  1. Great share! The top one is my favorite.

  2. Love anything to do with the Bloomsbury group... have you been to Charleston yet ? - I'd imagine a little too cold to make the journey but put it on your list for Spring... I have visited many times - I adore the place. Last time I was there was for a birthday party - they have a large barn that you can hire and use for functions. X

  3. Thank you Jeanne - another to add to my growing list! By the way I was introduced to 'Women who read are dangerous' via your blog & just wanted you to know how much I have enjoyed (& am still enjoying) it! x P.S. The word verification came up as isculpt - I think it should be iread x
