London Sunshine

I have just gotten back back from a fabulous weekend in London. My boyfriend ran the marathon, which he did amazingly in (I managed to find him and cheer from the sidelines). The sun was shining and although I am completely exhausted now, we had a fab old time. I love going to London, although I'm too much of a Bumkin to ever dream of living there, it's a great adventure every now and again! So here are a few of my favourite, London in a nutshell pictures.

Travelling up on the Train.

Pretty Butterfly's at the Museum

Chinese at China Town

Cupcakes at Covent Garden. 

I also managed to fit in a night out, a BBQ with friends, Ice cream in Leicester Square and some vintage shopping! Now for Easter and the Royal Wedding! Very Excited! xxx

Craft Challenge #2 - Scrap Booking

The knitting has gone well, not sure if I can count my first challenge as completed as I haven't finished, but I want to knit a really long scarf - so it may take me a while! But as you can see it's not a bad first attempt and i'm quite proud.

This month i'm really busy, so i'm setting myself a not too complicated task to do some scrap booking. I love digital cameras, don't get me wrong, but there is something fabulous about flicking through your pics - So i'm going to start a scrap book for this year, obviously this will be ongoing also - but my challenge is to get started and add a bit of flair to the pages! 

Wish me luck, Love

Retro Romped

I have been a wee bit busy over the weekend, I headed up to Torquay for the marvelously amazing event that was Ruby Slippers Retro Romp. It was such a great weekend and I got to see the Flirtini's, Anna Fur Laxis and Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer - all for the first time! The Rainbow Hotel was an excellent venue, you literally felt like you had gone back in time (this may just be because it hadn't be done up in a fair few years, but it worked). I also am the proud new owner of a fruit themed 80's does 50's dress, which did belong to my friend Lorraine, but she was selling, so I was buying! I actually have matching pink pineapple earrings, which I will delight you with in a bit. This is a picture of all the acts, me on the left and Lorraine on the right managed to blag getting in to the picture! A bit stalker, groupie style but I don't care! Anna Fur Laxis was absolutely amazing, she just has it and she is also competing for Miss Exotic 2011 this year, so I wish her all the luck! If you have an opportunity see her or The Flirtini's or Mr B, make sure you do! 

Me, Mr B, Ruby Demure from the Flirtini's, Anna Fur Laxis, Infinity Favour from The Flirtini's, Mrs B & Mark Bell aka Kinky & Quirky (organisers) and Lorraine.

Matching Pink Pineapple earring and dress - meant to be!

A fabulous print I picked up from a stall, can't wait to frame it.

So exciting, can't wait for the next one! Love
