Sheepish

I just love them.  Fluffy little white things, like pillows scattered on a landscape.  If I ever become landed gentry, I want my two mile long driveway to be dotted with them.

And I love HER.  Rhoda Birley, fearless eccentric and style maven extraordinaire.  Look at her gardening outfit.  Just look at it.  Fabulous.  If you stop by my house on a weekend, yell at me if I'm in the back garden and not wearing some getup like this.

And I can't get enough of England in all its shapes and forms.  The patchwork seams of the countryside have always held a special allure for me.

Now that you've seen my inspirations, this is my foyer.  Can you spot the influences?

Lisa, so much amazing content to savor here. Your entry hall (and the post) are making my "made me smile" section.

Such a charming blog! Happy to have found you. Given your love of sheep and all things English...have you ever stayed at The Goring in London? Delightful hotel, sheep everywhere!!

Any woman who has Rhoda Birley in her "garden clothes" and my favorite wallpaper in the same post, is a treasure! Just bookmarked you and am enjoying your past posts.

Thank you all, for the lovely words! To Pamela Terry and Edward, we usually stay at The Gore Hotel (in Kensington) when we're in London, but I've never stayed at the Goring. Sheep everywhere? I may have to check Expedia for last-minute flights!

haha excellent thanks for sharing, I like people like her because like me, we do things and we don't care what anyone else think and less if they don't like it, sometimes I dress like a freak crazy on the street and I just feel happy with myself, even in my job, I sell Viagra Online and in the office I stay sith on my desk doing my job and I don't talk to anyone because I'm just working not making social life in there and I have a synesthesia condition which is very nice, I'm very happy with that.
I will follow your blog, I really like it.
Thanks, good luck
