PLACES ~ Beside The Sea!

This sunny weather has made us long to be beside the sea. We are off to Agatha Christie and Daphne Maurier country to spend some time with our family hunting seashells and rocks, sipping drinks by the pier and maybe, just maybe doing some vintage shopping in Dartmouth or Totnes.

I love this oil painting, it is called 'Children Playing on the Beach', painted in 1890 and is by Edward Percy Moran an American painter. But it reminds us of St Ives in Cornwall, one of our favourite places.


  1. Enjoy yourselves! I hope the weather stays nice for you. It's a lovely picture, and one I haven't seen before. The sky looks just a little bit threatening though - but that's normal :)

  2. What a lovely painting. I hope you have a lovely family holiday and manage to squeeze in some vintage shopping!

  3. I agree, it's a lovely painting.


  4. Have a great time!!! Enjoy! take care

  5. Hello - thanks so much for visiting! I am in love with your Mrs. Black. I've had one of my own, as well as a Mr. Black who is my icon. I have owned a white kitty in the past, just like the one you pictured - one blue eye and one green eye -but she was long-haired. LOVE your blog! Will be back to visit soon!... Donna

    1. Mrs Black is most flattered. She had been told in her previous life, before us, that she was plain. Yu are so lucky to have had a black and a white cat! x

    Thank you for the award. As soon as I get home I'll get started on my end of the bargain!
