Window Shopping Wednesday 1

27 Feb

Today I woke up *AWAKE* at 4am so rather than stay in bed I thought I would get up and on for the day. Super efficiently ironing Mr S’s shirt with the help of the Princess Kitten ~ I always seem to have help of some furry kind. Unloading the dishwasher, putting a wash load in and then having the first cup of tea for the day.

Parrot Cat strolled in from his night time jaunts. Greeted by his sister the Princess. I Love how they miss each other. In the mornings she has been waiting by the French doors for him to come in and meows when he returns “his home his home let him in”, then they nose kiss and rub against each other when he enters.
The Princess has not been out at night for a couple of weeks she was getting attacked by another cat quiet frequently and her injuries have been getting worse so we have started to let her out in the day and just Parrot Cat at night. They miss each other dreadfully he waits every night to see if she is coming out too and she watches him through the door, it is heartbreaking, but keeping them both in is a recipe for no sleep and lots of mess in the morning as they play so much.

By this time I had a thumping head ache !
– Boo hiss –
So returned to bed for quick snuggles before Mr S got up for his morning run.

My head just got worse and worse and we had no milk for tea. I knew we were out and Mr S kindly offered to get some before work but I heroically said no no the delivery will arrive at 2pm. The longest morning EVER waiting for the food shopping to arrive.


My normal faithful Badger Balm failed and I am afraid I gave in and took paracetamol I’ve been managing to deal with a lot without anything recently but today I just felt like if I let the headache ride its self out I would be missing out on other things I really enjoy like todays sunshine and pottery tonight which would have a knock on negative affect. I think this once it did more good than harm.
My badger balm did help me get a little more sleep though. Zzzzzz

Sun ~ Sun ~ Glorious Sun!


Another blue sky just what I needed I was fast loosing my enthusiasm for Grey!

So the Rocking Chair and The Dog plonked ourselves outside with full intentions of doing something productive. (The Dog sun worships just as much as me)



Alas I got stuck on a bit of day dreaming ‘virtual window shopping’
Side tracked on Etsy…

The intense green colour of this beautiful dress ring caught my eye I do like vintage jewellery. I’m a sucker for a bit of Edwardian influence.


Then there were these brooches .
I’m desperately thinking how I can incorporate them into the kitchen pastel decor.



And this little brooch too I thought this might make a nice little curtain tie back if adapted.


What I was really looking for was a Royal Staffordshire Rosebud tea service my hearts desire and one thing which would finish our kitchen nicely.


I adore the subtleness of this pattern and the lady like elegance without being grandly over gilded.

Then the food shop arrived hurray!!
I quickly unpacked and made lunch as I was in direr need of substance and TEA!

Lunch ….. Rocket and baby leaf salad with king prawns, smoked salmon pâté and mayonnaise with pepper.


These raspberries or though shocking food miles are enough to make you hungry.


They are destined for Raspberry & White Chocolate cupcakes on Friday.

The afternoon has been consumed by more window shopping. (I will do a separate picture post of Wednesday Window Shop)

And I now have to get ready for Pottery and quickly prepare dinner.

This is what I shall be working on tonight my Iris tapas bowl set now drier I can add the outer leaves, I’m just hoping it hasn’t dried out to much.


Have a good evening.
