I can hardly believe this Abba song was released 27 years ago. Listen to it for some nostalgia!

I recently posted about old and new friends and no sooner had I done so I made a new blog friend. Michele from Cowboys & Custard telephoned me in response to a comment I left on her blog about living in Coverack in Cornwall.
It seems we had both lived there in the 60s and despite not remembering each other we had a long conversation finding that we had known so many of the same people , reminding each other of some we had forgotten. Thankyou so much for contacting me Michele and that 'journey' down memory lane.
I wish you all a very Happy New Year and a prosperous 2008. Thankyou all for your comments and friendship throughout 2007.(Hope you enjoy the YouTube Happy New Year above.)

Last night I had a dinner party for more of my close friends, the newest being Jane (co website owner) of 2 years and the longest one of 17 years. We toasted 'Friendship' and I also thank all you new friends I have made through blogging for visiting my blog and leaving comments. I wish you all a very Happy and Peaceful Christmas.

Many years ago I came upon a jumble sale. Unfortunately it had more or less finished and already someone had come in to collect all that was left for rags for his business. I happened to spy this bear that nobody had bought and I rescued him for 5p. How could he have got left with nobody wanting to buy him? He has obviously been well loved and cuddled and so I brought him to a new home where he has now lived for about 20 years.
The weather was absolutely beautiful and it looks as though it will be the same this weekend.
Having decided to concentrate more on linens and kitchenalia we are having a SALE on our website where many of the items are half price. Do pop along and have a look.

...........and here is the 'after'.
I think it would look really pretty in a bedroom or bathroom and is far too nice to use outside! I had intended putting it on the website but now want to keep it myself having put so much effort into its transformation. If I do the other one exactly the same then I can at least sell one of them. Hope you like the finished product too.

The other pier is still open and houses a funfair etc. We went here many years ago when Rosie was much younger but we had more important things on ours minds like SHOPPING! We visited the new Cath Kidston shop,
and a huge emporium of bric-a -brac and antiques (I could have spent all day in here
We were both feeling exhausted on the train coming home and Rosie wasn't sure whether she should have bought this red beret. I thought I would try to link the music on my blog to the content of the post, hence the titles of the Beatles and Prince's tracks.

Talking of stylish things do you like my shoes I bought in France? The French women are so elegant and their shoes are just so different. I couldn't decide between the two so had them both!
We have yet more people coming to view the house tomorrow (I do wish someone would buy it) so I shall be using these cloths but I hope your weekend is more of a shoe-shopping than dusting sort of weekend.

We did plenty of shopping,
I took so many photos of all the wonderful buildings, it's hard to choose which to publish here.
Of course I was hoping to buy lots of French antiques for my website but didn't find as many as I had hoped. Brocantes seemed to be thin on the ground in this area.
I did manage to find some lovely linen, though, and it has definitely whetted my appetite to go back and search for more.
