It's a small world

I have been reading this lovely blog for a while already, and admired Helen's beautiful home and her wonderful creations. I also saw at her blog a while ago that their beautiful cottage was featured in one of my favorite magazines. I went to newsstand here but nope, it wasn't there. I wasn't that surprised but annoyed yes, and went home without buying anything.



Then on last Saturday I was shopping, tired, a bit cranky and very wet from heavy rain. I went to magazine section and just crabbed a "looks-great-will-do" one and biked home (in rain again). In the evening I finally sat down on a sofa with a cup of tea and opened the magazine. Looking through pages I saw a pretty red-head and thought that I knew her somehow... Hey! It was Helen in the article I wanted to see - about her cottage! It was a lovely surprise (and the cottage was just so beautiful) and it just made my evening. It's a small world, indeed.



Happy Wednesday!

I like your blog a lot and enjoy your pictures so much, too, so it was great to read that article. Your cottage is adorable!

Have a wonderful day and many greetings from Finland!

Do you know Mia I read that very article yesterday while eating my lunch! You're right it is indeed a very beautiful cottage.
Thanks for the the tip about a new blog to look at, I'm away now to check it out.
Enjoy your day, Mia! :)

That is so great (and it makes the world feels even smaller!)! I love that magazine and buy it almost every month. Helen's blog is adorable, I would love to visit her shop but... So I am enjoying it via net!

Happy day, Viv!

Yours,
Mia

What a beautiful blog/home she has Mia but the thing which made me jump with delight was seeing the PIGS!!! I have a secret, I adore pigs and have some lovely collections in a cabinet which I call my pig sty, yes it's another of my vices!I so wish I could have a real one. Perhaps one day I will write a blog about my pigs?

It's a rainy day here, I have just got home from work so time to sit down with a cup of tea!
Happy Wednesday!
Love, Jane x

What a lovely thing you just shared, Jane! I love pigs too, and those pretty ones at Helen's are just adorable. And yes, please show us your pigs!

Happy and gray greetings from Finland again!

Yours,
Mia

I have to admit that Country Homes is one of my fave magazines and I have to agree about her lovely Blog and House ... if you ever want a UK mag and can't find it please feel free to ask :-)

Hi Mia, OMG! I want one of those chocolate cookies. Indeed, reading your post I too love the same magazine a bit small world without a doubt. Ohhhhhh, but those cookies, sorry, chocolate lover here.
Despite all the rain a bit the last two days, today was sunny and just the right temperature for a bike ride. Now, I must baby my bum believe me rode too long.

Have a wonderful Tomorrow.

Hugs, Dani

Thank you so much for the great offer, periwinkle! We seem to love same magazines!

I have been thinking of ordering that (UK version) to my doorstep but when I checked some years ago it was quite expensive. I really need to check that again, it would be so lovely to have it every month without seeking!

Happy day!

Yours,
Mia

Hi Dani!

An another fan of that magazine - wonderful! And I love chocolate-cookies too, but try to cut them for weekends only :) Christmas is coming and I know I'll be having a lot of everything then...

It's nice and clear here too so I am going to take my bike out for a ride too! Happy Thursday!

Yours,
Mia

This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
