Guest ♥ 1 ~ Picture An Hour

I'm very excited to present to you a new feature on the blog. I receive many comments telling me how much you love my 'Life in Pictures' series and indeed I enjoy seeing this little glimpse into the lives of others too. I was originally inspired to start my own version of a 'Picture An Hour' from following those of Niotillfem and The Clothes Horse. And so, I had the idea to start contacting some of my favourite bloggers whose days I would love to see in more detail and present them to you here so that you can enjoy them also.

My first guest is Mademoiselle Poirot, a relatively new blog find of mine. Her documentation of her day, confirms to me we have many things in common, in fact her day last Saturday was almost identical to mine, right down to finding yarn at the flea-market and of course crochet! Here is her day... thank you Mademoiselle Poirot for agreeing to take part...

Picture An Hour. Or thereabouts.
This day last week - Saturday 6th November 2010

9am - Breakfast of porridge, coffee and yesterday's Times... didn't have the time to read it yesterday you see

  18. Lovely! I adore these lifestyle blogs that show how ordinary people can lead beautiful, luxurious, cozy lives...it's all about noticing the beauty around you, or making the time to prepare some beauty like that simple but luscious lunch.

    Now happily following Mlle Poirot!
