Spontaneous summery purchase

I know you won't believe me when I say that Mr J and myself don't get to spend a lot of time together because I'm about to tell you about a pretty purchase I made when Mr J and myself popped out for a day of walking, talking and sitting in a beer garden.

Mr J has just changed jobs and so instead of working 13 days on 1 day off, he now works 12 days on 2 days off.  

Middle B was elsewhere and Big G was at home doing teenagery things.  Mr J and I saw our chance and made a run for it!

We didn't get far, we walked to the high road when my eagle eye spotted a little poster... 

This isn't the actual poster - I am not a hobbit!  This is a postcard sized flyer that I took - I love the 60s vibe it has to it.

..... my feet turned left and before you know it we were upstairs in a lovely pub that used to house the trams that ran up and down Tooting High Street.  It is aptly named The TramShed.  Lovely pub, every once in a while it hosts vintage/handmade markets.  Normally only a handful of stalls, but today there were many.

I was instantly drawn to a stall (oh how I wish I had taken a photo) and in particular this lovely item of Liberties print loveliness....

I picked it up, I stroked it, I placed it over my wrist, I put it back, I went to walk away, but then decided NO!  I must have it, it is so pretty, so unusual, so yellow, so Liberties, so I bought it.

The lady who makes them is also rather lovely too.  

I wanted to share her work with you all - do pop over to her Etsy and Folksy shops.  Equally spend sometime at you will see why I couldn't leave without a little something.

Til next time xx
