'Memories in pattern and colour'

Tag Archives: england

It was a little while ago now, but me and my little friend Mr Bingley went for a little explore of a field just outside my village.  It is a regular haunt of ours, as it’s  a great place to let Bingley poddle about and have a little explore, not to mention eat masses of rabbit poo! (Yes what a filthy habit!)

It was literally the first sunny day we had seen for weeks, and honestly a walk in the muddy redundant potato field was bliss! So much so that I managed to lose poor Mr Bingley’s lead which meant a dilemma regarding getting the little boy back home! Thankfully my camera strap came in handy as a makeshift lead 😀

Once we were back home safely we then set about to giving Bingley his morning shower and upon finishing, Bingley hurt himself getting out the bath. It turns out after a visit to the vet, he has hurt his back and needed some time (and medicine) to recover! Hence the last picture which he was all tucked up and sleeping lots until has back was a little better!

Thankfully I am happy to say he is now back to his normal happy self, and is feeling much better 🙂

I cant wait to use this vintage 1960's bag this autumn!

My Partner bought me this bag last year for my birthday when we visited Rye, East sussex, England. There are a great many thrift stores there, full of antique and vintage goodies, a great place to visit if you ever head that way! This bag had been put away over summer…but with autumn creeping closer i have got it out and i cant wait to use it again! I dont own many bags, but this one of my best ones.  It dates from the 1960’s and i just adore it!


Great British Fashion at Royal mail

I saw these stamps at the post office a few days ago, and just thought I would share as they are utterly gorgeous! Ive never been one for stamp collecting or anthing of the sort myself, but these are so lovely even i would be tempted! Great for a fashion student, or they even do a framed version for £25, not bad for a cute piece of art! My Favourite is the first stamp to the left, that Hardy Amies suit is to die for! Which one is your favourite?

Well over here in England, we have all enjoyed a long Jubilee weekend, and today things have all returned to normal. To be honest my Jubilee celebrations were pretty tame, with a home cooked cream tea in the garden with my boyfriend, followed by a Chinese takeaway, with a splash of Gin and Tonic (my favorite tipple!) and a little too much Jubilee T.V for my liking!Image

I started to get into the Jubilee swing of things way ahead of time and can honestly say it feels like i have been wearing my diamonte crown brooch for weeks, it almost feels like a permanent addition to my daily outfits, but frankly i am pleased i now no longer have to dress to suitably match the brooch. But i am sad to now put it away,  or at least for a while. If i carried on wearing it i may start to look like a sad case of ‘No i cant move on, I’m totally stuck in the Jubilee fever!’

I have owned this cute little brooch for a few years now, i bought it in Sheffield England as a reminder of some lovely times spent in the city. The first time i ever wore it i lost a stone from it , and i immediately went home that day and tried to find a replacement diamonte on eBay without much luck. Needless to say years on and i cant be bothered as no one has noticed the missing stone yet! And honestly although it is a beautiful brooch, it is not silver nor made from precious stones so i think it is quite lovely just how it is!

Still on the Jubilee note i just wanted to share with you this lovely vintage inspired Jubilee window dressing i saw. Having saw this i think i actually stood on the pavement gawping at the loveliness of the vintage dresses. I asked the lady in the shop about the dresses and the wedding dress is from the local museum and the pink one had been provided for the window by a local old lady called Margaret. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as i have!

Happy Jubilee to all of you!
