A room with a view

It’s very quiet at my blog, nothing to tell sewing-wise: I’m not sewing, but enjoying a few wonderful days in the UK. After quite a stressful year DD thought it a good idea that DH and I would go away together for a few days. My mother is “taking care” of our children. Not much to take care of at their age, but just a bit too young to be on their own.

Now DH is enjoying one of the games at the football (soccer) World Cup tournament, a good time for me to write a post and share a few pictures (I’ll resume the usual sewing topics next time).

Our bedroom in the little cottage we have has this view, I would like to have it at my place.


We’re enjoying walks and gardens (there will be a few more plants in my garden next week). A few impressions, and back to sewing next time.


New walking shoes were bought today, after a lot of kilometers and many years this is was happened yesterday, the last half of the walk wasn’t very comfortable, but a bit of the sole was left.


I simply love to walk here and see these views and those lovely gardens (and of course have a cup of tea with homemade scones in a tearoom afterwards).










  1. How beautiful! Enjoy your break :)

  2. Absolutely gorgeous country side!

    Enjoy your break.

  3. It has been many years since we've been to England but the gardens and just how green it is, is still strongly in my mind. What beautiful views. When we were in England, my parents took care of are our kids too. Enjoy.

  4. You must be in the south of England (I'm guessing from the oast buildings)! I was there visiting family 2 weeks ago, in East Sussex, and these shots are making me miss them and our trip very much. Enjoy your time there.

  5. This is so beautiful, thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful time.

  6. Ahhhh, we were in Kent last year this time and treasured those wonderful walks and scenery. Glad to hear that you are enjoying the countryside, the food and a good rest.

  7. It looks like it came straight out of that TV show Midsomer Murders, its kind of like a British Angela Lansbury. It looks absolutely stunning, what a vacation!

  8. Gosh you are making me feel homesick. Lovely photos - when you live amongst these things you don't always see them in the same way.

  9. THose pictures are beautiful. Enjoy your vacation!

  10. Thank you for sharing your holiday snaps - it looks divine!

  11. Beautiful photos, and so peaceful looking. I envy you your time away.

  12. That's wonderful! Enjoy your vacation!

  13. How lovely! And sunny weather in the UK--you really hit the jackpot.
