The last few weeks

The gorgeous afternoon tea at The Randolph in Oxford! The sandwiches and cakes were ALL delicious! We managed to eat it all, except the 2 pieces of fruit cake that we brought back for our hubbies, see how kind we are! The surroundings were beautiful, it all took place in the Drawing Room.

Afterwards we went for a walk along Little Clarendon Street which has a number of gorgeous shops that we mooched around in.It was a wonderful afternoon out, Thank you Karen for my Birthday treat!



One of my wonderful Birthday gifts from Hubby.I love the colours and it's so beautifully made! He bought it from here http://www.folksy.com/shops/KimMcBirnie




An Anniversary picnic by the river near here www.cotswoldswebsite.com/north-leigh-roman-villa.htm



Recent purchases. A tiny egg cup from the boot, isn't it sweet!

Pretty trinket dish.

My sister kindly thought of me when she saw these gorgeous serviettes in Aldi! I love them and I shall use them on greeting cards and in decoupage!Thanks Sis

The past week has been spent painting my lounge, but I shall show you the piccies in another post!

I'm off to do a spot of crafting now, heart garlands I think!

Hope you all have a great week!

Hi Rachel, I’m going to do a photography course! There were so many I wanted to do…I will see how this one goes and maybe do another one after. If work wasn’t so busy I would have done two courses. But you have work to do at home so it might have been a bit too much.

Have a lovely day…love Lou xxx
