Here's a little post about day three of my holiday (which was a week ago now... sniff!)
I spent last Wednesday in style with my vintage friend Ruth. I've not lived in London long, and because of work have found it hard to meet folk... especially vintage fans. I met Ruth by sheer fluke... through selling her a frock on Ebay, it turned out we live down the road from one another so met for tea!
It was her birthday so we had a wonderful afternoon tea, with her home made yummy marmalade and currant cake, baked to a '30s recipe, ginger biscuits, salmon and cucumber sandwiches. Ruth wore a smashing 1930s blue frock...

|What a collar!|

She is the most glamorous mother of three I've ever met, and her frock collection would make you drool, I stood in awe when she showed me her wardrobes full of amazing things, this was my favourite...
|Alas, it wouldn't fit in my bag! That wardrobe is FULL of amazing frocks|
When her kids came back from school we had a marvellous time playing musical statues to vintage jazz (seeing children dancing to Bix Beiderbecke and enjoying it is a rarity!)
Last Wednesday was by far my best day off, I had a super time... thank you Ruth, and Happy Birthday again for last week you gorgeous lady!
