As I was looking for the last picture I found a few of Gran & Grampy hollidaying in Mallorca in the 70's.
The one of Grampy stood by the coach always reminds me of "Del-boy", as both were dealers in this and that, Grampy mainly in vehicles, however stories from the war lead me to believe that my Gran never went short of nylons!
very Burton & Taylor!

My usual Saturday haunts were not very forthcoming today, a few of the bits that I did buy are pictured here, a lovely green/white/tan Harris tweed riding jacket and strings of beads. I did stray off the vintage with this lovely Lipsy, looks like vintage crepe floral mini ra-ra skirt, I think that I will be displaying them on dolly like this at my upcoming fairs, she may not go to Honiton as I have to use my car and she will take up too much room, unless I put her in the front passenger seat & leave my Mum at home!

Dresses do not suit me and these looks have always been the sort of clothes that I have worn since I can remember, I live in cut off jeans in the summer & have been known to live in them with tights & boots (years ago), so I have a ready supply, I have seen a pair of tweed shorts in M&S, I just need a few fair isle style cardis, I have a rust/orange/tweedy biker style tweedy cropped jacket, so it's just a case of mixing and matching. (I did buy a couple of vintage tweed hacking jackets recently however the one is for a child and the other a fitted size 14)
The only question is am I too old to go short short?
Without the skinny jeans I think that these looks would suit Michael, he has a lovely pair of vintage brogues, and vintage tweed jacket, again I have been looking for ages for a vintage fairisle tank top for him, and it seems that the way to wear a tweed jacket is with a hoody.
So although my inspiration comes from, JW, Joules, Whitestuff(I love their shop fittings),Toast, Cabbages & Roses, etc,etc, I will be re-vamping & re-mixing my existing clothes with a few new items, and a new pair of boots & a pair of brogues, I would wear vintage but it never fits me!!!!
So do I take the plunge?????

I have collected Toby Twirl books for years as I used to read them as a girl, they are far superior to Rupert, the illustrations are lovely & the stories can be a little bit scary, I used to lie in bed at my Gran's with the blanket pulled up around my chin when I read them - just to be on the safe side!

Now then Flo, "who owns a barn like this?"
the barn was like an Aladdins cave, if you didn't get there try to the next time!!!
Before we got to Lizzie's we stopped in Watchet, a tiny little place but with a little harbour/marina &.......
