I have been summoned for Jury Service ~ went in on Monday and need to report back again on Wednesday. I am really not looking forward to doing this, but something one must do, to make an important contribution to my community.

Have a happy week


  1. Have a nice week darling !!...but tell me what is jury service??? i don't know.....love Ria.....

  2. Bonjour Carolyn - I love your walks around London - Sloane Square always reminds me of Princess Diana. I'm wondering if you stepped inside Tiffany & Co.
    Thinking of you this week and hoping that the case is not too stressful. xx

  3. Carolyn,
    this is a beautiful shade of blue!

    Jury Duty.....uuuuggggg......may it all go well.
    A very interesting duty.

    One day I will have to do duty again. Truly hope it's not for a few years!

    God bless,

  4. Hi Ria,

    The answer to your question ~ A Jury is a group of 12 people randomly selected from the community.
    Their task is to hear the evidence of a case, decide on the facts and then reach a verdict - guilty or not guilty.
    Hope that helps.


  5. Oh tesoro!!!

    Ma guarda queste cose sono sempre noiose!!!

    Putroppo non ci si può astenere.


    Ti mando un bacio grandisssssssimo e ti auguro una splendida settimana!

  20. Hello Carolyn, Thank you for visiting my blog. Jury Duty...hope it is not too long of a day for you. I have not been selected for this job, but I'm sure my number will be picked eventually.

    Beautiful colors in your photos, spring will be here in the US soon. I'm tired or the cold and dreary days of winter.

    Have a good week!!

  21. That IS a lovely blue, Carolyn! It's the color of the Tiffany boxes. (No wonder we like it!)

    Jury duty, after many years, is no longer a duty for me....I am old enough to opt out. I'm smiling as I say that because not once was I ever chosen for a jury! So all those hours and days spent waiting over the years was wasted.

  22. Oh, jury duty sucks. Sorry you have to do it, but as you said, someone needs to.

    Love your pics and I agree, the Tiffany color is just too beautiful. I've never actuallyl been to this particular Tiffany (only the one on Bond St). I need to check it out at some point.

  23. Wonderful images in wonderful colors, dearest Carolyn!!!
    Jury service - is this some kind of working as a lay judge? If yes: Some years ago I had some kind of jury service, too. It was a case of sexual harassment, and I found it quite exciting to see in a real court how this is handled. I hope you also have an interesting jury-"job"! And especially I hope that your relatives get back soon and healthy from Japan!
    Hugs Traude

  24. Oh MY! I adore that pop-up book with the cool castle. It'a fantastic!

    Good luck to you this week. You are right, it must be done. xoxo

  25. I like tiffany blue...I like the store too...my husband won't even go in it when we go to chicago...LOL! Good luck with the jury duty...have a nice day! hugs, Jennifer

  26. Jury service...ick. Would rather go to Tiffany's!

  27. Dear Carolyn, I was last year in london. I love london!!! I hope I can travel to england soon!
    Big Hugs,

  28. Sounds exciting, and important. We do not have that system here in Sweden.
    And very nice picture´s too.


  29. GOOD MORNING SWEET CAROLYN! I missed this post due to busy days at school, but I am so glad to be here, in the midst of my favorite color! THANK YOU FOR ALWAYS PROVIDING SUCH BEAUTY TO PONDER and good luck with the jury duty. It can be rather boring, but I guess it must be done. Come back soon. Anita

  30. Oh Carolyn, what amazing and gorgeous images you have shared...is there any other color that looks divine!!!! It makes me want Spring to come sooner!
    Thank you for your sweet comments and taking time to visit!
    Have a good week, even with the jury duty.
    Margaret B

  31. Thanks so much for your comment darling, like always, you are so cute :D And in my last post I also share the link for my twitter and facebook page, I will be happy to be in contact with you ^^


  32. Love Tiffany too (sigh!)

    Hope jury service isn't too daunting... agree, it's good for the community though.

    Have a lovely weekend,


    XOXO Lola & Nora:)

  33. Gorgeous images Carolyn. Oh I love the bouquet!
    Good luck on your jury duty. I had it last year and lucked out as far as not getting seated. I would have thought that they wouldn't have called the wife of a cop, but I was wrong.
    sending hugs your way...

  34. Hello Carolyn! I hope all went well with your jury duty. I had to do that right before Christmas this past year, not fun but something we have to do.

    Now on to the fun stuff...I LOVE that bedroom!! The headboard is beautiful...the color and the tufting, ohhh I want it! And I'm with you on the color of that dress ~ gorgeous!

    Wishing you a beautiful day!
    Jenn xo

  35. Thanks for sharing these lovely photos Carolyn dear... Have a wonderful week!

  36. Beautifull, beautifull, Carolyn-
    I too love this blue,-and the bird image is so sweet.
    --Jury service! it must be a hard time ?
    Wishing you a sunny, week-end foll of smiles, dear.

  37. My favorite colour is turquoise! :)It used to be turquoise when I was a little girl, then later in life it became fuchsia, but now, it's turquoise again! :) I think I'm sticking to it, this time! :) :) I look so good in turquoise, too! :) :) I remember my first turquoise jacket when I was ten..... sighs.... :D
