lazy summer weekend

We had a nice and lazy weekend.

After a nice long sleep, we went to the beach. On the way we managed to find a flea market. This year there is a new trend. Lots of new flea markets are popping up and most of them are close to the beach. I bought a few very nice cactuses and a vase.

We ended the day with a nice dinner at the beach ...and a little dip in to the very cold water.

Hope you have a good week coming up,

PS: nice blog Foxs Lane

PS: now this is a workshop I would love to do Shibori Dyeing with Indigo

fine & green

flowers from my garden
Mister Kay and I spent a whole day vinyl hunting. We both have a list and we both
have a very different taste of music. So we never know what we come home with.

Only 3 more weeks of school and our long summer break is starting. We are counting the days and looking forward to endless long summer nights.

see you soon,

PS: we got some tickets to see Pokey LaFarge, sure that will be a summer highlight.

summer flea market

We stopped at a summer flea market on the way to the beach. Managed to find some fabric, vinyl and a scarf. I was very tempted to get some of the West German pottery.

Tell me what was your best vintage find the last couple of weeks?

Enjoy your Sunday.

See you,

PS: soft Sunday music on vinyl Brasil

tree slice

Finally Mister Kay had time to get me some tree slices.
Also I was lucky to find a Swiss Cheese Plant
Monstera deliciosa. Did you know that
Charles and Ray Eames also had one?
see you soon,

all about

On our way to the coast this morning we passed an Allium giganteum nursery. We had to stop and take some photos, the owner was really friendly and we had a nice talk.

Hope you all have a restful weekend. I'm trying to fill my one with working in the garden, a little beach walk, dinner in the garden and some reading.

see you,

PS: we all need a Jane Austen Action Figure

See you soon and make sure you enjoy the glorious sun,
