Nice Places

We visited Wells Cathedral, Wells is a pretty little town with a huge cathedral which is simply breathtaking, theoutside was impressive and the inside even more so, there were lots of embroideries which were exquisite and we sat and waited for the 13th century clock to chime, just above the clock face are jousters on horses and they gallop around as the clock chimes and there is the most beautiful statue of christ made from a piece of Yew wood underneath the clock it just glowed with warmth.

Whilst we were on holiday we nipped over the border into Devon to Honiton I had always wanted to go there as this was a lace making town, they don't make lace anymore but I saw some lovely pieces, it was a bit pricey but beautiful. The main street has quite a few antique shops the best one I found was called Fountain Antiques and had some great stuff I bought some lovely glass buttons and beads and there was a lot of vintage material which I loved and if you do crazy patchwork it has lots of stuff for embellishing. I love having our caravan it takes us to such brilliant places, I have seen so muchof my country since we started to use the caravan and everytime we go somewhere I feel so lucky to live in such a beautiful place.

A lovely Holiday.

Hello People, we had a lovely holiday in Somerset and we were very lucky with weather, it was sunny and dry and got warmer as the week went on. The Shepton Mallet Antiques Fair was great with lots of vintage stuff the pictures you see are of Lizzie of The Washerwoman blog it was lovely to meet her and she had some special vintage items on her stall, Lizzie also very kindly sent complimentary tickets for Tony and I for the fair. I bought a lovely french dresser top which I am going to resore a bit, I will show you a before and after photo, I also got some pretty vintage fabric and a little silver bird pincushion, Tony bought me a Shelley Trio of cup saucer and plate called summer glory it's a chintzy one, I had lots of birthday pressy's and enjoyed my day, I am a very lucky lady I have the best husband and Kids and I feel very loved. I will post more photo's tomorrow, I am now going to try and catch up on all the blog news.
