Lamb in The Warming Oven

via
Now I've seen everything.
Here is a very new use for the warming oven on an AGA range. Warming a new-born lamb or a spoiled pet lamb! So sweet. Have a great weekend. xo

Pumpkin Fields Forever

Looks like a good harvest, doesn't it?
I wonder if this is a pick your own pumpkin field?
Hope so. They are just begging to become jackolanterns.

Yew Tree Farm, Cumbria UK

Yew Tree Farm, Lake District, England by Aidan Mincher When you see photos like this, it's easy to see why Beatrix Potter was drawn to this part of England in her later years. In 1929, when Beatrix Potter was 64 years old, the Monk Coniston estate came up for sale. The estate consisted of 2500 acres of land around the head of Coniston Water. It consisted of the well-known beauty spot Tarn Hows, seven farms including Yew Tree, Boon Crag, High Arnside, High Tilberthwaite and High Yewdale, as well as cottages, quarries and open fell land. She sold the half containing Tarn Hows to the National Trust, and bequeathed the rest of the estate to the Trust in her will. Read more here.

Cats Wearing White Collars (Ruffs)







Marie Cécile Thijs - White Collar Series
CATS WEARING AN ANTIQUE ELIZABETHAN RUFF
'White Collar' is one of the newest autonomous photo projects of Marie Cécile Thijs, which she started in 2010. The models are wearing a 17th-century antique ruff collar that belongs to the collection of the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Because this collar is so delicate and rare, it was photographed by Marie Cécile Thijs separately in the Rijksmuseum and placed afterwards on her models by way of digital imaging.
She used human models too. See all of these fabulous images here. See all 14 images here.

Shedding Light on the Old Stairs

I love this photo. The patina on these old stairs is so beautiful since they have never been painted. My trees are still green because it's been so warm but I am looking forward to fall color soon. via

Path of Pebbles and Brick

This path makes my heart sing! It is so charming and old fashioned. It has stood the test of time and has aged beautifully within this lovely walled garden. Do want! via

Sorting The Pumpkins

via
I passed a pumpkin patch near my cottage recently but it was nothing like this. The pumpkins were picked and put into HUGE boxes for transporting to a local farm market. I like this arrangement better where they are being sorted and sold on site. Have you purchased your pumpkins yet? Enjoy the long Columbus Day weekend. xo
