...valentines day came early for my husband tonight....
....with this spud of love...
..quite symbolic as we met 28 years ago 
outside 'spud-u-like' in edinburgh..!
..i had some free time this morning...
..and found myself in the 
it was such a treat to snuffle around
with no time pressures...
..even if it was FREEZING!!!
..more hangers miss squirrel????
(it's getting to be quite an obsession you know!
..i have plans for these......)
...i have been resisting these little red shoes for some time now...
..but today i just wasn't strong enough..
..oh and a friend for my policeman..
..a 'little chef'..
(...which takes us rightback to where i started 
with 'spud-u-like'!)


  1. ha! He obviously only had (potato) eyes for you! boom boom! Those red shoes are very lovely indeed!...randomly..I've always regretted not buying a gorgeous vintage pair I saw once in a scrappy vintage shop in Brighton..I'm sure I'll get over it one day! ;) x

  2. I heart potato ... How very lovely..... Little reds are gorgeous, I didn't reply to your email, feel real bad, life is too crazy, hence blog break, will sort out cuppa after decorating.... X speak soon xx

  3. I began my romance with Mr Bea 28 years ago too, we actually met 2 years earlier, our eyes met over a piano! That place looks fab, can't beat a good rummage! :) x

  4. I heart the little baker friend ... are these salt shakers or just a little figurine? Wendy

  5. Wow- spud you like. Thats a blast from the past. Do they still exist?? Went to many in my youth. No such thing in California. Great spud, hope Husband liked it!
