A shopping trip

The other day I saw this pretty Wedgewood teacup in a shop and loved it. They were having a one day sale with 25% off. This was my belated birthday gift for myself, so it came home with me.
Also I have been wanting a utensil rail with butchers hooks, for a while now and saw this one and it looks great hanging over the stove.

My daughter was featured on this Fashion blog ~ it was actually the day of her birthday and we were planning to meet up with her for lunch at a Restaurant.
I took this photo in front of the old Ferry building, makes a lovely backdrop.
The Little Fox brooch, was a gift given to her by a friend, who had recently arrived back from Finland.

Just want to wish you a happy new week.
Many thanks for your visits and the lovely comments and to new followers, I look forward to getting to know you and coming over to say hello.

  6. Hello Carolyn,

    Oh my, your daughter looks like a model! What a beautiful young lady she is. And that broach is fabulous. I think you chose a great gift for yourself. That is a sweet teacup to nestle up with a good cup of tea and a good book. It looks like you have a chef's stove. I hope it's much easier having all your items hanging right above. It all looks great!
    Happy week to you,
    Sharon :-)
