We took our last holiday bike ride today
Down to the river in the crisp early evening. The blackthorn blossom is incredible this year. I love when it starts to drop everywhere like confetti.
The wildlife is looking a bit strange locally - possibly due to genetic engineering you think?
Our boy's dislike of brown chocolate is so well known that many of us bought him white chocolate Milkybar cows this year - he has a find herd of cattle of which he is very proud!
And now some thrifty wondrousness!
This lovely tea cosy was calling to me from across the street! Sitting all neglected on the cheap table outside the store! Want to see the other side?
A few of the squares need to be restitched but otherwise it is in perfect condition and the colours are still so pretty and bright! A close up? Ok....
Every time I look upon this precious treasure I find another little square that makes me squeal with delight!
It has made itself very at home in the kitschen.
The ladies in the store were oohing and aahing over how many secrets it must have kept in it's time. How much gossip it must have shared, how many woes put right with a nice hot cuppa. Then they sold it to me for the princely sum of ..... 50p..... 50p!!!!! I felt so guilty but apparently nobody uses tea cosies anymore... Who cares?! I just want to gaze upon it in wonder and joy!
Have a lovely weekend everyone. t.x
