Appreciating what is on your doorstep

Last weekend when the snow had near enough thawed and we decided some fresh air was in order as it was such a bright spring day. So, we popped over to Lily Hill Park. We don't seem to go that often, even though it is almost on our doorstep. Maybe it is because we don't have a dog to walk, it is a big dog walking place. I think it is more the fact that we tend to forget what is right under our noses within a few minutes drive. Sometimes we are all too keen to go somewhere different or further away. There are often lovely places right near by which are well worth a visit. Come and have a look around with us........

The original house which is now privately owned.

How gorgeous are the twisted branches of this old rhododendron. In a few months the park will be full of lilac blooms from these gorgeous plants.

Some sculpture made from an old tree trunk. There are lots of pieces in the park and all the benches have been made from felled trees. Each of the benches has been woodworked with the name of the wood and a picture of the trees leave and seed pod.

The new walkways that they are putting in....definately saves from getting muddy boots!

Finally, a view looking up through the park. We took monkey's bike so didn't go up round these walks...maybe next time. To think it is all just on our doorstep.

Folksy Friday

Sometimes your jacket or cardi just needs a little, I don't know adding to. To me a brooch is the prefect way to do this. Here are a few of my favourites from Folksy.

Bookity makes some fab brooches with literary quotes. Check our her book handbags too as they are really unique.

Granny Ruth’s shop offers this stunning red rose and I will admit I have one adorning my new cardi.

I first saw these brooches from Applique Originals at Reveal before Christmas. In my mind the workmanship is amazing.

Finally this summery design caught my eye from Buttercup Boutique isn't it pretty?

Why not head over to Folksy and find some brooches of your own?

Folksy Friday

A fair few Folksy users have been having a Folksy Friday where they choose some of their favourite items on Folksy.
Here are some of mine.
We spent Christmas day, which seems like ages ago now, in my parents new holiday flat. It is in Marazion within smelling distance of the sea and a fantastic view of St Micheals Mount. They have spent the past 6 months or so getting it decorated and sorted out. Which made me think, what would I put in a holiday flat if it was mine? Or what would I have at home to help me remember my last holiday. Here are a few of my favourites.

A beautiful cushion from Ticketty Boo

A custom made beach hut by Elli Moody. I bought one of these for my dad for Christmas for in the flat and it is fab.

Some groovy fish from Half an Acre

And some fab photos from I Like to either send home or frame to go on the wall.
I don't know about you, but I am now counting the days till summer.....where's the beach?
