On The Sands

In celebration of the gloriously sunny weather we are enjoying here in middle England, I offer you a little collection of pretty watercolour images scanned from On The Sands, a Green Beacon 1957 early reader (they always have the best images don't they?) that once belonged to my very own Mum. Oh for the bliss that would be sitting under an elegant parasol while my little scamp frolicked in the sea... Have a truly gorgeous weekend Housekeepers.

It's gorgeous way down here in the south too. Isn't it just great? ...Dinner in the garden tonight, I think.

Charming illustrations - harkening back to what we see as gentler times.

I somehow missed this post before... these are absolutely gorgeous...

Of course these beach huts cost a small fortune these days plus there's a longer waiting list than for a Birkin bag.

Puttery Post!
