Dragonfly day

This was our welcome

after many years of searching 

for a house

 which will be our home,
(a table and two chairs so far)

in our twilight years!
But first we have to get Vesta in -
see previous post.

Edited to add with thanks to Milly
for drawing my attention to 
the happy symbology of the dragonfly.

Also taken from this site:
Symbolisms of the Dragonfly


  1. What a most beautiful home. This is just the sort of home I would love - big sighs :-)

  2. A dragonfly, what a welcome for me too, I love them. I once read they are a sign of good well being.
    Hope you will be very happy in your new home.

  3. Wow! I want one like that too.

  4. Lucille, it's just beautiful, full of character. Worth waiting and fighting for - if you did that is!

  5. It is beautiful and has an air of peace and calmness, I'm sure you'll enjoy your time there. What a welcome too!

  6. Such an adventure, taking on a house that's new to you. Enjoy every moment x

  7. Oh hurrah! It looks like a beautiful house, with the sort of windows I've always wanted. And what interior textiles purchasing opportunities! Lucky you.

  8. What a lovely house, Lucille. And I see you have wine glasses, so that's all the important things. Maybe a bed?

  9. Well done - at last it's yours. May you have a long and happy retirement in this very lovely new home.

  10. Oh Congratulations! It's beautiful!!!!

  11. already there are flowers on the table ... so peaceful

  12. What a beautiful house! I don't live in your country, but I have always adored the beautiful old houses and countryside in Britain.

  13. Sorry I'm late.........

    Oh my, but you must be so excited - I AM!

    Off to have a look at the dragonfly symbology....

  14. Thank you all so much. I am just allowing myself to get excited. Annie, it was not an easy road to this house and until we were handed the keys I didn't believe it would happen. Mary, the bed is the next thing on the agenda! Mise, I am covered in swatches and paint charts. Susan the flowers were brought from my friend's garden. We can see each other's houses now through the trees.

  15. Oh, it looks beautiful. Looking forward to more 'progress' photos!

  16. I am in love with your house. It is my ultimate dream house. Perfect. (I said so
    above, but it's worth repeating.)
