Lu and my holiday to Corfu was wonderful, the beach, the food and just the rest, doing nothing but drinking in the blue sea, a bit of people watching and quaffing the odd 3 for 2 cocktails! Arillas, our resort was very small, so we decided that we ought to tear ourselves away from the beach for just a little while for an evening trip in Corfu Town and a day trip to Kassiopi. They did disappoint.
Thank goodness we chose to visit Corfu Town in the evening, it was still pretty hot, but Lu and I are women who were born to mooch, so by taking on plenty of liquid refreshment we did our best not to wilt in the heat
The old town was stunning ……..
……. so many romantic alleys, leading to mysterious places.
And, in one of my moments of pondering, I couldn’t help wonder why other peoples washing, hung out of windows and on balconies looks so quaint, where back home, it just looks, well …… shonky!
……. so my money was safe with this little festive gathering, although I am always on the look out for vintage or “different” Christmas bits and pieces, but it made me smile!
…….. however, perhaps the ensemble below was a little over the top ……
…….. I don’t know why, but Joan Collins springs to mind!!!There were so many objects of desire …………
…… and inspiration, like this display of hand-painted magnets, which gave me an idea, using children’s wooden dominoes …… if I have the confidence to have a go at drawing and painting.
