Countryside Attire

There is something about the English countryside that is so lovely.

The other day, I was watching "The Secret Garden" and looking through some of our older magazines, particularly at Autumn issues—Victoria, Country Living UK and such, and found such a settling warmth to them. Perhaps its the charming, old stone cottages that have been there for centuries—their wood burning fireplaces, thatched roofs and quaint living spaces so charming. Or perhaps it's the rustic pies that make me want to reach into the pages and sneak a little piece... or maybe it's the the leaves that they show, sprinkling down a long driveway, lined in trees dressed in a myriad of shades of orange, red and brown. Whatever it is, I am truly inspired, and my eye is on England and its beautiful countryside...















Cabbages & Roses: a company synonymous with the English countryside. "With signature refined rustic style, Cabbages & Roses’ adds comfort, function and quality to homes and wardrobes." I enjoy the nod to their roots of tradition and touches of a bygone ere, with such sweet, ladylike styling, yet with some new surprises to the collection. Are you fond of their Autumn collection?
