drive away x

idea for holiday #1

hire a really sweet vw camper van
vw camper van hire from o'conners campers

i am so in love with the white tablecloth, cute little vase of flowers
all those tea lights

drive to one of our lovely seaside towns
(ps. great article here on britains 10 best secret beaches)
(pps. guess they may not be so secret now)

must have really cute beach huts

i remember going on holiday to devon when i was a child
buying a new enid blyton secret seven or famous five book
looking forward to icecream floats in lyme regis

happy memories


  1. I so want that van. Not only because there isn't carpet on the walls but because they made it so feminine. LOVE IT!!!!

  2. Sharon,
    I was searching for blogs that would inspire me with photographs and I found yours! Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I'll be checking in for inspiration! I enjoy books also so I'm trying to figure out how to add the library link you have :). Have a great day!

  3. I love VW vans! Would just have to hope the weather was a bit better than today though. Although camping in the rain can be fun too, so typically British!

  4. What a lovely blog you have:-))

    Best day to you from Randi
