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.

de gournay

SHE says one of the most exciting days when THEY were building this house was when the de Gournay wallpaper went up in the guest loo /gents /cloakroom /powder room or whatever you like to call it. The vanity was copied exactly from a Georgian table but given longer legs. Pretty painted waste paper bin from Pigotts Store

The open top basket was bought from Sibyl Connolly in Dublin (years ago) immediately upon being told by Ms Connolly that Hubert de Givenchy  had bought a swath of these baskets. ............SHE insists SHE is not shallow!


  1. Absolutely divine wallpaper!!!!! I would be excited also!!! Love the green!!!!

  2. I agree - it's lovely. I'm a big fan of Chinoiserie wallpaper

    1. Yes all the designs de Gournay do are wonderful

  3. So very lovely! I'm especially excited to see a photo of the Sybil Connolly basket! The fact that Givenchy bought them would have enticed me to buy one, too!

  4. SHE has some lovely pics of Sybil Connolly's house and garden taken the day the basket was bought and SHE had a long chat with Ms Connolly about the very chic M. Givenchy. SHE has loved reading about Sybil on your blog too!
