Simplicity is Best

At Pale Rose cottage, we ALL love the simple things in life. I thought to share a few with you today. We picked some flowers to put in a vase for our coffee table. Mom knows exactly what they are called, but right now I'm struggling to recall it. Can't ask her as she's busy right now writing to our friends J+H. They are a gorgeous yellow, look cheerful and Charlotte adores them (as do I) :D

Comforts of Home



Home is one of my favorite words as it holds so much meaning. My cat Charlotte sleeping on the chair making a soft squeaky noise when she inhales. The teapot dancing on a flame, promising a cup of nettle tea. Mom busy knitting socks...

Felting Falafel & Such Fun

In a brown paper bag in the attic we had kept our beautiful hand dyed sheepswool. Some of it we bought at a natural crafts shop in town. The blue, pinks and yellow we got as a gift. From the mother of my sister's boyfriend. She makes these colors herself, isn't that awesome. The wool was placed for safe keeping in said bag in the attic, because our Charlotte loooooooves wool :D

A February Day of Spring




Springtime is often announced by bulbs & we have plenty of those here at the cottage. Most are still hidden in our garden, needing to popped their heads out from the soil. Some are very visible and beautiful, standing in the living room. Yes, we got loads new this year and they are hyacinths, daffodils and grape hyacinths...

Happy Valentine News?




Dressing up in floral prints & decorating my room with everything girly and soft pink is fun any day. Adding those extra bits for Valentine is even better.  So I got to it this morning & added my bird-line (see below) Reading yet another one of my favorite historical novels, I came to realize that I'm a hopeless romantic who was born too late...

Dad's Birthday Bash




Happy Birthday Dad, I called out early yesterday morning. Carrying a card, a BIG smile & a wriggling Charlotte. Who did not seem to understand why she had to be disturbed during her sleep, picked up & cuddled at this hour. Because it was a special day!! My father added another year to his life and there would be a family celebration everyone had been looking forward to…

Painting a Portrait


They say that a picture is worth a thousand words & I take a lot of pictures with my camera. It makes weird noises, it does not get clear images all the time & it refuses to zoom in. Yet it always captures bits and pieces of our lives here at Pale Rose & the members of my family. Which is great! For some reason I don't print them out and have them on display all over the cottage. Not sure why...

Sun Dried Colors & a Governess




This beautiful sky we spotted on our evening stroll, isn't it simply magical?! It was a cold evening for a walk I thought, but mom disagreed. She mentioned that after being inside the cottage for such a long time, I probably wasn't used to it :) Truly have been spending a lot of hours at Pale Rose, cooking some food & reading many books...
