UK charm and other stuff...........

We have returned from our trip overseas and I am just getting back in to normal life again.  Laundry, cleaning and all that good stuff.  Here are a few snap shots of the places we visited and an antique market.  I could have bought a ton of stuff there if it would fit in my suitcase........no such luck, just picked up a couple of little treasures that I am yet to put somewhere in my house.



I did buy one of these.......a scale that is.........not the town below:)


Anstruthers, famous for its fish and chips



These pretty little seaside villages are so charming and inspiring.  I will get back to blogging about my little farm house soon.  We have decided to tackle that bathroom...........can't wait!  Before I leave you for today, here are a couple of shots from Spain.  Very different from Scotland but equally as beautiful, I have always loved the look of a Mediterranean coast.



The shot above I took from inside a small cave while on a hike above the town of Denia.


getting a bit of sun on my face while leaning against a palm tree..........Happy New Year everyone!
