I’m Sorry!

Standard

I’m ┬áso sorry not to have found the time to blog for a few weeks but I have been soooo busy. A poor excuse I know!

We have been on a road trip in Damnvan1 to the Lake District, Cumbria. It was cold, sunny, windy, clear, crisp and fun. We walked, talked, drank wine, ate too much and had fun! We struggled to take down our pop up tent ( Where Benji dog sleeps) and I’m sorry I didn’t film our hilarious efforts for YouTube. We travelled to the Yorkshire Dales which were awash with Bluebells, we had picnics, and scoured charity shops, we watched old DVDs and had fun.

Vintage China Cake Plate

Day seven and eight of my personal earring challenge! It’s going really well. All my jewellery is slowly getting sorted. Earrings paired,necklaces un knotted, beads repaired and Jewels stashed safely. (Not many/any jewels)
Today I dropped the two pairs of earrings onto a vintage china cake plate. Now use your imagination there could be a delicious coffee and walnut sandwich cake sitting on the plate. However it wouldn’t last long. I bought the cake plate from a charity shop in Lewis when on holiday with a friend about three years ago. I didn’t pay a lot for it but it has joined my vintage treasures. It is fine china and has fluted edges with no damage. There is a delicate pattern of roses which look lovely covered with coffee and walnut cake crumbs.
