Evening at Apple Blossom Barn

Hello there
Do you sometimes feel there are not enough hours in the day
between all the housework, running the kids about, doing homework
feeding animals
making meals
laundry and all the rest..........
sometimes it is just nice to sit and paint a wicker basket ahem!
Ok I am just avoiding house work anyway
add linen lining, sew on a duck egg blue trim
it looks much nicer now
oh and it has wheels so
the kids climb in and pull each other about!

My cottage at evening time

Lots of tea lights

My home is 301 years old
all the walls are uneven,
floors slope
but it is home..
can you spot our wedding photo
Best wishes
to all......


  1. I was all set to admire the lovely job you did on the basket but got thoroughly distracted by the magnificent fireplace. What a wonderful house you have.

  2. Oh my goodness your home is lovely...and the cozy way you have it decorated is beyond sweet. I love it! Hugs to you. xoxo

  3. I love your beautiful home! My aunt lives in an old house so I know what you mean about everything being uneven, but the character is something our newer home lacks :)

  4. Hello,
    your home is utterly beautiful. I love those uneven cottagey walls. My walls are too straight. I love your curtains and your pretty mirrors. It is all beautiful.x

  5. I LOVE YOUR COTTAGE, DENISE. The older the better. And they way you sweeten it up with all the love, the kids, the whimsy, the beautiful touches....well, it is home. YOUR HEARTH IS WONDERFUL!!!!!

    Enjoy my have so much to love! Anita

  6. Just popping back as I had to chuckle re your comment on the shops in my village. I plonked all that post together and forgot to say that the shops are close to the city centre, so the pics of the flowers in vases etc are from there. There is sweet ahem in our village although it is bonny. We have a coop selling an array of unappetising goods and not much else! I love my weekends when I head off to the city!
    I bet the Rachel Aswell curtains were expensive. Gorgeous though. xxx

  7. I'll do anything to avoid the's so repetitive and boring!
    I simply love your pretty cottage with the fireplace and cosy's what I dream of!
    Have a happy weekend. :0)

  8. Oh how I LOVE YOUR COTTAGE! And sweet Denise, thank you so much for your lovely visit today! I truly appreciate your friendship! I wish you a magical evening in your cozy cottage as we are enjoying tonight in ours. LOVE! Anita
