These beautiful Valentine roses were delivered to me yesterday from my gorgeous little Granddaughter. What a lucky Grams I am!
Along with the beautiful roses are some scrummy cupcakes from my daughter and SIL, beautifully decorated and really delicious! The little vase at the front is a Valentine present from D.H, a total surprise and so sweet. I hope you like my Nicholas Mosse pottery; I love spongewear and now have quite a collection.

How about this for a beautiful candle, a present from my daughter at Christmas (so lucky to have a daughter totally in tune with my taste!). It is a Parable Candle, hand poured, they are quite unique, the design comes from very old wallpaper patterns. I promise that I will light it eventually!

Today is one of my Soraya days so I know it will be a good one with lots of fun and games as usual! She is a bundle of fun and energy and certainly keeps me on my toes!

I am looking forward to sharing more of my favourite things with you, my favourite places in and around Lincolnshire and of course, my old cottage.

Mona, Thankyou for the lovely comments, we are alike, arent we? I am actually a Gemini, which means we will get on well! I adore your blog, have peeked in many times and will continue to do so. Just got back from a lovely few hours with Soraya, for the last hour she was dancing with her fairy wings on and pretending to be a ballerina! Happy Days xxxx
