We have had a very sad weekend at the farmhouse. Yesterday Mr FH and I were in the sheepyards working when our beautiful, beautiful sheep dog Holly ran onto the road and was hit by a passing car. We were ready to move sheep across the road and the driver had ignored our signs and was travelling at a high speed when he hit Holly right in front of me. To say we were traumatised is really an understatement!! Mr FH is absolutely devastated to lose his best friend. I had trouble sleeping last night as I kept thinking - what if that had been a child? It is just too scary to even contemplate...
Today I have put together a very simple table(chair?)scape to join Tuesday's fun - I had made these pretty cushions a while ago and I just adore the colours.
This lovely teacup and saucer was a gift from a very dear old friend - she welcomed me into this community when I came here as a young bride 33 years ago. Sadly she has passed on but she was like another Mum to me. I have used this cup and saucer earlier in a pretty red tablescape which you might like to see here.
I found this cute old chair at a local antique shop (local, as in 80kms away!). I use this at my old rolltop desk which came from my husband's family. The chair is very rickety but I really love it - I won't need to put on any weight or I might just go right thru'!
Isn't this such a pretty chair?? How I would love a whole set of these.
Can you see the tiny insects flying around the rose buds on the cushion? I'm not sure what they are but they are way too small to be bees. I think gingham is such happy fabric - just what I need this week. Actually I had little Miss L come to visit yesterday (she is now 4 mths and has 2 teeth!) and little Mr L is coming to stay at the farm house tomorrow so there is nothing like grandies to cheer us up!
A couple of dusty old books look right at home on this old chair - maybe if the chair gets too fragile to use I could use it as a bedside table - now that's got me thinking!
