A Gypsy Fair

That’s right; An actual gypsy fair! I literally squealed when we saw the sign for it! It was ridiculously pretty. There were lots of gypsy caravans; all accessorized in different ways (one even had cow horns on the front!) There were pretty looking games and candy floss everywhere! There was even a whole section almost entirely dedicated to bunting! We wandered in and had a little listen to the band before heading home. As we were leaving, one of the gypsies winked at me! Score!

I wore my brand new Jessica Ogden for ASOS playsuit (thanks Barnaby!) It features such pretty bead work around the neck, all to form a pretty bow shape! I really do feel like a doll when I wear it!

If You Go Down To The Woods Today…

By now I’m sure you’re aware that I love going on excursions! Today we visited the south of Christchurch, to a place called McLean’s Island. Along the way we saw the most incredible traction engine! It was so pretty and antique looking – definitely deserving of a photograph! We drove slow behind it and finally reached our destination; McLeans Island. It is a huge park, complete with an enormous bike riding track – so tempting! There were so many red and white spotted mushrooms, and lots of actual fairy rings! I was too frightened to stand in one of course, but had to take a few photographs of the pretty mushrooms!

Green Fingers

We arrived home and I decided to spend the day in the garden. I have always wanted a cute vegetable patch – and my current flat has the perfect area for it! While digging away, I came across the funniest looking root vegetable! Does anyone have any idea what it is? I just couldn’t stop laughing at how enormous it was!
