Inspired Words – Terri Anne Image by Merge Photography 

Wrapping up what may be my last Friday Roundup for a little while, as I rest up for the final few days and wait for Baby Herringbone to (finally!) make an appearance! I can’t believe that it’s already March, and that we’ve moved out of Summer (where did you go!?) and into Autumn, waiting for our newest addition. The wedding season is also well and truly in swing, and it’s busy everywhere you look! What a lovely time for a new life to say hello.

So here’s a lovely roundup from our specialty blogs this week, I hope you enjoy all the loveliness – not to mention giveaways and open days to take part in! And potentially – au revoir for now!
