Summer has arrived, Weekend update!

Hello cupcakes,

How amazing is this weather?! The sun just makes everything seem so much better! I wish I could say I made the most of the sun over the weekend but sadly, as I work every weekend I had to enjoy it as much as I could yesterday, my only day off!

In the garden with Bella.

I spent most of yesterday with my friend Becky enjoying a picnic in the park and an ice cream on Penarth Pier. It just felt like we were on holidays and was so relaxing! Bliss!


I did manage to go to a car boot sale Sunday morning before work. It always seems like a good idea, until you have to get up really early on a Sunday morning! But once dragged out of bed, it wasn't so bad! I managed to find these lovely teacups for only a pound each!

You have to be patient at car boot sales, but every now and again you find a hidden gem! Last week I found a white ornate cork board, I wasn't sure about the cork background, so I covered the back with old book pages and have used it to display jewellery on in the shop!

I recommend going to a local car boot sale, especially if the weather stays like this! It's nice to have a walk around and you never know what you might find!

Anyways, I hope your all enjoying the sun! Let me know what you're up to and if you've found any treasures in your local car boot sale!

  3. Those tea cups are totally gorgeous! And that cork board... what a good idea! I'm always looking for new ways to store jewelery and I've always struggled with long necklaces! At the minute I've got mine on a tie rack, trying to keep them from tangling... but it just doesn't work well! Need to try this!
    Loving your blog, following now! :)

    1. Aww thank you! They are lovely, was glad I found them! I always struggle with long necklaces too! Jewellery stands etc. just don't seem long enough! Glad I've given you some ideas though :) The cork board works a treat! Off to have a look at your blog now, thanks for the follow! X
