My favourite place #17 - final

29 October 2015
This is the final week of my favourite place. My sincere thanks to all the readers who so generously sent in their photos so we could see the small places where everyone feels comfortable and secure in the lands we inhabit all over our wide world  Our final place belongs to Noreen, an Irish woman living in Turkey.

I've only just recently found your blog and I love it. It's so positive! I have attached 2 photos of my favourite place in my home. I hope you like them. This is a reclining chair that I bought about 8 years ago. It is fairly tatty by now but I love it. I sit in it with my book under the shade of my lovely loquot tree which protects me with it's broad leaves from the warm Turkish sunshine. I read and I write in this chair, I have many stories to tell. I started a blog myself and write a post once a month. I'd love to know what you and your readers think of it!

Here is a link to my blog:

  6. I have been following your blog for years and can finally comment. So I'd like to thank you for your inspiration and for sharing your family, your convictions and all the wonderful tips on living a joyful, home-made life. My own life has many similarities to yours although I live in a northern region of Ontario, Canada. I am wishing you and your family continued happiness and look forward to following your journey for many more years.
