Fragments & Glimpses...

Baby dolls, we survived the week and it seemed to be quite an eventful one with both Robin Williams & Lauren Bacall passing away - both were favourites of mine since childhood, such a shame, they'll be missed. I've been crazy busy since coming back from holiday, lots of things I've been making, getting my girls ready for school - yes my youngest will go to nursery for half a day now - my oldest went back to school today, my house will be quieter. So, I thought it the perfect time to leave you with glimpses of my life lately!! Some of you that follow me on instagram will have seen some of these & if you're not following me there - why ever not!?! Feel free to join me there too. Enjoy my dears & have a wonderful weekend. See you back here on Monday for more fun!

Loves & Loves

Me (yes with my glasses on & my tights of awesomeness on too. Don't be fooled by the coat, it was freaking hot, I took it off after) sitting on a tree stump watching my girls play on this amazing tree house below (they are obviously not in the picture because I don't put them on my blog to protect their privacy) We loved this little house (below) & decided one day when we have a big yard, we'll make one of these too, haha!! But, it will be a thousand times more awesome & be called 'The Dainty Dolls House' of course *wink*

My new friend and I!! This bear is sooooo cute, I love him. I gave him a giant hug. You can find him in York outside Stonegate Teddy Bears - York's Original Teddy Bear company - there is a tea room as well & you can have a teddy bear type tea party, I Looooooooooove it so <3

Bright and gorgeous flowers, Yorkshire is one place that is never without flowers of all kinds  everywhere, just beautiful!! 

Me standing at the ruin of Knaresborough Castle in Knaresborough overlooking the bridge and landscape. Sometimes looking across here reminds me of Charlie and The Chocolate Factory at the end when he's flying in the glass elevator.

On some of the buildings in Knaresborough, there are these window murals of Harry Potter, William Shakespeare, Bono and others. I'm not sure who did them, but I will look into it. I thought they may have had something to do with the Tour de France as it passed through Yorkshire when it was on just before we got there. But, I shall see *wink* I took this one as one of my blog friends loves Harry Potter!

Me sitting in front of the jail entry door of Knaresborough Castle (all that's left is just a ruin of a castle really - will show me later) I'm laughing because my husband was trying to take the picture and the wind began to blow strongly and it was blowing my dress up. I was trying to keep it down but missed a time or two, haha! Always seems to happen to me!!

Fountains Abbey - one of the largest and best preserved ruined Cistercian monasteries in England. I'll tell more about it soon in it's own post. It's such a stunning and tranquil place!!

R E C E N T  P U R C H A S E S

Above - 70's Vintage dress bought on Ebay. You can't see so well as it's not a close up, but what appears to be 'dots' is actually little velvet polka hearts!! Ahaha...I love it so much. This dress is amazing & it was meant to be, since I love hearts on my clothes and things. Will show on the blog soon.

1950's Pink Ruffle Bed Jacket - I have wanted one of these for ages now, but never found one that says 'me' & while in York, I found a vintage shop in the Shambles called 'The Antiques Centre York' & one step through the door to the clothes, I spotted this straight away and ran over to it, I didn't care how much it cost, it was mine. Thankfully, it was cheap as chips and fit perfectly. I also bought a sparkly gold handbag from the 60's along with it. Seriously this place I purchased it from is amazing, floors and floors of all kinds of Antiques and vintage. Most definitely going back there!

Vintage/retro Dresses (Above & Below) Bought these from ASOS Marketplace, never done so before, but I spotted them and loved the colours. One on the top left is from the 70's, Top right is from the 50's and the bottom is from the 80's.

Yes, this pompom head gear above was made by me, I have a load of things I am making at the moment, some I may sell, others made for me. I'll see. But, I love pompoms, so I made this. Think I'll make one with giant pom poms for a crown!! 

Have a great weekend dolls

Your friend is very handsome - I bet he gets all the girls? AAAAAHA!!!! Further evidence of your flashing habit ey Kizzy (you do know that I am only joshing right?). I am now convinced that Knaresborough is a place I should make a point of visiting - it looks utterly charming.

  44. Hello Kizzy. I love this post a lot as it helps us take a glimpse into your life right now. It is a pity the death of Robin Williams & Lauren Bacall. The former such an inspirational and good man. The latter such a beautiful and talented lady.

    The treehouse is awesome and I love how your treehouse would be called TDDH! Also, I enjoyed all the sights that behold you which you've shared over here. All the vintage dresses are lovely. What great treasure trove of discovery and possession you have there.

  45. This week has indeed been a eventual one and the fact that Robin Williams is dead is still unbelievable to me.
    However this are some amazing pics and i love ur vintage outfits. Those pom poms are so cute, well done!
    Hope u can enjoy your freetime.
