And this is her blog.
We have decided that everyone must have a friend who uses words like “nappies” (diapers) and “nattering” (chatting with friends) and is called “Mum“.
Would that be called a “cuppa“, Sarah?
“Hey there sugarplum!”
I (Vanessa) had a dream come true several years ago when my husband and I visited England and Scotland. My hands-down most favorite place we stopped was in the Cotswolds. Imagine cobblestone streets, cottages with thatched roofs, wisteria winding it’s way over brick walls and picturesque pastures with stone hedges.
When we got off the train, I almost cried!
Ok. I did cry.
And you know what?
Sarah lives there!! Or, near there at least.
This is her garden.
The green-eyed monster would be rearing his ugly head if I didn’t like her so much!
You see, I’m a wannabe.
I watch Masterpiece Theatre classics.
I read Austen and Bronte.
And, I’m working my way through Volume 2 of the Sherlock Holmes novels.
I’m what you call an Anglophile.
Wikipedia defines this as “a person who is fond of English culture”.
Yep…that’s me all right!
But, I have come up with still another term to describe myself…
I’m a “Sarahphile“~A person who is fond of Sarah.
Because, you see, Sarah is the real deal.
She values tradition and beauty and all of those things that we imagine about an English way of life. Yet, she does it with her own twist.
She is also a bit…..ahem….”cheeky“.
And she never hesitates to mix the old with the new. Hence the name of her blog,
Modern Country Style.
Here is a taste…just a taste, of what she shares there.
I told you it was just a taste. You will have to head over there yourself to see more!
And while you are there, here is what you will also find.
Someone who is gracious and kind.
Someone who makes you feel as though you and she were the only 2 bloggers in the world…just “nattering” away together.
Someone who has been a VERY lovely friend to the girls At the Picket Fence.
Someone whom you know, even without having ever really met, is truly genuine!
And yes, someone who is definitely Cheeky!
That is why Sarah from Modern Country Style is our Blogger of the Week.
And that is why we are honored to also call her our Friend!
