Today was my birthday and I treated myself to a day off work and slow start to the day. I caught up on some lovely blogs over a nice cup of tea and opened some lovely pressies.
I had some beautiful flowers including this gorgeous hyacinth and rose posy from Crocus. This was a lovely surprise from my sister up in Scotland.
My lovely girl knows me well and bought me some pretty earrings, a new mug for my morning cuppa and a lovely spotty glass I had commented on when we were in CK in london a few weeks ago.
My biggest surprise was this fabulous tomato red coat that I had spotted weeks ago but couldn't justify buying it for myself. This will be something I wear and wear, it has a fabulous lining and a 50s/60s style swing shape.
Mr Corner House and I then set off for a trip to Stamford which is a beautiful market town with some fantastic architecture spanning centuries. It is also full of lots of lovely shops and places to eat.
I love this shop, full of lots of lovely things including a great range of Cath Kidston and Emma Bridgewater. I treated myself to a couple of bits of Cath.
This week I have found a few charity shop bargains including this original Lloyd Loom Lusty table.
I found three of these printed 1950s tablecloths for pennies. I particularly like this one with the roses and cottage design, I think it looks very Cath Kidston but the real thing.
