Bottles and a splash of colour

Short post today, I am busy busy busy trying to find enough images, bits and pieces, embellishments etc for 12 ATCs for a swap with a very dear bloggy friend. 

The weather is still pretty horrid, not much rain today, but boy oh boy, it is so stormy. I was afraid some of our trees would come down, it was that bad on top of our hill. But all is well, phew, they bravely stood up to anything the weather god could throw at them.

Taking photos is a bit iffy at the moment though, because the light is still so very dull and because these old French cottages have small windows, it can get quite dark inside. So the picture of bottles on the windowsill, which I took for this week's theme at the Our Beautiful World blog, is not terribly exciting -

But also on the windowsill is a vase with some gorgeous and quite unusual roses, which my darling husband had bought for me last week. The colouring is quite amazing, splashes of yellow on the red, and once they had opened up, they looked almost like carnations from a distance -

They are a most welcome splash of colour on these dull days.

As always, thanks for stopping by, toodlepip xxx
