Hi everyone, have you heard the news?
Summer is finally on its way...
Down in the south of England, we've enjoyed wonderful weather lately and I've been taking full advantage and cycling almost daily .
You know I love Lavender and I love vintage crockery. I'm really hopeless with gardens, and always claim I can't grow a weed, but I can grow Lavender (although I confess it pretty much grows on its own!) and I have a profusion right now, just outside my front door. I use it to make Lavender heart biscuits, I also add fresh Lavender to sponge cakes and I use it in the frosting too.... I have a bit of a thing for Lavender. I lay bunches of it on window sills and when it gets warm, it gives off the most beautiful aroma.
A few weeks back I found this lovely little six piece coffee set in the small town of Emsworth. Emsworth is a beautiful little seaside town and they have some lovely antique shops and quaint old fashioned pubs and they're usually crowded with locals and their dogs, so it's hard to get a seat! The community centre were having a sale, and a beautiful lady of a certain age, sold me these cups for £2. I couldn't quite believe it. I thought she meant they were £2 for a cup and saucer!
I love the specs of lilac in the cups, it's such an old fashioned pattern but I simply love it!
A little drizzly rain has come to visit this morning but hey, it's good for the plants!
Have a great day!
