september days

September has started well. Last Sunday we were invited to the Oxford Flickr group Picnic by my friend Candy Pop, so I packed my favourite straw basket with homemade pizzas and little cakes to take to Christchurch Meadow. 
The lovely vintage Avon Pomander below, I actually won on a giveaway featured on Candy Pops's blog and it wasn't even a fix! It's now hung up in my bedroom. Thank you Candy Pop!!

Yesterday was very exciting, we went to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London to see 'As you like it.' The performance was amazing and because the theatre is so small you get to see every detail. (Sorry no photos allowed inside.) Afterwards we walked along the Thames in the warm sunshine and through the arches to Monmouth Coffee, I had a delicious ice latte and a chocolate brownie.  What could be better.
Well that's what I've been up to, how about you?


  1. It was so great to see you and I am pleased you like the pomander.

    See you soon for that blog evening!
