On sunday to celebrate valentines we took a trip to the coast...
Too Walberswick on the suffolk coast,we go there reguarly. It is a lovely piece of coastline & at walberswick dogs are allowed on the beach all year round which is great.

It was a wild & windy day which is part of what i love about the coast..the sound of the sea crashing against the shore & the wind blowing against your face giving you that healthy glow.

It was murphy's first trip there as you can see the boys loved it!!

Look at my scrummy babies..isn't murphy catching up with osi now?

Who ever has the 'treats' is the centre of attention!!

We had a super walk along the stoney beach followed by a lovely pub lunch sitting by a real fire looking out at the boats...bliss.

Well this morning mr postman came bearing parcels....

This lovely wrapped little box contained...

These lovely seaglass earrings..can you see the little starfish etched into the silver? These were from mr H for valentines..bless him. I adore seaglass.

The second lovely wrapped parcel contained a cushion i ordered from etsy which i will show you later.

Emma who made the cushion even added a crocheted flower to the sweet.

A sneak preview of the cushion..i am waiting for the right size insert.

The third parcel wrapped in this fab hessian contained....

This FABULOUS seagull cushion another find on etsy (which i am a bit addicted to at the mo!!),as you probably know i love anything coastal,when i saw this cushion i just fell in love with it!!

It just reminds me so much of cornwall..i always know i have arrived in cornwall when i hear the cry of the gulls..especially when we stay in polperro.

It fits in just right on my has a blue & cream stripe backing.

And not forgetting this little gem again from etsy all the way from israel..this wonderful little porcelain tealight holder. I love dandelions & seed heads,it looks wonderful when lit!
Another week gone,where does the time go?!!
I hope you all have a wonderful the way patience is still sitting waiting patiently for a new home!
Bye for now. xx

Vintage Woman...

Hello my lovelies...long time no blogging. Sorry for my absence the days & weeks just seem to be flying by at the moment!
Anyway my lovely mum has been having a sort out & came across this fab 'woman' magazine...i think it was my grans.
Dated August 19th 1939 can you believe?

And some is in colour,some of the pictures are stunning. The girls in them look like old film stars.

See girls we were even worrying about our wrinkles in 1939!!

And not so good 'craven virginia cigarettes' something we try not to incourage now a days.
I bet they didnt have to step out side for a crafty one then!!
Woman to woman spread.

Seashore treasures a favourite of mine..i would have been okay if i had been around in 1939.

Ooohh la la..lingerie

I love this black & white pic....

We all love a coupon!

Sorry..silly me.

The magazine is in great condition for 72 years old..i am going to sell it in my unit but i thought that i would show it to my blogging friends first as i know some of you really love vintage goodies so if you are interested please leave me a comment & i will come back to you.

I thought that you might like to see a pic of my baby boy...hasn't he grown? Murphy will be seven months on sunday.

My gorgeous boys with their daddy..on a day out to the seaside.

Have a lovely weekend everyone. x
