The best part of having a new home is that everyone who visits seem to bring delightful blooms! I've received several bunches of flowers this week and these are my favourites; some gorgeous Stocks and Sweet Williams. I love having flowers around the house, the smell and colours never fail to lighten my mood (even when it's drizzling outside!)
I've recently dug out all my favourite pink silk dresses and jackets. They didn't get a lot of wear in London as I was always a little worried for them on the tube (it's so grubby!) Cornwall is a much friendlier environment for them. This little satin bed jacket is so sweet, it was a christmas present from my mum and it again came from our local Oxfam.
Today I've spent the day baking banana loaf which is my new favourite, it's so easy, super quick and is nearly healthy (hah!) I've also been sorting my various bits of china. I have been collecting fruit and vegetable pieces for a long time but only recently have I branched out into raspberry tarts!
I was SO excited when I found this dish at car boot a few weeks ago, it was very hard to contain myself. I thought they were going to charge me lots of money for it because I was jumping around and smiling like a loon. Anyway I asked how much they wanted and guess what? They only wanted 50p!!! It's definitely one of my best purchases ever, I have for some reason always loved raspberry tarts. We used to grew raspberries when I was small and my mum used to make the most delicious raspberry tarts in the summertime. I have very fond memories of my brother and I picking them for her and eating quite few at the same time!
I hope you've all had wonderful weekends.
