Mushroom cakes and shiny trifle balls

It would of been my Nanna's 93rd birthday on Friday .. she died 3 years ago just a couple of weeks before the big 9-0!

When she was alive we used to have a b'day party for her every year - and she still used to do all the baking - she would make mushroom cakes and lemon curd tarts .. and always a trifle with shiny edible silver balls on top - so this post is dedicated to her!!

I wore this outfit to go run some errands, and go shopping may of picked up some bargains ;)

I went to the churchyard after that to visit my Nanna's plaque and take a pot of Gerberas!

What I wore:
Top: H+M
Skirt: Dorothy Perkins.
Tights: Primark.
Scarf: Primark.
Shoes: Level Nine.
Bangles: Gifted.

Below is a sneak peak of some of the items bought yesterday - although I have to go back with one as it still has the security tag on - goodness only knows how I didn't set the alarms off! I did buy it I swear ;P

Today is a nice sunny day - but still quite windy and cold here in the UK, and apparently snow is forecast for Tuesday and Weds :S Thought we had seen the last of the that!

We decided as it was a nice day to go out for a wander and went to Dobby's World - a garden centre a few miles away, was nice to have a wander round as they have all craft shops and clothes (no non came back - but i saw a gorgeous maxi dress :D) Also had dinner sat in the conservatory was soooo warm sat in the sun!! :D

Halterneck top: Select.
Cardie: Florence and Fred@ Tesco.
Jeans: Cherokee @ Tesco.
Shoes: M+S

Gra looks very dashing :)

Sounds like Nanna was surrounded by a wonderful loving family. Nice to remember our loved ones, and she left good memories behind with you.

I love your pattern with pattern skirt outfit. Such pretty tiny flowers on your scarf. Do you have any spring flowers showing up yet?

Looks like you're enjoying your weekend :) hugs
