a love of all things vintage and homemade

Another busy old weekend for me! On Friday night we went to a Tea Dance in the local church hall, a fundraiser for our primary school. All my children have gone there, but now only the youngest remains while the others have all moved on to secondary school. The theme was ‘blitz chic’ and everyone entered into the spirit of things with style. Bangers and mash, Victoria sponge, jelly and cream, and the occasional glass of wine, with music from a Glenn Miller style big band! A dance teacher came along to show us some steps and we all joined in with the Charleston and the Cha Cha Cha!! What with ‘Strictly’ being our favourite viewing just now, it was right up our street! And the decor was distinctly vintage…

Keep dancing!

Smiles all round as we danced the night away!

At the end of the evening I even managed a dance with my eldest son, a rerun of the last waltz we had a couple of years ago on my 40th birthday – what a night!

And to follow a link I came across courtesy of a very good friend – I hope you like it as much as I do…

Happy Sunday x


Good Friends July 12, 2011

I love it how with good friends they can pop round in the afternoon for a cup of tea and a slice of cake and then before you know it we’re all eating dinner and enjoying a few glasses of wine. And the children are all happily ensconced, watching a film, playing a game, spending time together. It was a perfect Sunday, just haven’t had time to jot it down until now.

Son no.3 desperately wanted to bake a Victoria sponge cake, and it had to be handmade, not in the food processor. So there he was, creaming butter and sugar, cracking eggs – he’s only 9. But he did a great job and it quickly vanished! And here it is, proudly displayed on my favourite charity shop vintage plate…

Good friends, good food, good music – that’s what it’s all about x

Hello and welcome to one and all who stop by – pull up a chair, have a cuppa, let’s chat a while.

I’ve wanted to do this for a while, to write, to share my thoughts and projects, but I never quite got it together and thought I couldn’t really do it. But then, recently a good friend died, and what I learned from him was that if I wanted to do something then there was no reason not to, so I am inspired by him to try.

So here goes. This will be a space for my ramblings, my plans, my everyday endeavours and hopefully a gallery for my finished projects and other little crafty things that catch my eye.
