Back to reality

Well we are back from our lovely holiday in very sunny Cornwall. We had beautiful weather and a really fantastic time.

Lots of rockpooling and delight at catching a crab.

Beautiful beaches with white sand and clear blue sea

Delight at finding Cath Kidston, then disappointment that all items on my wishlist are sold out!

Stunning scenery

Beautiful Mevagissey

Fun on the beach

Better luck with the shopping in Joules!

Finding an unexpected car boot sale and finding these fantastic crochet blankets. The multicolour one is huge. A bargain at £2. The smaller ones £1.50. I almost felt guilty buying them at that price, as the wool must have cost more than that. The lady told me that she makes them in the winter when she is bored. The pink one and green one will be finding a new home in the nursery while the other two will be right at home in the vintage caravan.

So now we are rested and ready to continue witht he ever growing list of projects in the fifties household. Progress with the shed / summerhouse has resumed and next week i will hopefully make a start on decorating the inside. I managed to pick up some lovely union jack bunting and an enormous union jack flag on holiday too.

I have also decided on the wallpaper and bedding for the nursery, which we will shortly be making a start on.

We have a certain someones 3rd birthday aproaching fast and so thoughts are now turned to that!

This morning we have woken to thunder and rain. Not good when we have a weekend planned in the caravan at an outdoor proms event. We had planned on a picnic, smart dress and deckchairs in the sun. Now it looks like waterproofs and umbrellas! The good old british summer!

Happy thrifting x

Good to know you had a fab holiday FG, hope you took some time to put your feet up too!
Can't believe how soon the little one will arrive, and those blankets will be lovely for the nursery.

Love and blessings
