I couldn't help but think of how my Saturdays used to be spent. When Andy and I were first married we lived in the beautiful Oxfordshire village of Thame for a couple of years. After a lie-in on Saturday morning, Andy would cycle down to the local bakery and bring home still warm freshly baked croissants and the papers. In the afternoon we would head into Oxford, or visit friends or maybe even nip into London.


How times have changed now we have 2 kids! Saturdays consist of a rude awakening any time after 7 then we spend the day driving them to their hobbies. Today also meant taking a deep breath and tidying Alex's room.


To keep myself sane I made a spring inspired memory wire bracelet using some gorgeous turquoise and lemon glass beads and silver plated spacer tubes. I've listed one in both my Folksy and Etsy shops.

Enjoy the rest of your day!


  1. I love a lazy Saturday (or Sunday with coffee and the massive paper, for that matter)

    (And the bracelet is gorgeous!)

  2. oh for the days that I could read the weekend paper cover to cover without interruptions :)

  3. Life certianly changes with kids. Mine are 12 and 18. I can't wait to get back to the days of lesiure!

    Lovely bracelet and great photos!


  4. thank you both.

    days of lesiure sounds great Danita. A long way away for me I think :)

  5. three pups mean that my saturdays begin at 7, too. :)

  6. beautiful colours :-) You'll miss them when they're gone - my kids are all grown and flown, so I'm back to my lovely peaceful mornings :-)

  7. sweettoothvintage - i bet 3 pups are more work than 2 kids!

    nifty, you're probably right about missing them. but it seems such a long time off yet
