Winter Escape

Winter Escape

I’m a little under the weather at the moment so need a little escape.
Let’s pretend that I’m this girl just lying there in the snow. 

My name is Delphine.

{via Create}

I’m waiting for my gorgeous better half to arrive…
and whisk me away for the weekend.
He’s taking me to our country cottage in the English countryside.
Here it is.
This is just our weekend escape of course.
We plan on spending a few days doing nothing but lying together in front of the fireplace, wrapped in luxurious fur blankets and smiling blissfully like there isn’t a place we’d rather be.

Something like in the movie ‘The Holiday’- you’ve seen it I’m sure.
After a few days of pure sweet nothings, we’ll head back to the city and our London terrace house.
It’s not so bad either.

You’re welcome to come in and have a look around.

So hope you enjoyed the little tour of our two homes/life.
We’re pretty fond of it all.

And of course, you know how the story goes…we end up living happily ever after.
Ah….a little diversion is such a good thing.
Hope you liked and PS…wasn’t that kitchen insanely good?

    You’re good, you. Of course I saw The Holiday! Probably my fave rom-com!
    I hope you’re feeling better, but if being under the weather makes you pop magical posts, well… πŸ˜‰

    A nice diversion from the load of cyber-shopping that I am about to partake in… after the morning blog reading, of course. πŸ™‚

    I must say that Jack Black totally ruined “The Holiday” for me. Couldn’t they have found a better love interest for the fab Kate Winslet?
    Now that I’ve got that out… WOW the pillowed bench in the dining room with the canopy? Quite the lovely escape!

    I haven’t had a chance in awhile to stop by here, so glad I got one today…great post! I NEED that bathroom in the loft! I have always dreamed of having a wide open bathroom with a vintage soaking tub…ahhhh someday! I would rather have a large bathroom than a large bedroom…do you agree?
    Lovin’ your blog!

    I love your new design! How did you do it? I am getting my new blog header soon, not sure it is really “me” as I won it and I could only choose from pre-made templates. Chose the simplest ones and could have “extra” had to pay for it πŸ™ I will try it out for a while and maybe re-vamp soon!

    Love this post by the way. Hope you are feeling better πŸ™‚

    I love stories like that, especially when the Good Fairy comes and does all the housework.
