I have A BUTTON BOX!
I remember spending hours playing with a box of buttons at my Grandma's house when I was young, and MY Mum now has that box of buttons, which I presume she has added to over the years. But to realise that I have a button box all of my own, made me feel slightly strange. And OLD!
Pretty though, aren't they?

This is Munnings Tearoom in Lavenham named after the artist Alfred Munnings, where we had a fantastic lunch. Sandwiches, scones and CAKE! Thankfully it was coffee cake and not MORE chocolate cake! We had a HUGE pot of tea, which Pickle thought brilliant as we used a tea cosy. She had no idea what a tea cosy was, which I found a bit sad. Her comment made me realise I always make tea in a mug, so I shall be asking Picklesgrandma to knit us a tea cosy.
Now what was the highlight of Pickle's rip to Lavenham?
A) The cakes and juice in the tea shop?
B) Running down a steep hill?
C) Visiting the church and more importantly GRAVEYARD to see lots of dead people?
I worry about that girl sometimes.

Pickle was a much longed for second child, who we are so honoured to have in our family. She is a like a whirlwind and we wouldn't have her any other way.
Happy Birthday Pickle!

Jo Beaufoix is hosting Fun Monday this week and I feel I may have inadvertently answered her question yesterday, without meaning too.
She wants to know 'Who was your first celebrity crush?'. Although I didn't realise it at the time, I now fear it was Richard O Sullivan, AS DICK TURPIN I may add, not as in Robin's nest. That is very important to know as it makes it slightly less embarrassing.
I had a picture of him on my bedroom door, pulled from the TV Times! I was aged between 7 and 9, so I was not to blame.
I have progressed somewhat since then to

Today it arrived, all the way from Atlanta in the USA!
What is it? Well it is described as a Ballerina Barrette Holder. The ballerina bit I got straight away but what is a barrette when it's at home? Well wiki says
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Barrettes are worn according to size, with small ones at the front and large ones in the back. They are used to keep hair out of the eyes but can also be just ornamental.
So now you know too.
Pickle loves the ballerina barrette holder loads, mainly because it is pink! So a massive thank you to Nissa at Luscious Little Treasures, you have made one little Pickle very happy!
