What a day… feeling a bit disheartened at the moment, so I think today’s retirement card is quite apt! We’ve done our Monday routine trip to the supermarket, had tea and now got an hour to look at creative Folksy July Jester shops to make me smile.  Today’s theme is places I’d rather be, people I’d rather be seeing, things I’d rather be wearing and songs I’d rather be singing etc…

Strawberry Anarchy – Wellington boot necklace (I’d love to go to a festival, esp. Glastonbury)

Swirlyarts – Dennis the menace gift tags (takes me back to my childhood, if only I’d appreciated how ‘easy’ things were then!)

Oldskoolretro kisch boutique – Upcycled vintage bag (anything vintage makes me smile… if only I could go back in time)

The glass mountain – Sailing boat key fob (wish we could just sail away today)

The whimsical wren – Jenny wren and the acorn (If we had a garden I’d be sat in it listening to the tweeting birds)

Time for bed now, so I can wake up to a new day…
