is my favourite word. Today on Celie’s blog she gave us a blow by blow account with pictures of the fitting out of an extension they have built on to their house as a future home for The Matriarch, as Celie calls her MIL.
The excitement for us came from seeing a beautiful site for the lamp Jock made from a blown-down beech tree, carving a two and a half metre chain from a single piece of wood. We offered it to Celie, as we no longer have a place for it, and she is as excited as we were. Jock managed to coil it round into a wine box, ready for sending to Illinois from Northern France. Now all we have to do is to find a shipper! The lamp in the old house, (above, beside my poppy field quilt) and below, dismantled and Ready to go. The desk (bonheur du jour) was also made by Jock, from scrap wood. He’s a woodaholic!
