Good Friends

Last Friday I had a fantastic day!  I went to Claire's for lunch as she had a special guest, it was Julie from 'Threadbear Cottage'.  It was a great day, catching up, eating and having a tour around Claire's house which is always fun.  I am always looking for what is new, where she has used her op shop finds and of course new ideas for myself!  And I was not disappointed as Claire had finished tidying up her back room - which is truly gorgeous!
The sun was so bright, the photo does not do this room justice!

Love the curtain.

A vase hanging in the middle of a picture frame-gorgeous!
 Claire has slowly been changing her rooms in her house, each has a theme and each gets more gorgeous! Although she has one room to go and that is her country/prim room which is my favourite, can't wait to see this one finished!  As you can see she has a way to go, as she can't even get into it yet!!! It is even spilling into the hall way!!

Then it was onto lunch, which I tried to help with, I made some raspberry muffins...............
which I brought to Claire's in an old colander dressed with doilies.
It was a fab day, thanks ladies, it was great to catch up with Julie, Nancy and Claire.  Not sure this coming Friday is going to be as good as last week, but we will have to wait and see.  Enjoy your week, Michelle.


  1. Love coming along when you girls get together. Lovely pics.

  2. Claire's house looks wonderful, still her wee shop she used to have was wonderful too, so it is no surprise her home is lovely. Great to hear Julie was there enjoying herself.

  3. Those raspberry muffins look yum. Loved the tour through Claires gorgeous home

  4. Hi Michelle, (home again now) - was SO great to catch up with you at Claires, such a bonus when she said you were coming. Glad your camera took some neat pics as mine was having a "moment". I actually think Claire should've just let you and I into her Country room - we wouldve soon had it sorted between us both!!! Thanks for the yummy muffins too, Happy week Michelle, Julie Xx

  5. Claire's rooms look lovely! What a sweet and lovely idea to place your homemade muffins in!

  6. Gosh what a wonderful day... you girls always have so much fun together! Those muffins look yummy....
