We hope you have had a very Happy Easter! We have been quite busy with visit from Gran – Children. My Gran – daughter’s love playing (carefully) with my Tasha Tudor (endorsed) dolls. Isn’t Emma Rose’s shawl pretty?? She has been busy knitting shawls for her twin cousins Sally – Anne and Sally- Marie. If my  pretty Tasha Tudor style brooches have been catching your eye, they are on sale through April for 20 % off!! click over to my soelegantlyvintage.etsy.com shop.


We do hope you are having a lovely start to spring and that flowers are starting to bloom in your part of the world. We are noticing bits of ‘Spring Green’, the trees are budding out their new leaves. Oh my, the Bougainvillea are so happy!! The hibiscus and the knock off roses did real well all winter ~ keeping me quite happy with their lovely blooms.

Now my patio garden is another story!! Last summers heat was really hard on my poor little cottage patio ~ botanical buddies and a few ~ died! Then I lost a couple more this winter ~ my poor rosemary Christmas tree ~ I loved it so…but it’s gone! So I will be sprucing up on the cottage patio real soon.

In the mean time my locale  grocery store as been filled with beautiful blooms – just tempting me!! How did your garden / botanical buddies fare through the winter! Are you making your gardening plans? I would love to hear ~ please do share!!

Rosemary, Thyme and mint. As you can see I have caved into temptation, as I had full intentions of doing so 😉 I was just waiting for a fresh looking arrival.
