Sunday Best...

Happy Sunday. I hope you have had a lovely weekend? Here's a few of my favourite links and things from this week... 

// I need one of these Sriracha keyrings in my life.

// My brother has been offering free haircuts for the homeless in his spare time. Have a look at #DoSomethingForNothing to follow this amazing project.

// Have you watched the music video for David Bowie's new track Blackstar
yet?

// This would make a great Christmas present for a Marmite lover.

// I need some new boots for winter and I'm quite taken with these from Armistice.

// If Harry Potter characters looked like they did in the books.

// Missy Elliot is back!

Lacock Village & Abby, Wiltshire : A Few Snapshots

The village of Lacock, owned by the National Trust, is the epitome of English quaintness, a fact which means it's served as the ideal filming location for many films and tv shows. You may well have spied the village and Lacock Abbey in the likes of Wolf Hall, Downton Abbey and Harry Potter - I was most excited by the later obviously!

We visited recently with the in-laws and had a lovely walk around the village and abbey and stopped for a delicious hearty lunch at The George Inn. I really recommend it for a nice day trip. The village is so pretty - although to really feel transported back in time I would love to see it without all the parked cars.

Here's a few snapshots of our day...


1 // This dog had David Bowie eyes... someone had name it Lily but I think it knows its name is really The Thin White Duke.
2 // Lacock has some dreamy doorways
3 // The Tithe Barn
4 // These meringues were amazing
5// ...truly amazing
6 // It can't be just me who wants to steal items from National Trust properties for my own home - especially kitchen wear.
7 //  The halls of Hogwarts!
8// Latticed window - In 1835 William Henry Fox Talbot captured this window in the very first photographic negative. Here it is captured my iPad 180 years later.
9 // We found these pumpkins for sale on the drive home and it pretty much made my month!
