  4. Oh my word! Last week I did a blog post about having far too much 'stuff' and how I felt I was being overwhelmed by it and was going to stop buying. And then, bang, I see your gorgeous Pyrex (I have the rectangle dish in the pink, from my aunt,) and those delicious jugs and all your pretties and I want to hotfoot it to the nearest charity shop to make sure I'm not missing anything good!
    Lovely pictures and a very, very bad influence on me!

  18. Wonderful images, all those pretty colours and lovely items you purchased. P.S. like the pattern on the shirt too, think if my husband had one of those, I'd be tempted to keep it and make something out of it as the pattern is lovely :)

    All things nice...
