Simple Pleasures

Well I had it all planned I would take some sea views of my local coastline for Sarah's Good Life Wednesday, unfortunately its rather grey and misty here in Norfolk today, so not so the good life here at the moment, well till a brighter day anyhow. So I thought I would post a couple of the simple things that make me smile.


This chandelier in my kitchen is from the 1950's I found it in a junk shop a few years ago for not much money.
The other thing is the pleasure of found objects. I have worked on my small garden for nearly 20 years now, it has gradually evolved over the years from wall to wall grass (because the children needed somewhere to play) to now wall to wall plants. Over that time I have found many a muddy treasure from clay pipes, oyster shells, broken china and glass bottles.


  1. I've been anxiously awaiting your next post wondering how you cold ever top your first.

    Well, you have not disappointed, beautiful images.

    I want that chandelier. please.

  2. That chandelier is stunning! Looks like you really got a bargain, lucky you!

  3. Loving the glimpses of your most gorgeous-looking kitchen!

    My mother's family are from Norfolk - Langham, and we still have a cottage in Binham is that your neck of the woods? So love it on the north coast there, the huge skies best of all.x

  4. Grey and misty here in San Francisco today too... I like your once-muddy treasures.

  5. I would love to see your garden sometime. And I do miss the ocean, here in the desert.

  6. Oh boy, how I loooove that chandelier!!!!! *Sibylle* from

  7. Because I'm the nosiest woman in the world could you shoot me an email and tell me a little bit about who you are and how you come to take such beautiful pictures and have such a swellegant home?

  8. I can't believe someone would put that beautiful chandelier in the garbage. I at least you get to enjoy it's beauty now.
