Look what delight was waiting for me this morning ,beside my primark wellies
I LOVE this jam and the lovely attractive jars great to use for storage afterwards
Richmond market on a grey Saturday Lovely muted colours and the bodice is all pin tucked made by Liberty.
Looks so much better in reality , I might shorten it to wear with jeans.
so, pretty I think , great for spring ,and very Cath kidston

To day started off really well with the discovery of country homes and interiors magazine waiting on the door mat ( post man obviously survived monsoon yesterday)for me , yippee! this set the tone for the day, after a yummy leisurely breakie of stone ground toasted bread and raspberry Bonne Maman jam , I love this jam ,forget booze cruises to France I would do a Jam run!! D and I decided to pop in to Richmond as there is all ways a market on on Saturdays, ,leaving our 16 year old son and his friends who slept over last night (thought 3 were sleeping over ,but there seamed to me 4 Caterpillar shapes in sleeping bags littered about house this morning as well as son !) fast asleep , D was muttering about them all been vampires as they seam to be turning nocturnal , to buy provisions and have a potter as we didn't get our jaunt yesterday.Had to check out the charity shops as theres 7 in Richmond . In Age Concern I found treasure ,the ladies in there know me by now( erm...!) and when I entered , they beckoned me in to the back, a lady had donated 10 huge box,s of laura Ashley and Liberty print dresses, skirts , shirts, Ho WOW. they let me rummage , so many beautiful fabrics, and styles, all in amazing if not new condition,(loads with labels still on), If you live near Richmond (Yorkshire) do get your self in there , all for between £4.99 and £14,99 ,amazing , I bought 2 dresses , and two shirts , some shown in photos, so lovely and classic,s from when laura Ashey did her milk maid look I wish they still did this style I feel the currant Laura Ashley have lost their way a bit and The wonderful Cath Kidston has taken over now, what do you think?? D was,nt having such a good day by now ,he was loosing his will to live, and said as we left ( me smiling broadly,and silently mouthing I will be back to the ladies!) wish you would turn nocturnal , as the shops would be shut at night!
