Fashion show, buys and memories

Last night i went to our House of colour fashion show at the lady who did my colours home. She has a fabulous big house and a huge barn where she holds free events for her clients. We were greeted by men in tux's with trays of champagne. We watched the show and then had a chance to buy bits. Here is what i got: All bargains i might add. The necklaces were £5 each and the bag and scarves £10 each. I had seen this bag in a shop for£35 so i am a happy girl.
If you haven't had your colours done yet then why not?? i really recommend it. If you live in Essex or Hertfordshire go and see Mandy, she is so lovely and how wonderful to go to events, pretty much monthly, at her barn.
The daffs i got from church on mothers day are still doing well.

There is a lovely shop in Rayleigh called Daisy Lanes. I bought these hearts for £1 each. I want to hang them in the hall once i have got new white doors to replace the horrible ones below.
I also got these lovely magnetic butterflies. I've actually stuck them on with bluetac as i wanted them to brighten up the playroom/conservatory wall.
Lovey pictures:

My dear Grandads condition has worsened. We are going to see him tomorrow. I think i am taking this the hardest as i have realised that he is my last grandparent alive.
My mind has gone blank, not sure what else to say............

I love old photos, Jess and I quite often get mine out to have a look through and what a treat to have Eva Cassidy singing to me!
Have a good weekend

Firstly, thinking of you and your granddad. Just closed my eyes and said a little prayer...

If I didn't live so far away I'd love to go to one of Mandy's things, and to have my colours done. There must be someone around here that does it - I must investigate!

Lots of love

I really enjoyed looking at the pictures, your Nan was gorgeous! So sweet of you too.

I think the same person who chose your hall doors chose our fitted wardrobes ones... I must get around to painting them soon ;)

I've never had my colours done but I know yellow doesn't suit me and I hate orange. I hope your Grandad's condition improves.

Hello, I thought I'd drop by and say hello, I am quite new to the blogging world, but have been following your blog for a few weeks now, and I love reading it. Lisaxxx

Hi Lissy,

I hope that things will fair out for your granddad. I'm so glad I've come across your blog - my mother used to call me Lissy-Lou all the time, I'm glad to see that someone else shares that special name!
