Put on a happy face


There's been a lot to be blue about this past week.
The rain on Saturday

But that was a good excuse to use my charity shop find brolly

And it didn't stop us having fun at the Ulvertson Vintage weekend with friends

I nabbed this handmade bag for £2.  I know how much work goes into making these as some of my friends who are in the Embroiderers Guild made them 

Sunday we found lots of sunshine and flowers and a matching brooch which I am wearing with the vintage jumper and skirt from friend Vix of Kinky Melons Retro Boutique

Got my monies worth out of my brooch and teamed it with a crimplene top and secondhand skirt

Tuesday was a funeral and as I never wear black figured my 50's two piece would do the job and my dobbing big diamond clasp fake snake skin bag

By Wednesday it was warm enough for a patchwork cotton dress with a cardi

Then blow me Thursday I'm back in my thick tights and a jacket 

I didn't give in to wearing boots though. I love this outfit as it cost me all of £10  for the jacket, dress and basket

Grey skies are gonna clear up
Put on a happy face
Brush off the clouds and cheer up
Put on a happy face
And spread sunshine all over the place
Just put on a happy face

I'll leave you with that ear worm those of you who are old enough to remember it

Not dressed as lamb - Saturday link up


  1. The rain has been so welcomed by the gardens that I've even smiled about that this week plus it made it a little cooler for all the work I've had to do. Loving the fashions this week Lynn. You know how to combine colours etc so well.

  2. Love the look and those blue sandles

  3. Oh I so love your vintage outfits! Lovely! And you have a way of putting everything together so well.
    The embroidered bag is beautiful!
    And the song at the end had me singing it and now I can't get it out of my head!
    Have a lovely weekend and a good week ahead,

  4. Funny how finds trend in color - that happens to me quite often.
    Love your term for umbrella "brolly."

  5. So much gorgeousness in one post! Your brolly will cheer up a rainy day no end. I love the embroidered bag and the flower brooch, and absolutely covet your 50's two-piece and that amazing jacket you wore on Thursday! xxx

  6. It's a while since I saw any proper rain, but I did buy the cheapest umbrella I could find when I was in UK a couple of weeks ago.
    You obviously had a good time at the vintage fair. I am glad you found some items to make you happy. Keep smiling. Kate x

  7. I remember that jumper, it looks fab! Ace outfit round-up. Love the old bus.
    You've had loads more rain than us (thank goodness!) but I think last weekend's deluge has more than made up for us having a few dry days! xxx
