I love the cheerful mid-century goodness of vintage Poole pottery.
Although I don’t own any personally.
Etsy has lots.
And looking is free – yay!
Next up in my series of scrappy scrumptiousness is this little jewel of Scandi goodness.
Fruit and flowers – what could be a healthier mix?
And the colour palette is one of my all-time favourites: turquoise, green, blue and purple.
Only a scraplet to work with, so I will be sure not to waste a single inch!
I am not here right now.
I am in France. Camping.
Hopefully it is not raining.
Hopefully we are not arguing.
Hopefully, this is how it is…
Post number 5: other people’s pillows. Chosen because it has lots of nice pictures of cushions – mmmmmmm!
By the time you read this, I will be in the middle of France, hopefully enjoying le camping, le soleil, et du vin.
Or something like that.
I am happy to say that a few people seem to like my blog enough to come back again.
Some more than once.
My followers have grown. (Or rather, the number of followers has grown – I imagine that most of you have stayed more-or-less the same size).
Whilst I am taking a break, I thought it might be nice to take a little look back at my five favourite posts since I started this blogging lark, back at the start of the year.
Because some of my more recent visitors may not have seen them before.
Just click on the pics to visit the original posts.
Post number 4: mothers day musings. Chosen because it partly explains why I hang onto stuff.
Post number 3: shed envy. Chosen because it sums up how I suspect many people feel about their sheds.
Post number 2: pottery reflections. Chosen because of my hopeless sentimentality about objects that remind me of the past.
Post number 1: enchanted by ercol. My favourite post because it gave me the most views ever on my blog. The Ercol company actually said they liked it!
Here is another bit of zingy fabric goodness to brighten your day.
This 1960s pretty is less than handkerchief-sized, but that makes it all the more precious.
I wonder what it was a part of originally?
Whatever it was, I love its happy colours.
Not one I will be snipping into lightly!
This is one of my favourite summer frocks.
An Oxfam buy from years ago, it is cool, comfortable and has seen me through a good few holidays.
I love the fabric. It reminds me of vintage sheets.
On removing it from the wardrobe to wash for its annual outing – well, I can’t wear it smelling “cupboardy” – I noticed a rip!
Its at the neck, so I suppose I could just pin it with a brooch, but it might get worse.
Time for a spot of frock renovation.
Just the job for a bit of hand sewing on the sofa this evening.
Dreaming of hot days to come.
