Bank Holiday Thrifting

This weekend, I took a trip with my family down to Carlisle to visit Aunt Flora. We prefer to say Auntie Flora Doll, because it's just better. I managed to squeeze in a few visits to some charity and vintage shops in Carlisle and Windermere. Look at what I found!

Nana Things

In March, Nana Nicolson passed away. One of the hardest things we had to do was sell her house which was the Nicolson family home for over 50 years. We spent hours sorting out her things and remembering all the fun we had in the house.

My sister and I used to spend afternoons dressing up in her clothes and jewellery, pretending we were Zia from 'The Mysterious Cities Of Gold'. I think there were a few times we thought we were pretty convincing Ewoks too (I was Princess Kneesaa and Jennifer was Latara).

We used to love helping Nana cook in the kitchen too. She always had freshly baked scones and cakes ready for any visitors and the prettiest tea sets to serve them with.

Although she's not with us anymore and we don't have the house to visit, it's comforting to have some of our favourite Nana things in our home.
