I have a love of badges at the moment and whilst in London, I couldn't resist some from Cath Kidston and some from the London Transport museum - and half the price compared to the Cath ones! I love the little houses. Let's see if I can find some jackets to put them on!
Last Friday was one of those 'hump' days. British Gas had to come out for a second time to sort the boiler out. They hadn't done a good job the first time and it had been leaking onto my freshly painted ceiling in the hall. The boys were snapping at each other and I was desperate to get out and enjoy the sunshine.
Once the boiler had been sorted, we ventured out to feed some ducks along the nearby river, which also happens to be next to an antiques centre (there was a calculated plan - something for them, something for me!).
I was in a 'purchase' mood and picked up this pretty framed flower which has been sewen. Not sure of it's age but it jumped into my hands.
We then took a drive to the garden centre which happens to sell, besides plants, lots of other goodies. This jug and birdhouse also jumped into my hands. I know I have a lot of jugs, but they are useful for flowers and you can also then have them on display.
Feeling satisfied that the day and been salvaged, we then trotted home.
Lastly, the other thing to make me smile is getting this award from Laura - A Fennel Designer. Thank you so much. I would like to pass it onto all those lovely blogs I follow - please feel free to accept this award from me!
