About Me

My photo
Southern Highlands, NSW
Welcome to my world. I am a young Shi Tzu puppy who lives in considerable comfort at Lynwood Farm with THEM. I’m fascinated by the way people live - in the rooms they build, the gardens they plant, the treasures they collect and the comfort they create. THEY give me the complete run of the house, so I will be able to show you lots of pictures of life at Lynwood.

fuschia romance

why would THEY have single beds in such a romantic room ?
here the morning sun streams in - the vases are from Martyn Cook.
did you know that he & Thomas Hamel are having a lovely big auction at Mossgreen in May ?

 THEY love the old fashioned fuschia from the garden that matches the Colefax wallpaper

one of HER favourite shops is legatoria piazzesi in Venice where they make all sorts of beautiful things covered in hand-blocked paper, some of which you can see on the red lacquered desk - I think you'll love it.

 flowers, thermos, tissues, books to tease, featherbed & soft, pretty sheets - SORTED ! 

 books also for boys - this is where HE keeps his Patrick O'Brien & Allan Mallinson series of action novels - one is at sea, the other ashore. They seem to be vaguely addictive.  There is also a disturbing number of Frederick Forsyth and John Le Carre volumes.

 is this the best reading chair in the house? some people never seem to leave it

rose geranium soap - SHE says its one of life's treats - bath oils, big fat fluffy bath mat & towels - SORTED !

evening view from the bedroom window before blinds are drawn and beds turned down

 and here they are, drinks before dinner

we were all having such a good time - why do people always have to leave ?


  1. Such beautiful photos. I wish that I could be a fly on the wall at one of your lovely cocktail gatherings!

  2. I don't want you to be a fly, I want you to be a guest - come on over !
