Likewise, wehad a real Spring weekend here in Sydney. I can feel the layers of clothes being shed. I love Spring / Summer for many reasons, the main one being that the washing machine gets a well earned break!!

Love that bird pattern! x

Hi Kay, I love your Danish finds.
My friend returned from holiday in Denmark & today gave to me a beautiful Bjorn Wiimblad ceramic wall plaque for the month of May. I was quite amused to see your blog today & find that you too have some Bjorn Wiimbald. He was such a terrific artist & cultural icon.

Love that top tin!
Still very hot here and we've just had the biggest forest fire in France this Summer only 20 km away. frightening!

I really like taking vintage souvenirs home with me, my "biggest catch" this year is an old cafe tin from France.
Would you please visit my blog, there's some news for you! ;)
