Tram ride back to the 40s!

A few weeks ago my beau and i travelled back up north to visit my lovely mum,
whilst there we took a family trip to the tramway museum in Crich for their annual 1940s weekend.
the weather was on our side and the setting could not have been better. The museum is set out like an old fashioned high street with the wonderfully restored trams traveling from one end to the other throughout the day. There were a few stalls, music in the bandstand and a parade of beautiful old cars.
my honey and I on the bridge.
I wore my newly acquired freddies dungeree dolls with a floral blouse.
ive barely taken these overalls off since they they arrived, love them so much!

lovely old bus outside the wonderfully restored (full stocked) 1940s pub!
Could of caught this one back to London!

beautiful cars in the Parade!
The Boy and I took on the play park to maximum success!
There werent many stalls on site but I managed pick up one of the best bargains of the year!
these two pairs of shoes cost the princely sum of £30 for both.
the pair on the right are lovely 1950s evening shoes, they have the prettiest shaped heel but the
pair in the centre are the real stars, 1940s CC stamped snakeskin peep toe platforms! best of all
they fit!!

I'm going to make a conscious effort to update more regularly from now, I have a whole new room
and if you follow me on instagram you'll have seen my other exciting addition already!

thats all for now!

Love Hollie xx

  1. That looks like such a jolly fun time! I just adore trams. It's a shame more cities don't use them still these days.

    Aren't Freddie's overalls the bee's knees? I wear mine more than any other pair of pants in my wardrobe (they're especially good for taking our puppy to the dog park in, because I know they can handle whatever the rambunctious critters there can dish out! :)).
