the bag

My friend Joan was so kind to send me  the Orla Kiely bag (they where sold out in Kent).
Orla designed this bag for life for Tesco. The bag costs 4 pounds and for each  bag sold 50 pence of the sale price will go to CLIC Sargent. Green living & charity...that sounds good!!

Enjoy your weekend.

sweet flowers

I saw  those pretty coffee cups in a vintage shop in Brighton and I still don't understand why I did not buy them...they are so pretty (flowerpower).

At the moment I'm so busy but I try to make time for my yoga class & body pump. I noticed if I don't sport, I'm more lazy & got less energie...
  • My fav food in the moment  Asparagus 
  • My fav music Imelda May
  • My fav snack  Blueberries
  • What did I buy this week? ...a museumscard
  • Most of my time I spent in my garden, working on a cottage garden
  • Love the work from Julia Humpfer
  • Reading the Cochroaches by Jo Nesbo
see you very soon

Badgers Hill Farm

At Chillham, a beautiful  small Kentish village you can find Badgers Hill Farm. I tell you I love that place.
It's a working cider farm with a mini zoo and they sell locally produced food. Great place for coffee and garden accessories.

Royal Wedding Tin

From all the royal wedding souvenirs ,
this biscuit  tin from Marks&Spencer is my fav one.
The design is by  freelance Illustrator Kate Forrester,
definitely a collectors item  but then it was sold out right away.
For me Marks & Spencer make some great tins
and I "m looking forward to see what they will bring out this Christmas.

beach walking

Did you know it is good for you to walk on the beach? Besides the beautiful view and the great people watching, walking in sand or pebbles makes you burn more calories.

There is also a lot of things you can collect like shells, driftwood and glass.

Or just  take a good book & some coffee... enjoy & chill

PS. I posted this before but that post disappeared with all the comments...  Sorry.

sunday brunch

I love brunch ! The Habour Cafe (10 The Parade) in Margate is a great place for brunch. The restaurant overlooks the sea front and beach. The staff is very friendly and the place looks very bohemian & cosy, very much my cup of tea.

-the work from Ethel Spowers is more then wonderful
