This is the way I walk to the shop.....

i could drive there in 5mins but walking along the river 
(which takes 25mins) makes me appreciate the beautiful world around me..
so you see..even the boring jobs can be made fantastic!
Take time to enjoy everything you do today 
vintage love xx

being poorly or sad is exhausting!
so look for inspiration in whatever you do...

After time spent travelling, moving house & recuperating I'm back with more vintage malarky.. now with a slight side ways shift into upcycling which i'm passionate about
my next fair at Matlock on saturday 15th june - sure to be a fabulous affair not to be missed!

Here's a few ideas from my recent projects.. 
(i'll have vintage crates & reels for sale)
and one that didnt quite work out....
Beautiful dog for a princess
(very easy to make!)
but look where my Edith would rather sleep...

just goes to show you can't please everyone :)
Vintage love from me & my lovely Edith xxx

well i never..
 the sun has arrived and i am delighted!
my garden is full to bursting with flowers..many are wild flowers that  just decided to flower in my new garden - lucky old me! its an adventure waking up and seeing whats appeared..literally overnight!
so i have filled every jam jar, bean tin and teapot i have with oodles of wild flowers
so much nicer than posh shop bought ones :)
my mum was a florist but sadly i haven't inherited her finesse at flower arranging (or christmas tree decorating :) 
i just stuff as many as i can in the jar and think...tada..thats fab!
well maybe not fab but pretty enough for me..
enjoy the sunshine and the flowers xx
