Norfolk Mini Break

My family and I went for a mini break to the seaside in Norfolk.

We stayed in Burnham Deepdale Backpackers Hostel, which I have to say was very swish, with our own bathroom.
It was really good fun cooking and socialising with everyone in the large barn/ lounge area.

Norfolk was as delightful as ever, with gorgeous coves, big sandy beaches, moderate waves and happy faces.
Charlie enjoyed kiting and body boarding.

My special friend Rachael who was staying in Wells said we must go to The Hoste Hotel in Burnham Market. Wow loved it....x

Charlie and I spent a very happy few minutes in The Big Blue Sky, Wells. A fascinating shop with everything made in Norfolk.

We visited Walsingham and took the Wells and Walsingham Light Railway, a 30 minute journey to the seaside and harbour town of Wells, from the picturesque town of Walsingham, famed for centuries as a centre of pilgrimage.

It was a scenic journey with five bridges through lovely countryside with breathtaking creatures including an inquisitive hare, quails, pheasants and mother hen with her chicks...x

I have come back all inspired by the colours of the shore, marine shades of watery blue and green so I shall be using more for my statement pieces of up-cycled vintage one off finds.

Till next time.
With love x

Cobmarsh Island, Essex

Hello peeps...
It was a beautiful evening on Friday.
Charlie and I stripped off at the houseboat beach and swam all the way from our island to the little island opposite called Cobmarsh.
The water was lovely and refreshing and the fish were nibbling Charlie's feet in the rock pools by the muddy salt marshes.
We beach combed a bit then marsh hopped, covered ourselves in warm mud and swum back ..... till next time x

New Blog Design

Hope you like my new blog design.

I've had my paint charts out again and thought these colours were more in line with my Summer beach theme.

Enjoy the good weather and get into or on the water.

Best wishes Mish x x

Back in Business

After three weeks my hand is feeling less painful and I can start work again.

Some new upholstered furniture items are in Jane's Smart Art Studio.

They will soon be available on my website too.

It's great to be back.......
