This week was a good week vintage haul wise found a fab chair in a local junk shop, left the dodgy cushions behind, it is just waiting for a bright pink paint job, and a rummage through the fabric stash to make some new covers.

Spotted this bureau in a charity shop in Bury mused how good it would look with a bit of TLC left it at that and thought about all night, so a mad dash back next day to buy, will post photos when done up.

This is it in situ waiting for it's make over,

this week other bits were some nice china and a bowl to match a vase acquired a while back

And this book oh to live by the sea !


Last Sunday we enjoyed a walk around Turton Tower and Jumbles country Park a landmark small manor house not far from us in Bolton



1 packet of ready made puff pastry [ life is to short ]
1 onion chopped
1 handful of cooked chopped celery
1 handful of cooked lentils [any kind ]
1 large handful of cooked carrots chopped fine
1 large handful of cooked courgettes chopped fine
1 cup of stock or marmite mixed with a little water
vegetable oil and herbs to taste I use a mediterranean mix

Heat oil in pan and add onion and stock until soft
add vegetables, lentils and herbs and garlic cook for about 15 mins
Let the mixture cool
divide pasty into three strips and place mixture in centre and roll up or make pasties
brush with soya milk and make a slit to let air evaporate and cook for approx. 30 mins at 180 degrees


Nice window Fred Perry off King Street
