Lavender and Lace

Morning peeps and wherever you are I hope it's a good one.  Surprise and I have just had a lovely ride, it's cool this time of day and the smell  of honeysuckle from the hedgerows is gorgeous.

 I am sharing a couple of poppets today ( Paintbox Poppets !!), I am so glad I found The CD Sunday Challenge because they have inspired me to shake the dust from my basket of CD Roms...so thanks girls!! Their challenge this week is Dance and these little darlings should fit in a treat!! You will also find them joining in at Allsorts Challenge Lavender and Lace. I  used my lovely New Bloom paper pad, a flower from The Ribbon Girl, the sentiment from LOTV and the pretty lace that I bought from The Sherborne Tapestry Centre. If you are ever this way pay a visit to Sherborne, it's a lovely little Abbey town and Orlando Bloom is known to frequent the local bars and cafes when he visits his Granny!!

My Escallonia isn't quite a lavender backdrop but quite pretty nonetheless!!

The house was neglected, in favour of the outside, over the weekend so I had better show it some love, by way of the Dyson...blimey I know how to live it up!!

Toodles for now xx

This is sooooo pretty Sarah. Yes that lace certainly has the Wow factor!! Know what you mean about the cooler mornings. Here in Cyprus we find that's the best part of the day in the Summer months.
