Aiken House and Gardens

If you have never visited Carolyn's Aiken House and Gardens blog, stop reading right now and go directly there.  It is the most beautiful blog I have ever seen.  It is like Victoria magazine (one of my favs) come to life.  A visit to Carolyn's garden on Prince Edward Island is now on my bucket list.

The quiet beauty of her house and garden just fills my heart with peace as I scroll through her blog.  I never miss a post and in fact, sometimes I go back to look at the pictures again and again.  It's like flipping through that magazine you keep around forever to get lost in when you want to escape the chaos of your own life.  A quiet hour with a china cup of tea and Carolyn's exquisite taste.


Well now, Carolyn's own magazine (book) can be that source of inspiration for you.  I was lucky enough to win a copy of my very own!  It arrived this week and it is oh so beautiful.  The photography is stunning, the words stirring and the colours uplifting.


Oh the colours...they send me into rhapsodies....the pinks, the blues, the purples, the aquas and the greens...oh the many shades of green.  Seeing this garden makes me feel greedy.  I want it to be mine. all mine.


I want to sit in this chair and drink tea and eat homemade buttermilk biscuits with berries and cream (Carolyn includes her recipe).


I want to slip into this bed with my magazine and enjoy a lovely afternoon nap.  Just heaven!


And the best news, you can order your own copy and I would highly recommend it!  I would have ordered one if I wasn't such a lucky duck and won one....Enjoy!
