Today I'm looking forward to a shower.

Morning.

No not looking forward to a rain shower, a wedding shower!
Not been to one before, so I gather it's a fairly new idea??!!  Have you heard of them or been to one?

My best friend's son is getting married at the end of this month, I'll be attending her future daughter-in-law's wedding shower.  The invite mentioned bringing a small gift for the Hen, by way of something along the lines of pegs, rubber gloves or wooden spoons.  So between me and middle daughter we've come up with the following:

Homemade frilly apron
Washing net bags
Rubber gloves
Oven mitts
Washing up liquid




All gathered in a silver box with a mauve bow - perfect.

Fancy a sweet treat?
Why not try this.......

I'm wearing my Lace pencil skirt from the Florence and Fred sale, See previous post Here they may have a few odd sizes left on line, but nothing in my local store now. Well it was such a bargain!
I've worn with a Matalan silky short sleeve top and my nude sling back shoes.  Happy with my look, do you like?
