Bits & pieces

I have so many photos from the last couple of weeks I want to share on here... it's gonna take me a while to edit, sort and finally post them. Here are a selection taken from my phone from various points over the last month or so and edited with the fabulous vsco app.
If you follow me on instagram... you may have seen some of these already (apologies!).

Beautiful peonies on sale at the local florist.


Snapped up a few bargains at a recent car boot sale ... spent no less than £3.20! So worth a mooch round car boots, it's amazing what you can snap up for 20p. That's a carpenters plain in the first photo... now a door stop in my dining room.

Homemade elderflower.... easier to make than you might imagine and dee-licious!

 Elderflower, gin, sparkling water combo.... best served with a slice of lemon & sprig of mint.
 Summer at 'The Botanical Gardens'... (above & below!)


- My little fingers have been keeping busy with various crochet & knitting projects, I have a growing pile of wristwarmers and cowls (including some kids ones) for the autumn fairs and if I find time I'll also add some to my shop.

I followed this very simple pattern and made the girls matching skirts... :) We finally got ourselves along to the rag market in town and were a little overwhelmed with the amazing choice of fabrics they have there. Jemimah chose this lovely soft red rose pattern.

Now over to the pro... my mother-in-law made these gorgeous summer dresses for the girls. So pretty for summer. If only she'd make one in my size!

There you go for now, more to follow soon... Hope you're all having a lovely summer. x
