A shopper, collector and vintage loving librarian. History and books are a passion, so are clothes, old movies, Snoopy, Gene Kelly and heavy rock. I know, I know not the most obvious of combinations but there you go! I always have about 5 books and about 55 stitching projects on the go at any one time.
Teenage Kicks by The Undertones is my favourite song ever and The Hound of the Baskervilles is my favourite book.

It's Starting to Look a Lot Like Winter/Spring/Winter?
I have a post planned for which I was going to share this picture of my neighbour's glorious holly tree!
The birds haven't started stripping the berries yet, but now the first frosts are here it won't be long before there isn't a one left believe me. Obviously fierce spikes don't bother birds!
The reason for this quick post rather than the planned one, was this other tree I spotted from the train window as we came into Oxford station yesterday. Today I went for a lunchtime walk with my camera to take a closer look.
It is very beautiful but sad as well. This poor tree has been fooled by the ridiculously warm weather we have had lately into thinking it's spring and so has burst into bloom.
Sad thing is the first lot of frost and well.........
