Pineapple, Stone Henge and Nearly Home Trees

11 Nov

I love this quirky lampshade.

We chose the route home from London that avoids most motorways and goes past Stone Henge.

Stone Henge

The Nearly Home Trees are so loved by all of us as we return to Cornwall from England.

The Nearly Home Trees at Cookworthy Knapp  on a murky Autumn afternoon

We’ve been away for the last ten days first helping Daughter 3 and family with decorating their new home and re-making curtains to fit the smaller windows. It’s all looking lovely. Their new place is the thatched cottage from 1600 that I mentioned a few days ago. We then spent a few days in London with Daughter No 2 and her family and now we are home again…….  My apologies to all who have commented recently – I’ll reply soon. Apologies too to those whose blogs I have not had time to read!

    Check the walls of that 1600’s cottage, there might well be some gems hidden in there.

      Good advice. The floors slope, the beams are beautiful and the walls in surprisingly good condition. We know that there will be horseshoes in the garden and hedges as the blacksmith who lived there just chucked them around when they were done with! 🙂

        Original glass in the windows? I love going to The Rocks in Sydney and seeing the windows in the old sandstone buildings there; many with the original glass, which has now settled towards the bottom. We forget glass is a liquid… Until time reminds us.

          I didn’t look at the glass but I will next time we visit. 🙂
