Tuesday Holiday with friends.....................



Success! well first time lucky I think, French Macaroons and I made them yesterday for today...I'm rather pleased with them especially as I have a rather cranky 2 door Aga with an attitude...so I tried them out on Claire this morning.................
Look gone...............I might try some pretty colours next.........
                                              my rash purchase.............................

                                             such vintage rooms....................

Bought a new house today...car boot of course....but I fell in love 
there are lots of plans in the pipe line for this little lovely......

                                         milky sunshine enticing me to relax....................

Now I am going to settle down to do some sewing in my cosy corner ..........
isn't it nice to have a day off work and to share it with friends............thanks Claire xxx

Happy Easter...................................




I wanted to say Happy Easter and share with you some gorgeous pictures from a beautiful blog
Rosemary makes the most beautiful  items and I am totally in love with her Ex Votive Gift Tags
 (see below)....
see them in  her  Etsy Shop
 To visit it,  is to dream,  it really is full of delicate and very beautiful creations.
I wish you all the most wonderful and happy Easter Holiday.
Lots of love........

Abandoned but not forgotten.....................












Can you ever imagine being so poor or desperate you would repair your bra to its last breath..........no neither could I...yet I am drawn to buy and photograph and treasure these tender pre- loved utility scraps..I suspect it says more about me than them...............what draws you into its world?...............

PS  Tuesday evening......Please if you are just looking at this post please read the comments that I have been left..they are quite beautifully written and speak of thoughts from the heart, and I am thrilled that you my blog friends have written them, they are far more fabulous than what I have put in the post and you have all made my soul soar with these kind words..thank you so much xxxxxx

Compromise... do I.... should we....do you?

My finds today


and today


and also today


Are they looking at us...... or are we looking at them.......I always wonder..................

Car Boots......never disappointing ....the excitement....the treasure...peeping, turning, dusty dirty, colours whispering......  a greeting , a hug, a friend.
 Time on wings takes flight through the ages of wars and memories forgotten treasures.... lost things....  buttons..... bits...........................
Then... I run for the train...run like my heart is bursting  have I left it too late..no! just got it.....another day....another day at work.. not being where I really want to be.... another day and my life slowly bleeds into the compromise.............................
