While visiting The Cross (see below), I bought this little (imagined to be...) Roman plaque.

I like it very much, even if it isn't a veritable relic.
I am becoming a bit obsessed with neoclassicism and have been voraciously reading all my furniture and architecture books to sort out my Empire from my Federal from my Georgian, etc. It is all still a blur, but my History of Furniture courses are all coming back...


  1. love that! i got one like that for Christmas, but bigger - made of concrete and its still on the floor because i have no idea how i'm going to hang it. it's way too heavy!

    your photography looks incredible. i wish mine looked that great.

  2. There could be worse things to be obsessed about. I love it.

    Ditto Joanie on the photo quality.

    Happy Easter!

  3. Hello fellow Calgarian, so excited every time I see someone that is located in the sample city as myself! I look forward to reading through your past post and getting to 'know' you more. :)

    Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

  4. I'm crazy about neoclassicism too--especially columns! Your placque is lovely!

  5. I think you need to come over and make a trip to Bath - you would love the architecture there. Great to discover your blog!

  6. Hi Terri

    I have just sent you an email with some photos of Mouse's Back in and around the cottage - I hope they help to make up your mind on whether to use the colour in your own home. I most definitely like it but it may seem too dark for some ...! I cannot remember offhand what the exact shade is of the brick wall we painted in a stone colour... I will ask my OH and get back to you. By the way this is part of the new extension of new brick - I would never have painted the original 1840s brick - just to settle your mind!!

    My email to you did bounce back with a message that your in-box may be full! Let me know if you don't receive it.

    Anyway I'm very flattered indeed that you have scrolled down the whole of my blog:-) I will now settle down with a cup of coffee and enjoy a tour around YOUR gorgeous blog!


  7. I like it! I love to shop at museum shop and buy things in historical style.

    Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet
    effective. A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between usability and appearance. I must say you have done a amazing job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!
