Home Sweet Home


the view from my kitchen desk

"With pomp, power and glory the world beckons vainly,
in chase of such vanities why should I roam?
While peace and content bless my little thatched cottage,
and warm my own hearth with the treasures of home."

Beatrix Potter

A quote after my hermit's heart.

    1. Perfect place for my desk...but I admit it can be a little distracting,
      especially if I have by camera close by!

      We're wise and bright.
      Leave us alone.

  5. I have visited Hilltop Farm twice, but it is not thatched! However there is a magnificent fireplace in the entrance hall that I would dearly love to own! It would be lovely to sit by in the Winter, toasting crumpets.

    That's a great photo of your window, shame it's not real stained glass. If I lived near you I would make you a splendid one for your kitchen; mind you it would cost about $10, very expensive! Ha!

    3. This is the "fly-in-the-ointment" as we say in the Home Country. It will cost me $91,943.60 to sell up here and buy a place in Cedarville and cover my expenses, and that is just an estimate! (I know your cookies alone are worth that!) Ha!

    1. I certainly do. It was a breakfast nook with three windows and we put a desk there for me.
      That way I can work and stir the spaghetti sauce at the same time. haha.

  16. I'm a hermit at heart, too. Just as well given that I've only been out twice in over a year. Love this photo when I saw it on IG and love it here.
