Hello again! I wore this last Saturday to go and meet my son. All jewellery charity shopped. Everything charity shopped except the kimono - present from my daughter.

I guess there was only about fifty yards between the deer and the road.  The walk on Sunday kick started my walking mojo. On Monday I took middle grandson out for a bike ride. We walked to Bromham; a village I lived in for ten years where I took the grandson to see our old house. That was a 6.5 m

I feel the heat...

The coral daisy type items are two hair pins and a brooch/pin. Some of the jewellery was breathtaking. Moving on... A retable (altarpiece) by Raphael about 1410. I managed to visit the Jameel Gallery of Islamic Art: Istanbul circa 1731. I didn't think to photograph the information panels so I can't remember from where and which eras these beautiful dishes came from. Now to the clothes: Alexander McQueen - 1990s Early 1900s The coat i
