Small Shiny Things

Ok, so I haven't ever dedicated one entire post to another blog. But--I just have to say, that while visiting my favorite blogs today, I happened upon this one:

I just love the writer's tone--simple, quiet, and dare I say lovely.

She lives in Cambridge and has 2 children. She doesn't give us her name. She is simply MrsM, her husband is MrM, her son is MasterM and her daughter is MissM. The dog is the only family member whose name is listed--and it is Poppy "Scourge of Postmen". I LOVE that!

My mom calls my son "Master James," and so it makes sense that both she and I wold love the Magpie Files.

The Magpie Files writer loves vintage English-y fabrics, old bone china, and flowers (photos of which I would post for your enjoyment, but you should just head over to her blog instead.)

Enjoy! I do.

Well! I don't think that anyone has ever written a WHOLE post about me. Welcome to Chez Magpie which is not in Cambridge but might day. I spied a picture of your parents house in Maine on your side bar and immediately decided that I need to know you better - I love Maine.

Thank you for your kind words.

That is so sweet! Thank you Alice! Yes, the farm in Maine is one of my most favorite places in the world. I was VERY LUCKY to have grown up there. I hope one day to give my children the experiences that my parents were able to give me!
