outfit 2 and thrifty finds

My Granddad had a little caravan it was blue.

I just got back from a wonderful little visit to my grandma’s, she is slowly getting better but i had to spend the day showing her how to use her inhaler (asthma) it was slow progress but i think she is capable now. We spent most of the day going through old photos and talking about my wonderful granddad and about the moment they met each other at the bus stop outside work in the 1940’s. As we were rummaging through all her things she gifted me my great grandfathers suitcase, its the cutest little suitcase its lined with a really vintage patterned fabric i am rather chuffed with it.

I re-dyed my hair this morning it said on the packet Black currant but i am not too sure about it, it is a strange red/purple colour. The dress i am wearing i got in the sale at new look, i love the pattern reminds me of a dress i had as a child.
