Great Week for TV!

Once in a while, whilst looking through Saturdays 'Daily Mail Weekend' mag, I realise what a great week it is for someone like me, who loves home interior and cookery programmes, aswell as a good drama or film. And this is certainly a good week!! Here is my pick of the week ahead, although I am sure there are still some hidden gems too....

Today SAT I have already watched 'Whale Rider' and am looking forward to X Factor this evening. Wagner singing Kings of Leon?!

SUNDAY X Factor and then Downton Abbey at 9pm on ITV I don't want this series to end! I look forward to this programme in the same way I used too with Pride and Prejudice, the one with Colin Firth......

MONDAY Jamie at 5.30 on Channel 4 sometimes have to plus 1
The Little House 9pm on ITV

TUESDAY Jamie plus the long awaited new series of Kirsties Homemade Home 8pm Channel4 can't wait.....

WED Jamie again....then Nigel Slaters Simple Suppers, I love the simplicity of his meals

THURSDAY Jamie then Nigella 8pm BBC2 followed by River Cottage Everyday plus oned on Channel 4 at 9pm

FRI Jamie Last in the Series followed by Gardeners World BBC2 8.30pm

Please feel free to add any of the hidden gems I may have missed!

Have a great week.........

Finally I've Got It!

Yes, finally I was able to collect this long awaited read from the local library. I first read a review of this book, on one of the blogs I follow and promptly ordered it at the library, I was in a queue, and was finally able to collect the book about a week ago......




The book blurp says - Phoebe Swift always dreamt of opening her own vintage dress shop. She imagined every detail, from the Vivienne Westwood skirts hanging next to satin gowns, to sequinned prom dresses adorning the walls.
At the launch of Village Vintage, Phoebe feels the tingle of excitement as customers snap up the fairytale dresses. Her dream has come true, but a secret from her past is casting a shadow over the venture.
I am about a third the way through the book now and just getting to that can't put it down stage. I would highly recommend this book to all you vintage lovers out there.
Have a lovely week....................

Help needed please.....

Whilst out on my travels bargain hunting, I came across this picture, at the time I was looking for a frame to show a piece of artwork my son had done,which I was very impressed with, so I bought the picture with that in my mind, once home I started to feel differently about the picture looking at the trees and the movement they showed and how realistic the picture was. I thought I may offer the picture for sale on the website ,but once I started looking at it again, I started to wonder if the picture was in fact a watercolour, I am still not completely sure, but I didn't want to open the frame up and spoil the back which still has it's original seal. So this is where your help is needed please, does anyone know of an artist by the name of Tatton Winter, the picture is called Returning from Market, as you will see it is a lovely picture in a pretty original frame. I have had a quick look through Google and know he was born in Lancashire, but also lived down south and died in 1928. Any other information would be much appreciated......








There is some lovely new stock over on the Country Style Living website too, if you would like take a peek.....

Have a great week!
