Vintage Horses and Tea Pots

Standard

imageIn the park near Beaumaris castle we discovered this definitely vintage rocking horse. I remember them well from my childhood ( OK I have a long memory!) We used to have one of these horses on all parks. It was not unusual to have all five seats taken and other children stood on the side. They were surrounded by gravel or concrete on the floor, not this cushioned rubber Health and Safety now dictates. We did have strong knees and I’ve still got a gravel scar to prove it.

I thought that these horses had all gone to the stable in the sky but we stumbled across another one in Llandudno a few days later.

Whilst in Beaumaris we enjoyed a cup of tea and cake in a vintage style cafe. We went in to do some research for our new Vintage Venture soon to be launched,and purchased two lovely tea pots. These were a fair price as tea pots are proving quite expensive to find. Watch this space as I will be telling you all about our future Vintage Tea Party in the next few weeks.

Pili Palas Nature World

Standard

I have had no blog ability due to being WIFI less during most of my recent stay on Anglesey North Wales. Not far from home but a World away from reality. I went with Darling Daughter and her family. The weather was amazingly good, the beaches fabulous and the holiday a joy.

We spent a day at Pili Palas Nature World. I have to admit that I was very sceptical but pleasantly surprised. The first area that we arrived at was the Butterfly area which was lovely. It was tropical and had lots of beautiful butterflies ( the clue is in the name!)image image

Such gorgeous fragile creatures.

See you all soon!
