A busy weekend

I've had a hectic but lovely weekend.  Yesterday was spent shopping, Mr B let me choose a top to buy for my birthday as I had a wardrobe full of nothing to wear! In the afternoon I made earrings to go with said top and re vamped an old clutch bag (see below) before going out for a gorgeous meal with Mr B and my brothers and sisters-in-law. We went to a fabulous place called The Larder on Goosegate, it specialises in seasonal, local produce and the setting is gorgeous, well recommended.

The bag before: A gorgeous shape and colour but really didn't get the fish buckle on the front.  Most of the jewellery I wear is silver coloured so the antique gold bugged me!

 The bag after: This is a feat of engineering! I've had the large silver ring for ages and not known what to do with it, it's the perfect fish buckle replacement!  After a bit of eyelet punching, setting and attaching of chain-my revamped bag was complete...........just in time to use with my new top!
Today has been a little more chilled, bacon sandwich to start the day (thanks Julie!), followed by Mum's roast (thanks Mum!) and Steph's picnic (thanks and Happy Birthday Steph!)

Just off for tea now, chicken, chorizo and tomato pasta (thanks Jeff!) 

I'm a very lucky girl!
