Morning Light

I found the perfect spot in my new home to take pictures, the light pours in and it makes me feel altogether saintly and great. My mum bought me this treasure of a waistcoat for Easter and today was its first outing, I love the embroidery, especially the little birds carrying flowers in their beaks.  

Its been really lovely unpacking all my things in my new place, they were in store for over 6 months so I had forgotten so many things! I found so many wonderful scarfs and printed dresses, I feel like I have a whole new wardrobe.  It also great because its prompted me to have a bit of a clear out and begin afresh, new beginnings and all! It is a little hard to part with certain things - mainly hats (I have so many, probably over 50!) 

I'll post some pictures of my new home very soon. I'm just putting the finishing touches to it all and starting the garden. We're going to build a cob oven too (much more on that at a later date!)
