Its been all about the kids this week- the most important things. Often on my days off we go to Milgavie town centre, mooch around the shops, the park and then have coffee. We have our favourite cafe and our favourite seats, where the two of them can stand up at the sofa at the window!

I love my Mama, that's me and her up top. She loves my brother and I very much. I am very lucky to have such a great person as my mama. My daughter has been ill for the last two weeks and finally yesterday we got to the bottom of it. She is now on the mend and giving her sweet smiles again. How I love her and her brother and how hard it is to be a mother when your wee ones are poorly. Thank goodness for families and the support they give you. xxxx

here. Her blog is a real inspiration to me as it shows her beautiful home and family. She lives in the Netherlands and makes lovely jewellery out of buttons. It must be great if your hobby becomes your work- I too like Bjor love buttons. I wish I had kept my Nana's button box!
Her home is a crisp white backdrop to amazing textiles, pottery and other vintage finds. I slipped in a few pictures of her home too. Beautiful!

We did a little bit of thrift shopping- the usual Saturday morning visit to the Salvation Army- just for the spectacle and the amazing furniture they have. A slightly rainy park visit and ended up in St Louis for lunch. It reminds D and I of how Cafe Cherubini used to be when the Italian family owned it- you just can't beat a family run neighbourhood cafe which does evening meals. One of these days we will get out alone in the evening for the music nights they hold!

A Merry Mishap is one of my favorite blogs. Jennifer who writes it is a super nice person and makes great jewellery. I was very excited when this little parcel arrived all the way from Idaho! Great summer jewellery, the pale taupe Geo necklace in the top pic is so sweet and the grey earrings go with everything. Take a look at her blog, great style inspiration. Oh and the shoes... my current favourites.....
Is it just me or is my neck a bit giraffe like!!

Me, the dress and my bubba. She was a bit poorly but soldiered on through the day, the wee soul. Finn was a great page boy and performed his duties admirably. Such a special weekend and great to see both families together and catch up and meet new faces.

Recently my Mum brought me the red dress, washed and ironed and now my daughter can wear it.
When I got married I wore red. It wasn't a grand statement on my part it was just what I had always known I would wear and for me it was perfect. In my Dads speech he talked about the wee red dress pictured here and it seemed like some things had come full circle.
This weekend I am excited as my brother and his partner get married and again I have a red dress!
