Had a short visit to London this weekend.
What a beautiful sunny day. Checked out a couple of Church services, a couple of shops, a couple of coffee experiences and a couple of visits to The Royal Marsden.

A narrow London bridge.

Checked out the massive and amazing shop Anthropologie.
Did check with the lovely staff there to make sure it was ok to take a couple of photographs.
As my next door neighbour is a big fan of this shop, It was great to finally see why she gets it! Wow, what a shop. 

Wow. Loved everything about the Anthropologie shop.

Very large hand crafted teapot.

So much attention to detail on the floor, walls and ceiling!

Detail of the engraved wooden wall.

Display of painted colour swatches.

Old books everywhere on display.

Old pages from books.

Marbled books and brown cups.

Old wooden shoe sculpture.

Really cute large mis-matched lamp shades.

A massive selection of different styles of knobs displayed in fun wooden boxes.

Chunky mustard and cream yellow floral towels.

Really liking the cut-out dress patterns as wallpaper.

Painted landscape dress.

Really cute.

All the clothes and accessories were displayed in such a fun way.

Bright red and blue patterned chair.

A selection of mismatched mirrors.

 Painted old wooden spindles from staircases sculpture.
 Also can see you see the 3 cute dinky chairs. 
They had original inspiring artwork everywhere.

Didn't realise that Anthropologie did shoes as well until we were leaving.

Only had time for a little shop. 
Brought some gorgeous colourful pyjamas and some strawberry lip balm there for my lovely sister in law.

Main reason for visiting London was to visit my beautiful sister in law who is bit poorly.
Wow I am in such awe of her and my lovely brother.
Not enough words to say how amazing they both are. 

Amazing building where she is at the moment.

Took a few photographs of the light streaming onto the many stairs in the Hospital.

More stairs.

Big, big painting of a tall man.

 Nice stag.

They have such a range of beautiful art and glass work there.

So in awe of the size of the hospital and the kind staff that are taking care of everyone.
Big, massive thank you to you all.

Then it was the journey home into the sun.

So So So wish I lived so much closer to London right now.

But am so sending up some mega big ones to the big Guy for my lovely brother and sister in law.

Take care for now.

Little One's Cakes,

I nearly forgot about little ones's birthday party at home.
Just a few photographs of the party food.
I absolutely love my mother in laws chocolate cakes. I never ever ever say no to a cake made by her.
They are so yummy and tasty.

My Mom came round with the cute cup cakes.
I love it when I don't have to do much in the way of cooking! 

One day!

Vintage Picnic,

Blue and White Stripy Vintage China.
We grabbed a rare moment of sunshine this week to have a picnic outside which was inspired by the lovely blue and white stripy Cornishware look.

As mentioned previously the little ones love eating from china.
So have to get them trained early to like it! ha ha. Actually I think my other half has broken more china then them! Probably because he does most of the washing up and also we have a belfast sink!

There is nothing like fresh grapes and strawberries for an outside picnic.

And they love just plain pasta.

I absolutely love jugs. I have quite a collection now.
Must stop spending!

Sorry got carried away with photos.

This is such a wide stripy cup.

Love the reflection of the tablecloth on the cup.

Like the flowers and the spots,

and the stripes.
Like a lot of things don't I!

Bird's eye view of the strawberries.

More spots and flowers.

My newest cutest fan of picnics is baby Elsa at a few weeks old!

My red floral skirt and coffee.

Two different blue and white stripy bowls.

More strawberry pictures.

Blue and white spots and stripes.

Can you really ever get enough of spots and stripes?

I love this blue striped and floral teapot.

From every angle.

Think I have used this Teapot for a photo shoot with Chris before.

Love this plate, it has a nice blue rim that you can't see very well on this photo.
My beautiful friend Beth came round with scrumptious chocolate and beetroot brownies.
Just what the Dr. ordered!

Dark and light blue spotty cups.


Two different stripy jugs.

One for milk and one for blue flowers.

Amazing light

and shadow.

Sorry so many photographs, this was only for 5 people.
But it was a lot of fun to use pretty china.

Hope that we have lots more sunshine for lots more picnics this summer.
