December 31st

I'm up in Lincolnshire for New Year, and we went up to Clumber Park, for a walk around this country estate. It was a lovely place for a wander, really, at this time of year all mists and mellow fruitfulness. Plus a lovely tea shop. And on the way back we listened to Johnny Cash.

You'll notice that when I get something new, I tend to wear it a lot, as is the case with the red needlecord pinafore dress I made just before Christmas. I've paired it with my tie-neck blouse under, a blazer over, and worn it with a variety of cardigans. I'm becoming a big fan of red with powder blue - it's a somewhat unexpected but pleasing colour combination.

Dress, made by me; 1950s blouse, from a vintage shop in Midhurst; 1950s wool cardigan, estate; Jingly reindeer brooch and bakelite bangles, etsy; Beret, Accessorize; Gloves, gift from Joanna.


  1. Cuuuute hat! And you're right, powder blue and red go so well together!


  2. Really like the match, close to my favourite of red and turquoise (or is it red with anything?). Like your style anyhow, nice to pop in now and then. Have a good new year. :-)

  3. I'm sooooo enjoying reading your blog! As you can see, I began in current posts and have dipped all the back into 2010! Happily following now!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
