Wishing you all a week of Free Best Things



  1. It's great to know what you look like! ;) I love the simple things in life....and there in nothing better than FREE. All of those things would put a smile on my face.

  2. I love the specs...
    You have some lovely flowers in your garden..
    Free, is the best!

  3. My "bleeding heart" seems to have bitten the dust I'm afraid. I love the idea that "What happens in Youlgreave stays in Youlgreave"!!!xxxx

  4. Another lovely post! So nice to see what you look like, would recognise you anywhere now! That really is great art work, you must have been thrilled with that card. Your home always looks so clean and tidy!
