    Looks nice, Stirling. When's the call round for an RR decorating party..? :twisted:
  8. Love the picture of your mug on the hearth ;)......

    This is such a nice story, really quite touching when good things happen to people. It looks lovely Stirling, all the best and here's hoping you have many a happy hour planting bits and bobs in the garden, they are such peaceful places.
    P.S. A couple of brown and white teatowels would look great your kitchen (gallery) ;) They'd match nicely :)
  9. PPS, Wikinson's do a lovely range of mugs and crockery that don't break the bank BTW. :)

  18. That does look good, much more modern, rather elegant and stylish actually.
  19. Thank you Sol, have been wanting to do something like that for years and finally I had the opportunity, egg box foam either side of chimney breast so I do not disturb my neighbour, as I said earlier will be here till they carry me out in a box.
