Welcome to a new blogger....

I have commented before on how I am infatuated I am with all things British and yesterday when a new blogger sent me a link to her blog I was instantly hooked. Her name is Amanda and she is from the UK.

She has 4 kids and she loves Rachel Ashwell style and roses. She loves to shop at Rachel Ashwell Notting hill.

I think her sense of style is nothing short of gorgeous and I imagine that her blog will be full of all sorts of eye candy.

Are you hooked yet? I am thrilled to be her first follower and since I can't keep her lovely photos all to myself I wanted to share her. A lot of people helped me out when I was a newbie (thank goodness for Janae especially!) so I like to help out new bloggers in any way I can--especially when I foresee an amazing blog!

Please leave Amanda a comment and tell her I sent you:).  I wish her much blogging success!

It has been so hot here--I always tell my Mom she misses out on the most beautiful night skies (she is a early to bed early to rise sort of person) but I have to admit this mornings sky was beautiful. It was 102 degrees yesterday--breaking records for us. Why is it hot weather makes for the most beautiful skies?!

I am so pleased with my Mother..she is an avid garage sale shopper and she has been finding me vintage lace. I love it! Can never have too much lace.

Let me know what you think of Amanda's blog..have a great week!

Thanks for visiting!

Hi Sandy! I came across Amanda's blog through her visit to my blog - it's quite lovely!!! What a wonderful way to welcome a new blogger! :)

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Thanks for the introduction to Amanda's blog, Sandy. I will head on over there to visit. The pictures you've shared are gorgeous. We had a brief few days of wonderful weather with no humidity here, but today is supposed to rain and I'm so afraid that humidity will be back. I hate having to be outside when it is hot, even if it is not for long. I find it very draining and do wind up feeling tired from it.
