Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Oh, my dear friend Maria.
How lovely of you to have done this post. You are so kind and a very generous person. You really do spread the love !!
I have loved that Paul Massey house for ages. I had the photos saved about a year ago and then, when Sophie Dahl's programme started (I do love a cookery programme !!) I couldn't believe that they had used that house. It's absolutely gorgeous, isn't it ? It's funny because, it is in the same place that our daughter lives. It is just outside the centre of London in a very trendy area. Most of the houses are Victorian/Edwardian. My daughter lives in a similar one but not quite as wonderful as that one !!!! She wishes that she did live in Paul Massey's house but, as it's up for sale for £1.45 million, I don't think that she can quite afford that !!!! haha.
Once again Maria, many thanks for your lovely words. You are a true blogging friend.
Take care and lots of love. XXXX

Hi Maria,
Totally off topic but what kind of camera do you use? Do you use a special program to get the soft edges thats on alot of your pictures. My best friend was looking at your blog and so we were wondering :)

C'est La Vie said...

we have the same mind! I LOVE THIS
i think i get it from my mom, she always had to have a big kitchen, that was the one part of the house she would look at. My dad did the rest, as long as there was a big open kitchen she was happy :)

Simply Mel {Reverie} said...

I'm a huge fan of Jackie's and her beloved obsession with white! So glad she pointed me in your direction because now I have two wonderful ladies who adore white as much as I do!
Beautiful blog!
