The sun so bright it leaves no shadows, only scars

I guess we're pretty blessed to live not too far away from this glorious coastline. I think my photos give the impression that we're always on holidays, I wish that was the case, but one needs to earn a living. Although I do like to make the most of this beautiful creation.
This frock has been lovingly handmade by the one and only Taz of Butter and Buntings blog. Taz is such a creative soul, a true crafter and sewer extraordinaire. And she's the other half of the talented team (alongside Mez) behind Hundreds and Thousands magazine. When I saw the dress on Taz's instagram feed I fell in love with that green vintage cotton fabric, and the style is super sweet. I'm so glad this beauty has found it's home in my frock collection!

This weird little bird ran over to us & seemed to be very tame. I have no idea what type of bird it is?

We popped in for a visit to this gorgeous new store called Circa Seventy.
Bec has some incredible stock, from mid century furniture to West German pottery, Barsony ceramics, kitsch stuff, vintage home wares and handmade cushions. The Captain and I were so tempted by the Don Rex Fleur lounge set, but someone else snapped it up while we were there. It was a great buy.
