Want to see another glorious 1970's print? My vintage cheesecloth blouse was one of the fabulous treats in the parcel my immensely generous and gorgeous friend Jem sent me last week.
Anyone living in the UK for the last seven days will appreciate the somewhat apt design.
With a succession of summer festivals and mid-week nights out the old finances have taken a bit of a battering and we haven't been on a proper food shop for ages.
I've had to be creative with this evening's meal, it's a vegetable quiche made from hand-made olive oil pastry and filled with home-grown herbs, peppers and onions, an ancient tin of sweetcorn, a couple of eggs and some scraps of unidentifiable cheese found lurking in the depths of the fridge. I've braved the rain to forrage through the vegetable patch and found some broad beans and peas to accompany it. It doesn't look too bad does it?

It's far too wet to venture outside for photographs so we're inside today. The Belfast sink unit was a bargainacious £150 from eBay a couple of years ago. The black ceramic knobs, wooden drainer and brass mixer tap were all car boot sale finds. The wine rack and vegetable storage were also booty bargains. The house was built in 1750 and I've no idea how old the ceramic tiling on the floor is but we know it's been there since at least 1948.
