Vintage Holiday Goodness

Last week I went on holiday, which is why it was all a bit quiet on here. I didn't go far, just went up the coast with my Sister, to Lyme Regis, for epic walks and scones galore.

It's such a beaut of a town, with adorable little, higgledy piggledy, independent shops and delicious ice cream coloured houses:

We did a massive walk on our first day, along the cliff path from Lyme Regis to Seaton, which took 4 hours and practically crippled us for the following day, but we managed to fit in some ace charity shopping.

We were in Bridport when I snapped this up for a pound, much to my sister's disappointment at not spotting it first:

Then in a sweet little vintage shop in Lyme Regis, called Sublyme (do you see what they did there?!) I got this gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS 1950's tea dress for a tenner! I've made a couple of alterations to it, and it is up there in my top 5 dresses now. LOVE IT!

Also, after trying on an extremely overpriced Aquascutum quilted jacket in a charity shop the other day, and seeing all the ace equestrian style stuff in Zara, I couldn't resist this scarf...

Perfect for my winter 'Balmoral' look:

Incidentally, amongst other things, picked this little beauty up in Axeminster for a couple of quids:

And to reassure the boy, I hadn't forgotten about him and the cat, I picked up a pebble from the beach to paint of the three of us on the telly:

And a postcard on the back to him and Jacques Cat...

Anyway, that's all for now... blog you laters
