Summer Images Retro Style

The joys of being married to Mr D. Spent 3 and a half hours at A & E last night waiting for them to scrape a piece of metal out of his eye. It was a teeny bit, but would not come out.  The nice lady doctor did it though, after pitting stingy stuff in and putting his head in a ‘vice’. A & E on a Friday night. Oh the joy. I’m tired today, but the sun is shining and I have to go and open the shop, so to cheer us up I thought I would post our some lovely images of summer.

What images sums up Summer for you?





I was definitely born in the wrong era

And I think I may treat myself to a soda float after work



  1. beautiful retro pictures : )

  2. Oh, I love these images.
    Let's live in retro, just for one day.

  3. Gross! I'm beyond fussy when it comes to having things in your eye. One day I fainted while ... ah, I don't wanna think about it. Yuck! Glad your husband is okay now.

    Ah,and thanks for sharing these pictures. They are so lovely. How I wish to live one summer in this era - oh, the joy!

    Happy weekend. XOXO.

  4. What great photos! I definitely feel like I was born in the wrong era, too! And you should definitely treat yourself to a float after deserve it! I hope Mr. D. is feeling better today!

  5. sooo summery and cool - i love them :)

  6. So glad Mr. D's eye is alright now and sans metal! I'm sure he's so glad to have had you there when they put stingy stuff in his eye and his head in a vice! Sounds so unpleasant :(

    If I could go back to any era, I would go back to the 50's. Love that style! Love these pretty photos!

    Happy Summer to you!
