Had the girls round on Friday evening.
I wasn't on best form as I've had a bit of a bug but it was lovely to catch up.
There were a few cupcakes left - not for long though!
Nadia brought around the most beautiful bunch of Lilac from her garden.
We have lilac tree in our front garden which I've been cutting little posies from since it started flowering - love the intense purple colour of these ones though.
The smell of lilac is just beautiful, and when the air is warm, walking past a lilac tree is just heaven.

I love 'Liberty' Florals.
These new little 'Liberty' Flower Earrings are perfect for summer.

It can be handy being a jeweller.

Made these earrings to wear with this vintage Ungaro top, which I teamed with black leather shorts.

Screamed eighties and the scary thing is I remember this look the first time round.

Begs the question mutton dressed as lamb? Hey ho.

We live right next to the Union Canal in Edinburgh.
On Sundays in Spring and Summer the Canal Society hire out boats in the afternoon.
We hired one today, and although the weather wasn't great today the sun shone the entire time.
A wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Afterwards we walked along the canal into town.
Had coffee and cake at the bakehouse in Victoria Street. I've walked passed many a time dying to go in, but it's not practical with a buggy.
Today we managed and it was really worth the wait. Excellent baking and vintage styling.
