...why, oh why would you ever think that this a great idea at 10am on a Sunday morning I will never know! Her screams where enough to put off most adrenalin junkies.
The sparklingly, 1 million pounds worth, new Hove bandstand!! I have lived near and around Brighton for rather a long time. I have always loved the bandstand but I have never set foot on her... she has been deemed to dangerous for as long as I can remember. The walk way had never been seen by my 28 year old eyes....
But she is now pristine..... sparkling in the sunlight and framing the blue sea so well.
I got to walk along her walk way and look out over the sea and the white horses....thankful for a new aspect of the seafront I have never seen before, and thankful that my favourite part of the seafront, although not 'Brighton' Aqua, was under my feet.

I made him a 'Be Happy' cake topper...well, cookie topper....but the wind made it more difficult to photograph!

There is a lovely shop in The Old Needlemakers called 'The Patchwork Dog'. It sells patch work material, buttons, ribbons and plenty more lovely things.
Today is their birthday.... I popped in, had a chat, then left with this gorgeous lavender cup cake.

As the town clock chimed mid-day, they took their places...a lump of pride swelled in my throat.
Lest we forget....
Then coming home over the Downs, this was what awaited me......
The golden corn.... and this wonderful big sky
Enjoy your weekend. x

I'm not a very religious person, but I loved this. Good for them to come up with an original idea, that gets people taking.
Now I know to most people this won't make you smile, but to me, who seems to spend my life wiring precious bits and bobs, it is a good mornings work! It gave me time to think, and a much needed rest from all the hassles going on at the moment.
These buttons are so gorgeous, big glass sparklers... a rare find. It always amazes me that I can still find buttons that I haven't seen before... people sure did love a different button back in the day... do any of your new items have such glorious buttons?
This was our Sunday... sat with a intoxicating smell of these roses...divine...I smiled a lot...memories of a childhood swimming pool were floating through my mind...the heat.. the fun...and the roses that surrounded it.
They were as big as dinner plates, I wanted to take them all home and fill my flat with the scent and memories, but that would be unfair for the next happy visitor to the heavenly scented rose spot.
I also wanted to say a big THANK YOU to my lovely blogger friends, who's kind words, comments, and emails have made me smile. They really have cheered a little Magpie up!
