we bought things we needed and things we did'nt we planned lots of things we are going to do and we drank coffee. We then went to our local garden centre where we had a wonderful lunch and I am now so full I have had to undo a button on my trousers, (not a pretty sight).

We are planning to have a go at mosaics, we have the plates and the tile cutter the glue and filler we just have to find the time to do it now.

Great Weekend

Hello everyone, I have had a nice weekend with my wonderful family, the weather was quite good but it has turned cold today and very windy. The picture on the left is of a recipe journal that my husband bought me and I am slowly filling it with all the lovely recipe's I find on peoples blogs. I am having a day at home tomorrow I hope to get some more of my wedding ring quilt pieced it is beginning to look very pretty. I have also started to make some fabric hearts as favours for my daughters wedding, I will photograph them and post them on my blog and you can let me know if I am doing a good job. My friend Kathleen has got the knitting bug and we have been looking for patterns for toddlers cardigans as she has two new great grand children and she wants to start knitting for them, once she gets a bee in her bonnet there is no stopping her. Enjoy the rest of your day.
