Scenes from the last Week

Old bottles in the window of the Forge at High Peak Junction, Derbyshire.

Lovely felted seasonal hats in Cromford, Derbyshire

Ricky the Pom - my next door neighbour's dog. We walk together on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Morning coffee at the ceramic cafe and a look in the seconds section at Emma Bridgewater's factory shop, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent.

Egyptian Geese at the JCB Lake at Rocester, Staffordshire

This morning, during a short break from the rain, the clouds in the distance looked like snow-capped mountains glinting in the sun.

All too soon the angry skies were back, the light darkened and the rain returned.


  1. I delightful peek into your wonderful world, Rosie. Thank again for letting me tag along. I always enjoy it...

  2. So cute Ricky the Pom! How many bloggers will get green with envy looking at the Emma Bridgewater shop's picture?! :) Mugs have appeared in our shops only recently

  3. You certainly know how to spend your days. As you know, I love Cromford. Great photos. I'll have to get to that Emma Bridgwater shop - but only if they are cheap!!

  4. I'd love to be able to visit the factory shops in Stoke, the ones which are left that is. My late Mum brought me so many pieces of modern seconds of yellow/white Cornishware back, from when she visited their factory shop in Derbyshire, and a lovely blue/white clock, which I treasure. I find clouds so fascinating, your photos are excellent. x

  5. Hi Rosie,

    Great sky photo! I love those wizard hats too ~ now where did I put my wand?

  6. Lovely pictures...when I look back at the pictures I made ...seeing them on my blog..it's always like the travel I made, or the garden I pictured gets a new dimension..it somehow gets 'bigger'..or more real..
    It's a wonderful way to relive your adventures in this world...your very own history !
    Have a lovely day dear..
