..the holidays are now over and my son is back at school, we have had a lovely time, enjoying the weather and days out with family and friends, but I sigh a sigh of relief, because as lovely as the holidays are, I am now realising all the things I haven't managed to keep up with, one of which is blogging. It seems a while now since I blogged, so this may be a longer one than normal, I apologize in advance..

Last week I recieved a lovely surprise from Viv at Pooh's Abode, as the winner of her lovely giveaway, she sent this wonderful book Stitch Dictionary, which is just perfect, as I do like to have a go at a tapestry now and again. Thankyou Viv.

I have also been busy ordering books from the library.....

They are all lovely books, but I recommend Flea Market Style. The only down side of borrowing books from the library, is they have to go back, and I have been known to hold on to them longer than I should.

I am also in the process of uploading some lovely new products onto the Country Style Living website this week, including...

Lovely Quimper French Pottery Cup and Saucer

Pretty Pale Blue Small Stool

Vintage White Painted Wooden Shelves

...there are still more items to add, if you have chance, please take a look.

Hope you all have a lovely week.....

This Week on TV!

Firstly' Thankyou ' to you all, for your kind Easter wishes ..I hope everyone has had a lovely Easter weekend, and enjoyed lots of chocolate, and had great fun with family and friends. We have had a relaxing weekend, we got caught up on all the gardening, enjoyed time with our nephew Angus, who we don't see very often, and Yes have eaten lots of chocolate, whilst watching a good film on TV!
Talking of TV, one of the things I enjoy about the weekend, is looking through the following weeks TV listings, looking out for a favourite film, or a new TV series to watch. This week has a lot to offer..I did intend to write this post yesterday, but never got around to it, so the first listing would have been....

Mon 5th April - Vincent Van Gogh - Painted with Words BBC 5.10pm docu-drama depicting the artists life.
