summer isn't the same without ice cream

i was one of the luckiest kids of the seventies, my dad owned an ice cream van, it was amazing! we had a whole room dedicated to the storage of sweets in our house, and once a week when my dad headed off to go round the local neighbourhood i would set of after him with 10p in hand, i could of course just have bought my panda pop before he left but apparently i would rather run after the ice cream van and be like all the other kids. it was an exciting time in my life as you can imagine. so in honour of pinkie our ice cream van i have gathered together some stuff that reminds me of those happy happy days

"pinkie" our beloved ice cream van, i really wish my dad still had him, he's so retro!

1. ceramic ice cream cones >>> passionately curious
2. Plastic Ice Cream Bowls >>> hearts and stars
3. Waxed Ice Cream Cups >>> silver crow
4. ice cream coaster >>> robot candy
5. Vintage Ice Cream Scoopers >>> story book charms
6. Ice Cream Lollies tea towel >>> Mr.PS

and as i said..............summer isnt the same without ice cream

cheery pie

so with debbie working most nights and our new thrifty, do not throw any food away attitude, i decided to make some cherry pies with all the cherries we bought earlier in the week. iv never made any pies before so it was a bit of a challenge, they turned out pretty good, looked super cute and went really well with ice cream. i've become quite the housewife these days, lol
