Inspire me Monday / A post for you

My dear blog friends, hope you all had a fantastic weekend.
Mine was lovely, we had the family over for afternoon tea yesterday, we sat on the deck, had tea, and nibbles...very pleasant.
The weather had been a bit uncertain in the morning but luckily it decided to warm up in the afternoon - I was so pleased!
And today well it's kind of blog is turning 1! I know! Time flies, doesn't it?
It's been a fantastic year and for me a great discovery...a bit like Harry Potter and his parallel magical world...I just want to say thank you to you all for your incredible support, your generous comments and your made it fun for me, loved every minute of it!
Hope to last another 10 or maybe 100 years...he he!!!...

Here's a little thank you gift for you...
Have a super fantastic week ;)

Modern country beauty

This UK countryside conversion is just stunning...loads of space, style and beauty, what more can you ask for?

I just love the exposed beams and the obvious old v new contrast...just glorious!

Hope you are having a wonderful day wherever you are :)

(In Sydney we have had the most beautiful day - a spectacular blue sky and glorious sunshine, so lovely!)

Take care,

Beautiful homes / Barn inspired

This beautiful home created by architect Daniele Claudio Taddei is located in gorgeous Brissago, Switzerland. Blessed with looks, location and inspirational ideas this building is definitely a winner for me.
