I have had a fabby 3 days off and feel totally refreshed. I have had a day of sleeping, a day of shopping, a night of Northern Soul and a day of cleaning and cooking. Yes I did say cooking. I think I have turned into a 50's housewife, but don't worry , it won't last, the novelty will wear off again soon.!! But at the moment all I seem to want is nourishing, nutritious home cooked food, lol.
I bought a new slow cooker at Asda, a bargain reduced from £28 to £9 and it is beautilicious. Yesterday it was stew and dumplings, today it is Stir fry. Just look at the spinach. I can feel the iron feeding me just by looking at it.!
And yellow peppers are my fave
These are simmering away nicely, ready to be made into crumble
and tonight it was home made raspberry trifle. Yummy.
The spare bedroom has been tipped out and completely reorganised, and I have started on clearing under the stairs. All four of my kids have moved out into their own flats, but strangely enough most of their belongings seem to still be residing with me.!!!
As I mentioned yesterday we spent the day thrifting in Leeds and I picked up some fight little corkers.
This was the first and I just couldn't resist it. It will look fabulous in my bedroom filled with tulips, don't you think.??
And this has to be my favourite of the day. A fabulous vintage handbag, which I took out with me last night, and received many a compliment. This is the front.
And this is the reverse. How frikkin cool, or what.!!
And I couldn't resist this. Well they do say beauty is in the eye of the beholder.!!
This hair clip was too delicious to leave behind
and how about this one, made from an old typewriter key.?? AND it has my bestest number on it...Fancy that.!!
A\nd this little pinny just sort of followed me home.
Good day's work all round methinks...
And that's not it, I'm saving the best treasures till tomorrow, but here's two little sneeks.
I discovered Solanah's blog this weekend, and I am totally in love with this girl and want her wardrobe. Well not just the wardrobe but everything in it as well.
Just check out this fabby tutorial for styling a head scarf. look out for this one coming your way on the blog, lol. You can find it HERE
And if you loved that you really need to check out her whole blog, Vixen Vintage, but be warned you will be there all day...
Can't remember which website I got this next one from but I just adore it. Pure 1950's glamour..
And how frikkin badly do I want these.???
HERE. Might need to return the red Dr Martens, lol.
I'll leave you with a journal page from my ledger.
