Australian Etsy seller 'my bearded pigeon' created this gem for a friend who was
recently diagnosed. I think she puts it beautifully.
She sells the pattern via her etsy store and gives the money to cancer research:

This wonderful Georgian Terrace house near Spitalfields Market, was owned and created by American Dennis Severs, who lived in the house until his death in 1999. He created it as a 'still-life drama', an installation, where one can enter, as if stepping through a painting, into the imaginary world of Mr & Mrs Jervis. In the dining room the table is set as though they have just finished dinner and wandered off to another room. You are aware of the chattering and daily life, but it's some way in the distance and you can't quite touch it.
At Christmas the house opens up to a magical tour (available 21st nov - 6th jan).
A special 'silent' tour is also available with champagne around the fireside to finish.
Thanks for the link Mrs H x

I found this beautiful railway carriage in Norfolk for hire as a location for photo shoots. It's wonderfully calm and simple and oh so stylish........sigh! I'll bear it in mind if Mrs Cheese ever does a catalogue shoot.

Here are a few photos from my little birthday run out to Blenheim with Mr Cheese last week. It was a really beautiful, crisp autumnal day. Walking around the palace you can just imagine period costumes and regal dinners........a real-life Downton Abbey.

I've just read One Day by David Nicholls and I LOVED it. If you haven't already read it, put it on your Christmas list. Sad, funny and thoroughly enjoyable, I want to read it again.
