Card and Lily Pie

As yesterdays #photoadayaug word was card, I thought I'd share with you a photo of a badly battered and bruised credit card courtesy of yesterdays day out (I shouldn't be let out!) 

But it was fun!

Firstly I met up and spent a wonderful few hours with Julie at Lily Pie Paints etc. which will be her fabulous new home where she'll be teaching, creating and selling arty crafty goodness!!!
Her website (which is still under construction) is (bookmark it now gals!) Pop on over in a few weeks to see her, the place is amazing. 

There's a gorgeous tearoom, furniture room, vintage room, paint room, workshop room etc etc etc all the Annie Sloan and Farrow and Ball paints have been painted on these wonderful old drawer units, aren't they amazing! So much Inspiration! 

I bought an old mirror and a couple of small pots of paint to enable a makeover (I know I said I wouldn't buy any, but, but, but the mirror neeeeds it!)
Can't wait to start on this project which I'll share very soon...

On my way home through Maidstone I just happened to be passing TK Maxx and well it just would have been rude not to (Kieran was at a sleepover and I was able to mooch and wander to my hearts content!)
Now as you may know sometimes you can visit the aforementioned store and nothing catches your eye, today though everything caught my eye. All I can say is it was a good job I hadn't taken a trolley upstairs, my hands could only carry 3 items. Here are two of them, the other shelfy type thing is in the boot of the car with the mirror which I will probably take to the Midlands with me next week, so watch this space.

First is a wrought iron/storm/bell/candle type lantern - because we need another lantern

and the next is a burlap stenciled lantern - because we need another lantern
please ignore the ring mark created by someones OJ yesterday....

 Have a great Weekend!
