Not so long ago, though it feels like forever away now, Mr. Bloom and I took a short break. We did have a lovely time and managed to pack a lot into a few days - we were lucky to get a bit of sunshine too. Top of the list of course, was thrifting, but we did squeeze in a little sightseeing and taking in of the sea air. As holiday posts can get rather long-winded, I though I'd just give a pictorial precis.
Pretty quayside appartments spotted in Chichester
Clock towers snapped in Lewes
I loved the cheqeuered steps and planters outside this restuarant.
A visit to Brighton Pier and the Pavillion were obligatory.
I'd like to say we stayed here, but nothing quite so Grand for us!
I wish we could have stayed longer, but I'm sure we'll be back that way some day. As for the thrifting, well I did pick up a few things...
Fabrics and flowers, including some beautiful millinery poppies on a vintage hat.
My favourite purchase has to be these gorgeous lace panels - 4 of them. They don't have a home yet but I'm sure I will find one, I'm thinking I might pin them around the top of my wardrobe.
In a way, I'm a bit relieved that summer has ended as there won't be quite so much thrifting tempation in the way of car boot sales and days out. I've run out of room to put anything so I think maybe this autumn and winter I'll be making space. Then I can start all over again next year! :-)
For anyone who is in the vicinity, Castle Coombe boot sale is on again this weekend- I am planning to go selling, so long as it doesn't rain!
