Making a grey day blue..........






  
On Sunday we had the most wonderful afternoon, we had the most gorgeous afternoon tea with lovely
company and yummy food. It was a grey old day so it was nice to put on one of my favourite vintage dresses and a blue velvet coat. The blue enamel butterfly brooch I am wearing is my most precious brooch, it is from the 20's and is the same design as the tattoo I have. 
Happiness is a blue velvet coat,
a blue vintage dress,
and a blue butterfly.
