Round two of feedback from our holiday in Gran Canaria.. this week there’s a sneaky peek at some of my purchases… 

As mentioned, we did very little on our holiday but rest.. sitting on the beach, by the pool, drinking and eating, reading and chatting.. this made up our week but it was just what we needed. I couldn’t resist a little shopping, I was much more restrained compared to our last trip and actually the market was a little repetitive in the goods that it sold, but we picked up a few bits. I wanted to make as many of my buys authentic and things that I wouldn’t get back here in the UK. So take a peek…


I just love the pattern and colour of this scarf… Very me, very 60s.

I couldn’t resist a Gran Canaria tea towel got to be done really and at 1 Euro I had to get one 🙂



My other two buys were from local shops…


I adore the gorgeous colours in this little bowl, if only I could have afforded some of the bigger bowls and the tiles but alas I settled with this little dish. It’s so pretty and the colours just make me think of sunshine and our holiday.


I fell in love with this ring, I have a little obsession with big rings and I stood for about 5 mins in the shop deciding which pattern to get, pulling together my last few Euros of spending money. Totally worth it, I will be wearing this with pride.


I fell in love, again with all the colours of this bracelet and could not leave it behind.. I am a little worried that one day the elastic will snap but hey ho until then again it reminds me of sunshine and makes me smile when I look down at it. 

We stayed in a lovely apartment thanks to some lovely family friends, check out the three apartments they have in Port De Morgan, if this has wetted your appetite for some sun and relaxation.  It is well worth a visit. 

Even though its cold and horrid outside, hopefully this has brought some thoughts of summer to your minds.. 

Happy hunting for all things pretty and vintage..
