Hand picked







The apricot tree is on the cusp of being ready to harvest.
We got up today and picked a few ripe ones, but most of the fruit is a few days away.
I found this lovely piece of apricot coloured crochet trim which seemed perfect for keeping the hair out of my face while picking.
Oh the apricots are so yummy!!!!

Rosy Posy






I do like a good house-coat and you do find they are usually lovely fabric and cotton.
Wearing them as a dress with a tie at the waist works well.
This one has the prettiest rose pattern and we are always a happy vintage girl when its roses!!!
happiness to you sweet-peas

Pick me up......






This is the dress I wore last week, sorry I have a few images and days to catch up on.
This 50's dress I have had for years and its one of those dress that is a comment collector.
Do you have a dress like that??? When you wear it people always say lovely things about it.
Its the go to dress when I am feeling a little yucky or need a pretty fix.
While taking these photographs I saw this fresh green hat in the nest matched.
That is another great pick me up, playing with hats.

Birthday tea..... silver service








Mr Warren asked a couple of days before my birthday where did I want to go for my birthday night?
I said the beach!!!!!!!
The beach it was!!!!
Fish n chips in the boot of Daisy-Boo.
It was just perfect.
After we had tea at the boo restaurant we went for a walk along the beach.
I wore my new dress from the dressmaker in the super cute vintage stripe fabric with little dancers.
Very very girlie.
I was 6 yesterday (you should always add your age numbers together) so the dress was just right.
Sweet-peas thank you for all the lovely wishes and happiness sent, you are all fabulous!!!!!
love V
