Well, Hellooooo :o)

How are you all then my lovely people?


Keeping well I hope!

OOOooooo....It's an age since I've been on here!

Well, as you can all see, I've now been connected to my new internet service, so hopefully that'll be it with any internet problems from now on. But now I've said that......  lol.

Anyway, what have you all been up to? And what have I been up to?

Well, me and my little family all had a fantastic week away in Devon and Cornwall.  It was absolutely gorgeous down there.  We had loads of walks, and fresh air.  

The scenery of these two counties is just gorgeous, and the arts and crafts down there are just everywhere.

Base camp was North Devon, just on the border with Cornwall, and we basically drove all the way  around Cornwall visiting Lands End and Lizard Point, visiting all the bays along the way, then drove around the middle of Cornwall a bit, and back to the cottage.

I hasten to add that we didn't just do this in one day, we did it bit by bit through the week:o)
We visited Clovelly, where other than the cobbles, we spied these two beautiful kittens sitting in the window :o)
First there was this cute black n' white kitty - she really wanted to come out and play..
See her little face when we were talking to her?
Then her sister came along to get in on the act, and budge her out the way..
I must admit I felt a tad rude standing there photographing someones lounge window, but I just couldn't resist!  ;o)

I loved this pretty porchway with it's chimney pot planters and comfy looking seat!

And the views were gorgeous.

We also visited the lovely Donkey Sanctuary just outside Sidmouth.

It's a lovely place where poor little souls get to spend their retirement in peace.

Then on the way home, we spied these gorgeous hay ricks in a field...

Honestly, how often d'you get to see this view nowadays?

Aren't they beautiful?

I took dozens of photo's on our holiday, but don't worry, I won't put too many on here :o)
But in future posts, I do hope to show you some of the lovely places we visited. 

I didn't get a lot of crafting done -which means we were too busy ;o) - but I have finished my daughters quilt and cushion cover since we've come back, but I'll have to show you them in the week, as it's her 16th Birthday today, (Happy Birthday! :o)  ) and I haven't yet had the chance to photograph them properly yet. 
That's the reason I haven't had a chance to post until today, as now I've given it to her, I've got five minutes to myself ;o)

Anyway, that's it for me tonight folks. I'm of to fit in a spot of crocheting for my Etsy shop.

I do hope you're all fine n' dandy where you are!

Take care now.
Love Donna xx


  1. Your holiday looks fabulous! Great photos and a huge welcome back :o) Scarlett x

  2. You have been so missed, Donna! What a beautiful trip- and fantastic photos. Those kitties are precious. I'm so glad you were able to finish Gem's quilt- she must have been beyond thrilled with her wonderful mum's thoughtfulness!! Can't wait to see photos!
    Lots of hugs and love~ xoxoxox J

  3. Nice to have you back Donna!
    What gorgeous scenery, it looks like a fabulous holiday.

  4. Welcome back, Donna! Selfishly, I missed your sweet comments on my blog.

    Your pictures of your vacation are so lovely. You have conveyed a good "feel" of the sites and landscape. Thanks for sharing. What an absolutely beautiful country!

  5. Hi Donna, welcome back!
    Looks and sounds like you've had a wonderful week away - the beaches look fantastic, and Clovelly is such a pretty village - those sweet little kittens too!
    Well done you for finishing your daughters quilt in time for her 16th (I shamefully still have to finish my daughters 16th birthday quilt and it was in April - blush) she will love it, and I look forward to seeing photos of it.
    Thanks for popping over to mine - i've just got back off holiday too, so should be posting soon.
    Take care Donna
    Gill xx

  6. Looks as if you had a fab holiday. I visited Clovelly once, and guess what? I took a photo of a cat in a window! Enjoy the w/e. Lizzie xx
