Random, Remarkable and Revealing

There is a '25 Things' linky party circulating around the blogosphere 
and I thought I would join in. I decided to put a different twist on it and 
attempt to list 25 remarkablerandom and revealing things.

Are you ready?

1. I left a reply to each and every one who commented
on my last revealing post, 78 to date.
If you left a comment...I left a message for you. :)
You are remarkable.

 2. I am paying it forward with a remarkable pool of flowers for you.
Feel free to grab it and pass it on.

3. I recently connected with a remarkable blogger,  Janelle @ A Library of Design. We met
 via a bookstore in Australia, a book about Paris ...and now a blog I love.  She used to live
in London, suggested great sights for me to see and I have been ticking them off my list.

4. Something random about me...my winter breakfast consists of Scotts Porage Oats (below) and a handful of frozen blackberries, blueberries and strawberries that melt into luscious deliciousness. 
A tasty random.


5. I am loving following blogs via email, it has been the best reading!

Follow the blogs you love for remarkable reading.

6. I love this painting by Percy William Gibbs. 
Just had to say...it is simply remarkable.

7. I had a wander thru Wimbledon this week, stopped in a cafe
 and popped in the shop below. Random window shopping is fun. 

8. More randomness... I am steaming my way into perfection with a new iron. 
The Tefal Pro Express Steam Generator..it's so cool... 
Random and revealing.  (I iron my tea towels)

9. Tika on Twitter alert. I laughed myself silly the other morning. 
I tweeted during my morning walk...each time the text went thru, 
my phone made a tweet sound... and Tika came running.
Very random but hysterical.

10. Pretty in white...a snowy scene on another morning walk. 
Remarkable snow.

11.  It is invasion of the Gilmore Girls..in our home.
My daughters were gifted the complete DVD collection for Christmas.
Seven seasons...mother is now addicted. 
 Random viewing


12. Argan Oil is my new love
Dry winter skin and a grumpy Jeanne no more.
Remarkable Moroccan oil.

13. In my postbox today... 
Good listening and reading..The Queen,...Life Changes 
and Indochine. A random collection.

14. I added a new folder to Pinterest this week...Island Living.
Without question, the most popular photo to date..here.
but my favourite photo today is the one below...
A random sight.

15. Ring Ring..I had a phone call from a blogging friend yesterday.
It made my day.  She is remarkable. :)

Wow...15 things and that's a lot of work!
So far....I only managed to reveal that I like oatmeal and ironing tea towels!
I seem to find just about everything in life remarkable...with few random thoughts.

I have more, but need a rethink...
In the meantime, if you would like to learn more about
the linky party for '25 random things' you
can visit the lovely Elizabeth here. She has the inside scoop.
It is best to stick to the rules...it is much easier!

    Joy always and have a fantastic week ahead.

  14. Jeanne,

    I love this post! It is always nice to learn new things about you. I absolutely love the photos from your morning walk, and I am so excited that you did manage to get a but of snow before you moved, I am sure you could have done without the bitter cold though.

    Oats are a favorite of mine, I love them with cinnamon and brown sugar. I will have to try them with the berries, a new experience.

    I hope you have a wonderful week and manage to get a little more of your paperwork done.

    I cannot wait until you post the rest of your random thoughts, I am sure that they will be as interesting as these.

    Take care, Elizabeth

  15. Love all of these images ...especially the pink French macarons!
    Just stumbled across your lovely blog & have signed up as your latest follower! I look forward to popping back for some more gorgeous inspiration.
    Melissah from Country Style Chic

    1. Welcome Melissah...I will be right over to do the same! :)xx

  16. Dear Jeanne,

    Thank you for graciously mentioning me in your beautiful blog. I'm really touched. You've been doing this a lot longer than I have though, so I do feel that it is ME who is learning from YOU.

    We have a Tefal Pro Express steamer too. I coughed with shock when my partner came home with it (the price could have almost bought us our own entire cleaning company!), but now we love it! (And we iron our tea towels too.)

    Love the image of Tika. Look how muddy she is! She must have had a great time. The pix of the snow is absolutely gorgeous. Hope you're taking some of these beautiful images in high-res in case I can persuade you to write a book about it one day??!!

    Oh – and Wimbledon is pretty, isn't it? Wish I was there, window-shopping with you.

    Hugs from Australia. Janelle xx

    1. Janelle..you are very welcome. I love sharing the good word amongst friends. :)

      Yes, I have to admit, I am finding that steamer a marvel...my French tablecloths are looking table worthy once again.

      Tika was muddy and was smelling 'eau de swamp' until I cleaned her off...and she transfered the smell to me.

      My photos were taken on the iphone...I mix them all up. I have been thinking on an iBook for the family, but deciding which photos makes my head spin. I am a happy photo blogger at the moment. :)

      Window-shopping with you would be fun...you know all the best places! :)xx

  17. Jeanne - you are remarkable my dear! It's always a pleasure getting to know you better!

  18. I love this post...and I am going to try Argon oil for sure.

    I was reading your previous post as well...wow, you have a lot going on. We are moving from CA back to CT, but after reading about your adventures...it's looking like no big deal. I'm very intrigued to follow you along as you move from England to Vietnam.


  19. Absolutely loving your randomness and, I have just bought some Argan oil on your recommendation! Thanks :-)
