Why so much Orange? I'm playing along with Daisy Quilts and Colourful Fridays. Play along too!


  1. I love orange such a positive colour love the scarf:)

    HaPpY OrAnGe day!!!

  6. love your pics - especially the Royal Albert milk jug & sugar bowl - such a pretty pattern

  7. Nessa! How beautiful. I can't knit to save my life, but I love the romance of it and you certainly captured it in your pictures... And your china is lovely!
    I did not have a glory box, but love the idea of it, and think it is a lovely tradition. I inherited some odd pieces from both grandmothers and chose my own set when I got married: Sarah's Garden Wedgewood.

  8. One of my lovely neighbours has Sarah's Garden Wedgewood and I have long admired it. Thank you for your lovely comments (and I'd love to see some of both your grandmother's china)!
