High Calibre Stuff.

So yesterday morning I went to the W's to catch up with G who's back from the Middle East.
Such good chat, such High Calibre Workshopping. I miss them already.
 Then I had a beautiful afternoon tea with the Twins.
 Gee those ginger jar style jeans've been good to me.
 For a 2 year old, Baby L has quite the Wardrobe.
 Discussed  Signifigant Red Phoenix accessory and home wares developments and admired these tassel-tastic sparkly earrings:
And Mitford Fans, prepare yourself emotionally, because I have this on order from amazon:
I hope it's as good as I recall it being in the early 80s. Especially as I've trecked  to Swinbrook to see Asthall and visited Rue Monsieur in Paris since then. 
 Here's Old Farve/Uncle Matthew:
 And here's Old Sonia, Lady Montdore. 
Meanwhile back in Real Life, this was my sunset on Sunday night-
And this was my sister's sunrise in London on Monday morning-
Actioned some mending tonight. Feel like I have scaled Everest. 
Cheerio.

  1. Hello FF. Love your blog, you have beautiful style. I've been reading back a year or two. Admiring your scarves. Wish I could wear scarves but fear I would expire from overheating , menopause has not been kind in that department. I have the same type of garden. Broms. Cordies. Do you have tree ferns? I've got a few shading some broms. Looks very restful. Have a lovely stylish scarf filled day!

  2. FF just had to tell you inspire me to get up get the make up on and get on with it. Yesterday was a particularly difficult start to the day. One of my sisters died at the beginning of the year after a year long battle with the big c, my husband was also very sick for most of last year and still recovering and to finish the terrible time off my brother in law died just before my sister. So some days are just hard I love to read your blog and just all the beautiful colours make me happy. I'm glad you don't write about world peace.
    Kind Regards
    Karen

    1. Karen I'm sorry you have had such a terribly sad time recently. FF's blog is innately cheering though isn't it?

    2. Dear Karen, So sorry about the hard time you're going through. Can understand what it means to you to have something beautiful and cheering like this blog to help you start your day - or to take our mind off problems and sadness in the evening. My son always tells me when I feel depressed to write down at least 5 things that were good about the day, even if they're tiny. Like a beautiful flower or sunshine or a good television program. Or a nice cup of tea. To focus on small happy things and not let grief swamp you, as it will at times. I'm sure all of FF's lovely community of readers will be thinking about you and wishing you well. Best wishes, Pammie xx

    3. Dear Karen, it's a wonderful thing to lean on FF & this blog during life's horrific and tragic moments. I came across this blog last year whilst looking after my seriously injured beautiful boy last year. I came to see FF as my axis of sanity & now I really appreciate all the FF followers like Pammie & slap dash mama. A year after the accident my son is doing well & I love FF. Realized my sis is FF's handbag soul sister but I'm her scarf twin. Good luck & I hope it gets better for you Den xxx

    4. Karen I am so sorry to read about this. In 2010 I had some very sad times and then my Grandma died, 2 weeks later my uncle died and then my aunt died. I was exhausted with grief and sadness. I hope you can find some peace and joy in the small things. I wish you all the best xxx

      I wish you all the best

  13. I've got that dvd, and it is fabulous. The actress playing Linda is so beautiful, you can't take your eyes off her. There is another one, a tv series I think which I also have. I love the Mitfords, my faves are Nancy because she was so witty and funny, Diana for her beauty and loyalty to Mosley and Debo for her stoicism in the face of a hard life, losing babies, husband not the best and taking on a large house and making it a success. Oh what inspirations they are.
