a picture post from my bookshelf...

I don't know why, but I start to feel pretty tired by the time Thursday rolls around...even the vampire slayer and I are sympatico at the moment...and that doesn't happen often believe me. Although she is not meant to be on my bed! Bad cat.
The first born and the 22 year old (collectively but lovingly known as the ferals...which is a highly inaccurate description but I'm keeping it!) would probably say the mid week fatigue is because I'm getting old...maybe...but I'm not in a nursing home yet!
Anyway, I think I'll reserve Thursdays for pretty pictures.  It's easier for me at this stage of the week and probably easier for you I do have a tendency to waffle on a touch! Not today you go...images from one of the books on my bookshelf....
It's got some nice advice...

...and some tranquil spaces

...just what I needed. How about you?

  1. Hey Kerry. It's nearly Friday! Thanks for the lovely pics. That one with the telephone is gorgeous. Who woulda thought to put that deco style table there?

  2. Aww, look at that puss cat! Butter wouldn't melt in her mouth!!
    Lovely pics Kerry :)

  3. Those are lovely, easy on the eyes, feed the soul type photos - thanks.

  4. Tranquil spaces from a tranquil townhouse. Very apt. I love your sense of humor. Gotta have a sense of humor, we women, ya know! To deal with "the ferals" of life.

  5. Yes Kerry, very tranquil. I feel a little refreshed after looking at them. Thanks, Have a great day.

  6. Oh, look at Buffy, the little cupcake! I don't believe a word you say about her, she's just misunderstood. Pretty picturs this fine Thursday, but I must away, I have a hot date with a drop saw! K xx

  7. Love the glass bottles. And I like the creativity behind the rope and knot around the ottoman!

  8. Such a cute Kitty, are you sure she is really that bad - hee hee!! Hope you find the energy to get through to the weekend!! Thanks for sharing your lovely book, some gorgeous inspiration:) ~ Tina xx

  9. Oh Kerry,
    I'm afraid that Buffy is the star of the show. I think that thursday's should be Buffy Day !!!! haha.
    I do love your pretty pictures and, although it's still a bit chilly here in the U.K. they have made me feel very summery.
    Try and put your feet up, Kerry and have a bit of 'me' time if you can. XXXX

  10. They did the trick, thanks my lovely..Rxx

  11. I love the 'Ferals' tag - MOTH calls all mob 'The Mutants'! Excellent job Martha, oops Kerry on gilding the Lotus Pods, they look fab.
    Millie ^_^

  12. I absolutely have to have the greyhounds on the mantelpiece pic 12! I bet you are off reading! Thank you for visiting I am mid way through book 2 and just can't put it down. Buffy looks wonderfully content. Night

  13. Hi Kerry
    don't worry my dear, that nursing home will have to wait a veryyy long time for you... cause you're too brilliant!
    Those pictures are just what I need right now..tranquil,relaxed, cozy spaces.. and maybe the vampire slayer :-)
    You know I love the two of you !

  14. The vampire slayer is too adorable. I really want a cat, but Jason and Imani are both very allergic, so I settled for my little rat-dog, 7 ib chihuahua. I like the little words of wisdom on the pages and the images are so peaceful!

  15. feel like having tea and a bar of chocolate while brwosing your book x

  16. that picture with the old telephone. i am dying for it. love it.
    cant believe that your camera takes such good shots of mags. mine is awful. i think its time i invest.

  17. Hi Kerry!
    Love the piccy of the bath full of petal - or is it a pond?! either way i would totally have a bath in there! I laughed so hard when i read that you decirbed your cat as 'truly horrible' lol! Thanks for the comment on my blog cause now ive discovered yours! Plus another aussie blogger too x

  21. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers
