I wanted to put these photos about our new soulful sparrow shop on the new blog that Mary and I have for it, but I still am not able to access that blog from my home computer.
For the last year, it has become a regular practice for Mary and I to meet on Mondays to map out our plans and/or finish projects together. Yesterday we met at the sparrow house to go over our business plan for our new shop.  Just as we were leaving and locking the door, we heard a sort of crashie sound.  The high winds yesterday caused a large limb to fall partly on the car behind ours. Being the good neighbors that we are, we removed the limb from the car and noticed how beautiful it was. (the limb, not the car). Never ones to turn down a gift, we agreed that it would be perfect for the shop, so into Mary's station wagon it went.  It is perfect for our color scheme and style that we want.  Also, notice our freshly painted walls.  We love the way things are coming together.  We feel it's a good sign!

P.S. As usual. I've really messed up this post.  Nothing is where I want it to be and I don't know how to fix it.  Maybe it's a good thing that I have not been able to blog on the soulful sparrow blog.  Right Mary?

The limb has a great look. I probably would have picked it up too.

Hi Judy,

there are a couple of links with info for events in Shropshire in June. I think a lot will be Jubilee or Olympics related.




There are a couple of good antiques centres in Bridgnorth and one in Church Stretton. If you visit the Cotswolds, enjoy the scenery but don't do your antiques shopping there as it is all rip off prices. If you enjoy gardens there is a beautiful garden near Wenlock called The Dower House Garden at Morville - not huge but very English. Also, this weekend we are hoping to visit a house near Bridgnorth called Upton Cressett - it looks beautiful.


I can also recommend a place near Ledbury called Hellens, the ulimate in shabby chic. Very faded grandeur, delicate and beautiful despite the building needing a lot of attention.


You might have already visited. If I think of any more places you might like to visit I'll pop over and leave another comment. Enjoy your visit, it's a wonderful part of the world.
