Dahlias & a Blue Basket

We recently celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary. We were married in a small chapel in a village in Cornwall which my mother had decorated with dahlias. I picked these few from our garden this morning.

I also painted this vintage basket in Farrow & Ball's 'Ballroom Blue'. It was intended for the website but, like so many things, I think I may end up keeping it for myself.


  1. Wishing you and your hubby many more wonderful years together!
    L.O.V.E the hand-painted basket!


  2. Aww, congratulations! And I love Dahlias. 31 years is impressive. Maybe you should do a 'how to' blog on men and marriage!

  3. Hello, 31 years...many congratulations! Thank you for visiting my blog and your comment - I now what you mean about people "selling their wares" on Twitter - I was so excited when I got my first follower, only to find it was not the kind of follower I was looking for!! Nearly put me off for good! Rebecca x

  4. Congratulations to you both on your 31st wedding anniversary. I really do like dahlias and would love a garden full of them. A very pretty basket too. x

  7. Great to have discovered your blog, and to find someone who has been married longer than we have! I love the painted basket - I have a big collection of baskets, and I think I might have to do some painting now!
