A Few Nice Things

Bloom the warm rose
Of lavish summer.
Christina Rossetti

I baked an apple pie and this time I made sure I had enough crust for a decent top. It was really good, I love mine with a slice of cheddar cheese.

The remaining chickens seem to be doing quite well. We now have 10.

I celebrated a birthday this Summer and my wonderful husband bought me this lovely blouse from April Cornell.  I added the rose sash (from Paris Rags) because as much as I love April Cornell's clothing, I find it runs pretty big. If I wear this as is, I look like I'm wearing a maternity top.

 Now, this I love, love! It's also by April Cornell. A little darker rose than what was on my computer screen, but it will be nice for Autumn.  Excuse my unmade bed in the background, I'm washing the bed linen today:)
Close-up of the back. Such pretty lace!

Hope you are enjoying the final days of Summer!

  1. Beautiful pie. Love April Cornell too. She has such pretty feminine fashions. You're right, they do run big.
