Cabbages and Roses






Loving my two new books from the Book Depository that were delivered to my door last week. As many of you would know, Christina Strutt runs a fabric company Cabbages and Roses in the UK which specialises in historic rural printed fabrics.

Her vintage styling is amazing, her fabrics are amazing and I could be ensconced on the sofa with my cuppa for hours just browsing through these books.

 But this is not happening today, maybe tomorrow..

Popping over from Simone's where she shared the lovely lunch you attended. Thanks for sharing her beautiful home with us. Your photos are gorgeous! Blue and white with a pop of yellow is a favorite combination of mine. All the flower combinations and beautiful blooms are so pretty. Enjoy your new books. :) Tammy

Those roses with your string bag are the perfect was to set off the gorgeousness of those books! Your couch and the cushions look amazing in the background! Those devine fabrics are just beckoning you for a cuppa, a read of your new treasures and a relax ASAP! I hope you get at chance for a leisurely sit down soon! X

The first things to catch my eye were your beautiful cushions on the couch! I love their vibrant colours and retro/country vibe. I hope you get some time this week to really get into your books.
