Hampton Court hot hot hot !

We had a couple of hours drive and by default found ourselves at the park and ride venue, the bus sadly doesen't drop you off at Hampton Court but 3/4 mile away (last year we parked next door) so we decided to take the ferry it was well worth it such a cool breeze.

This is the Captain :)

We were only on a short time Im glad it wasen't diy

One of the themes was a Midsummer Nights Dream. The costumes were stunning.

The other theme of the show was to my delight Vintage inspired, I love this shed, at the moment we are renovating our garden shed which was the origanal house in the 20's, I'm hoping one day it will look as good as this. I will post some pics of ours soon.

The fashion show was also 40's 50's 60's inspired

This is a lovely wedding table everything just went so well together.

diy cake stand it look s like this lady can't make her mind up well they did want £28
These brollies were lovely and yes they were also £28

Lots of wonderful flowers the perfune from the roses was mmmmm divine.

          A liitle bit of nostalgia


Some shabby chic

lot of petals make up this glove

Giant vegetables and funny faced sunflowers                                                              

and finally I treated myself to a metel thingy with bells

We had such a good day, the weather was so hot and the ground very dusty, we both looked like we had been dragged through a hedge backwards. I couldn't believe how dirty my feet were when we got back home.We ended up doing a bit of a detour home, for some reason we always end up on a different road, but as all great explorers we managed to get back ok. My battery ran out half way through the day so there should have been more pics, my lovely hubby bought me a camera as a suprise, but i didn't charge it up enough.

So there you are another year over, I hope you enjoyed the pics, oh and I did buy a few plants, pity you couldn't see us trying to get on the ferry with them :) Hope you all had a lovely weekend, I'm of to Colchester Castle tomorrow with my class (yes more pics) bye for now

We were there too and yes it was very hot , great excuse for a couple of glasses of Pimms though ! I couldn't believe how dirty my feet were too. I am really sorry we somehow missed the vintage fashion show.

Glad to hear you have had a lovely time at Hampton Court. We live just down the road from HC and it has been soooooo hot!!!
I must admit I haven't ventured to the flower show this year due to being so busy with one thing and another but I do think I missed a fabulous show.
Loving all of the vintage china - it is right up my street!!!
