My favourite shop on the Island at the moment is Crocus, a veritable Aladdin's cave of interior goodies, crafting supplies, and gifts. They have a treasure trove back room stocked full of vintage goodies, and I recently found this Jaeger dress which is a gorgeous woollen dream. It was a little bit too conservative when I found it, with a mid-calf hemline, but nothing an overlocker and a blind stitch couldn't fix.

This is my favourite little piece of street art in town - I'm sorely tempted to attempt to recreate it on the garden shed when it gets a bit drier.
A little stop off at Chocolate Apothecary was the perfect end to the afternoon. Violet and rose petits fours are fast becoming my favourite indulgent treat.
I was a little apprehensive about returning to the Isle of Wight, but I'm finding it so wonderful being back home. There is so much exploring to be done, all of which I intend to share with you my lovelies.
Have a wonderful weekend,
