I braved the spiders in Dad's cellar at the weekend and found the long-forgotten 1966 Raleigh RSW 16 of my childhood. Yesterday morning was spent riding up and down the lawn reacquainting myself with it's quirks and today I've tackled the main road to visit the local shop.
Over the years it's lost the green tartan holdall from the back, I'll have to trawl the boot sales and eBay for a suitably kitsch replacement.
Cycling and maxi dresses don't go well together, thankfully it's still warm enough for shorts.
|Vintage embroidered blouse (Thursday's jumble, 20p), Crochet waistcoat (another score from the jumble), velvet hot pants (70p, car boot sale), vintage hide belt (50p, car boot sale) and 1970s Foster Grant sunnies (20p, car boot sale)|
I was thrilled to win the lovely Lisa's blog giveaway. Look at how prettily packaged my parcel was.
Here's the amazing contents.
A Tunnock's Tea Cake tea towel (try saying that after a few), a vintage tea towel, a beautiful Hornsea cruet, a handmade dishcloth, some herbal tea bags, a gorgeous lustre ware tea cup and saucer, a pretty gypsy caravan card and a hippy-tastic skirt. There were also some Tunnock's Tea cakes but a certain someone had a hangover yesterday and scoffed the lot, bad boy.
Hope you've had a fantastic weekend.
