My house is a mixture of particularly placed, delicate, beautiful items & scary but cute characters. It has a slight identity crisis. Some of it belongs in a trendy fashion mag (yeah, that's what I like to think!) & some of it's just a jumble of scary/cute.

Little pink clogs brought back for me from Amsterdam last week sit alongside my scary car boot kitties, cat from Tokyo & a hand painted tile.

Cute little ice lolly moulds, from this shop, you should really go check one out if there's one near you! Just a shame it doesn't seem to be sunny anymore!

This little Japanese paper balloon I brought back from Brighton, he sits with all my Pepe & Friends. The turquoise clock was an ebay bargain.

Things that make me smile...

This weekend I bought this wintery ear warmer & manicure set from Primark. The manicure set has files, scissors, clippers, cuticle trimmers, loads, for £1.50 & it's leopard print too, amazing!

I've had this little teapot for a while now, I love the little illustrations, I especially love the dressing table (third pic) what a find!

cold, windy & shiny

There's so much you can do on a day off when it's sunny. There seems like there's nothing to do on a wet & windy & humid day that follows weeks & weeks of hot weather.

So we went for a wander around the biggest antiques shop. And bought a few things.

Have been in the very sunny & warm Brighton this weekend. I couldn't believe we were on the beach in swimming costumes.. in the UK... amazing! Had the best time & so did the special hen :)

We've also had a mention on a couple of blogs last week, one here & one here so thank you, lovely ladies.

New to the shop today & also on Not on the Highstreet are these hand cut aluminium leaf earrings. I think they're pretty cute, even if I do say myself :)

Pink Phones, Shakespeare & Cream Teas

This weekend we went away for the weekend to Stratford upon Avon & stayed in a lovely Gothic hotel, if you ever get a chance to stay in one of these hotels, GO! You get dinner, breakfast, champagne & canapes (& this time we got a cream tea too) thrown in with the price of the room. It's pretty reasonable, but depends in when in the week you go, weekends are a little more expensive... obviously, we went on a Sunday night. We went on an open top bus & learned a little about Shakespeare, looked in lots of little shops & managed to stay out of all the fudge shops & little cafes.

This is where we had our cream teas, in the drawing room.

This is where Shakespeare was born, interesting, eh.

Cute little footprints in the pavement.
Wanted this pink phone a lot.

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

It's 6.25am & I'm up finishing some bits ready for the new week. Yesterday was a boiling one & I was at work, booo. Have just gone outside so see where the cat was, called her name & was greeted by her running from a few gardens down squeaky-miaowing a little hello. Cute. That makes up for the early morning.

I remember this time last year, I lived in a flat & couldn't open the windows as she kept trying to escape. At least we won't have a flaked out hot kitty again...

Have a lovely weekend whatever you're doing :)

Meet little Phoebe, she's the black & tan daschund puppy. My mum picked her up today, I'll get to meet her tomorrow. It's making me want a little red one to go with my little LuLu. Not sure Pickles would be impressed though.

It's my birthday this bank hol monday. So I'll be busy eating cake, having bbqs, spending time with lots of lovely people & generally having a rather lovely time. It's edwina.simone's first birthday too in a couple of weeks, since things changed somewhat.
So stay tuned for some birthday offers & special things happening over the next couple of weeks!

It would make my day is pickles wore a little tee like this.
