I found this lovely vintage bag today that I guess was made to carry knitting. Although I don't knit I am sure I will find some purpose for it even if it just to display with my small collection of vintage fabric bags.
This little tin was another find this week, I love the cheerful colours.
I also brought this little pale blue polka dot cruet set home with me.
Mr C found this Tala biscuit tin, he thought it would be a good match for my new yellow cupboard.
A couple of weeks ago it was my lovely girl's 18th birthday and we took a little trip to london to do a spot of shopping and sightseeing.
These pictures were taken from the roof garden of the lovely new shopping centre overlooking St Paul's and The Shard.
Our main purpose of visiting this area apart from the shops was to go to the gorgeous Beas of Bloomsbury for champagne and cake as a little treat. It certainly didn't disappoint, the cake is delicious. This is the window display outside and the inside is equally pretty.
We also had tickets to visit the newly re-opened Kensington Palace. The gardens are lovely and The Orangery a lovely place to to go as a treat for afternoon tea.
Inside there was a lot to see , a mixture of very old and very new.
There were a number of Princess Diana's most famous dresses on display
along with some iconic photographs
and newly commissioned art.
The building itself is elegant and very historic with a fascinating history.
