Vintage fairs and Crochet Wears

Hello all, Are you having a wonderful weekend so far? I have had the loveliest Saturday. This morning we got up early and had coffee and breakfast out and then ventured into cardiff to a Vintage Fair. I was in Vintage heaven. I could have spent hours and hours walking round the stalls and looking at the beauties, but we eventually bought some bits and then ventured on to a 50’s style american diner where i had my first chilli cheese dog (wanted to try one since watching man v food, im such a big fan!) and thick shake. It was immense! we then came home and my little darling boy must have really missed me and gave me unlimited kisses and hugs all afternoon. We snuggled up on the sofa and watched some old tom and jerry and some Peppa Pig so lovely!!!

Crochet cardi: from the inspiring girls of Red Velvet

    do you knit or crochet yourself? i knit, but i never end up wearing the sweaters i knit. it's quite sad, really.

    i really love your hair – it allows you to pull off wearing brighter colors quite well.
