Sitting room at Christmas time.  I might not decorate Christmas this year in the traditional colours. I think maybe I will have all silver and white.  Just a thought, a little time yet to change my mind.
Some of my vintage collections. I love cutlery with bone handles, memories of Grandma's home 

Bathroom window made by our daughter.  It changes colour as the sun and light change.Collection of vintage bottles and jars

A collection of my blue and white china, I can't seem to stop buying it,usually from op shops and markets

My Hibiscus

The Hibiscus are all starting to show off their beautiful bright colours.

 The single white is always my favourite, I love its simplicity and its gorgeous bright red stamen

The marshmallowness of this one looks pretty enough for any display

I am joining Fishtail Cottage for Cottage Flora Thursday today

The roses

The garden is starting to look really nice and the roses especially are looking good.  I picked a bunch of my favourites.

The climbers look especially nice

The black boy has been in the garden for about 8years and only ever gets one rose a year.  This is the one so far for this year.  I am living in hope that we get more

The fairy roses are always sweet

This one flowers for most of the year.  I can never remember their names

The climber with an overcast sky,
