Tea at Murgatroyds

One of my favourite fish and chip places is Murgatroyds in Yeadon, Leeds. I love the vintage/retro interior mixed with the Tiffany style lamps. It really is quite unique and the service is great. Most of the clientele is of a certain age but I love that! And its ‘proper Yorkshire’. Definitely recommended […]

Cherish 2011 Set Photos

I am so blessed to attend a great church called ALC in the UK. Every year we have a ladies conference called Cherish which is a great opportunity to be girly! The designers at church create an awesome set and general loveliness around the campus and I took some photos just before […]

Handmade Vintage Button Ring

Well, after the fun at the fair I am enjoying my purchases. Unfortunately, I forgot to take cash so spent the afternoon borrowing money off my understanding friend. This handmade vintage button ring was one of my purchases and I love it! It is big on my slim fingers but […]

Saltaire Vintage Fair 2nd July 2011

I had a great afternoon at Saltaire on Saturday.  Saltaire is well know for many things and I thoroughly enjoyed Saltaire Vintage Fair with my friend Ruth. There were so many treats at the stalls and I left feeling a little dizzy and excited at all the potential and the […]

Yorkshire Peonies.

My lovely man bought me some stunning Peonies from our local farm shop Keelham Farm.  I have not had Peonies before and they are so beautiful.  A comment around the house is ‘can they get any bigger?!’ It remains to be seen!  I really loved the vintage look of this photo […]

Coloured Masking Tape – Happy!

I recently bought some lovely coloured masking tape made from Washi paper from the guys at Present & Correct. Oh the uses that I could have with it! Resisting the urge to put it everywhere in the office I restricted myself to a couple of Nutella jars that are waiting […]

Spring has Sprung!

I am a big sucker for plants! I am sure I hear them calling my name when I am shopping! One of my recent purchases was a bright red tulip called Red Riding Hood.  Stunning!!

The Olive Tree

I recently had a birthday and felt so blessed to be taken to Rudding Park in Harrogate for a birthday breakfast.  This is a super-quick photo that I took of an olive tree that is growing in the conservatory there.  Even though it is huge it’s not too overpowering.  A […]

The Great Winter of 2010.

After a relaxing, full Christmas we have just had around 8 inches of snow to start the new year.  I love snow!  I have this week off work and I can stay in the comfort and safety of our home.  But I do feel for those that have no other […]

A much needed weekend away!

My wonderful husband and I have just returned from a long weekend at Centre Parcs. Oh, it was awesome and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Robin took numerous photos of just about everything and we came back very refreshed! I don’t think I have ever seen so many ducks though! And […]

Remember, remember…

Well, its a lovely cold dark evening and I can hear numerous bangs outside! I love Guy Fawkes Night! I am excited! Today is my 4th day of working part-time at home. I have compiled a list of where to begin and am armed with my ‘Craft Inc. Business Planner’! […]
