I scored a bargain this weekend with a copy of ‘granny chic ‘ by dottie angel and ted&agnes, bloggers extraordinaire.

Reader, get thee to the bookshop if you love Liberty prints, doilies or antimacassars (score double if you know why they are called antimacassars). There are some quietly lovely ideas here. Some I’ve done myself already (like my lampshade) without knowing about this book but others are brand new to me like the ‘perfectly round cushion’ which I will try one day soon. Honest.

Anyway, we celebrated the brief sun today by unfurling a vintage tablecloth and eating al fresco. Nice. My granny would have loved it.
