An absolutely delicious salad of feta, mango and olives. The combination is fabulous, do try it.
And a new book waiting to be opened.
Both enjoyed in my sunny garden.
I don't buy many interior design books, cookbooks are of course my preference, but when I saw this one mentioned on Concha's blog I knew I'd love it.
And I do.
It is crammed with inspiring photograph of beautiful homes, many belonging to bloggers.
I was particularly struck by these pictures (above) of a girl's bedroom.
It reminded me of my daughter's room.
Bookshelves with carefully placed books and ornaments.
Dangling mobiles, original artwork and tasteful soft furnishings.
The crochet blanket is not one of mine by the way.
I'm particularly proud of the way she has arranged her belongings on this little table.
It must have taken her hours of thought to get it just right.
Note particularly the washed and ironed clothes artfully scattered over the floor just inches away from a wardrobe.
And you have to admire the way she has 'dressed' her bed.
I really can't imagine why I wasn't asked to contribute photographs of my home to this lovely book.
