My husband often jokes that when the girls grow up they will wonder why there's no family photos of their mum! So I wasn't exactly a natural in front of the camera as you can imagine. Luckily the photographers were very pleasant about it all and we ended up having quite a nice day enjoying the sun down at the beach hut. Here are some of my favourite things I took down there:
Also this week my new book arrived. I pre ordered this back in February so I was ultra pleased to see it!
It has some amazing photos of the most fantastic dresses from the 40s and 50s. It is by Christine Boydell who has been involved in organizing this summers exhibition at the Victoria and Albert magazine. I think if Horrockses were still making dresses with their beautiful printed cotton fabrics they would still be as popular today as they were in the 50s. Actually the Victoria and Albert have designed a replica based on an original pattern and fabric which is for sale in their online shop. It is very similar to this dress below.
Thanks for all your comments. Nice to meet some new bloggers and fellow market friends!
