In the absence of guests, the girls’ dolls and teddies appear to be taking over. They get to every seat in the house before me!
Got this beautiful 100% cashmere rug at a local auction for a really good price. It had been placed in storage and nibbled by a few mice but no damage done that couldn’t be strategically hidden by a piece of furniture. Isn’t she a beauty?
February 11th 2021. It’s freezing out with a bitterly cold East wind. We’re happy to be tucked up inside by a blazing fire. We’re also happy that we don’t have to worry about keeping guests warm today, always a challenge in this 300 year old house of ours when temperatures drop below zero!
Today, February 1st, known as Imbolc in old Gaelic, is a pagan festival traditionally marking the beginning of Spring. St. Brigid is also celebrated on this day.
Rococo still not quite sure where all the guests have disappeared to but waiting patiently for their return.
