What a Scorcher!


Saturday I jumped in the car and headed to my brother and SIL's for the night
After lunch including some delicious scones we headed the the local Craft Centre which is filled with some fantastic shops



My brother (!) insisted I had to come home with some of the handmade soap from a gorgeous shop which has sadly closed since I first posted




I decided on the lime soap made with a loofar - perfect for using in the new shower I've just had installed 


We started chatting to the owner about blogging (hello if you tracked me down!) and she told us about a shop down the road selling vintage and handmade goodies that sounded like the sort of thing we would like - and she was right!

Th shop was a delight and it was hard to decide what would be coming home with me (sorry I was so busy oohing and ahhing over everything I forgot photos!). I finally decided on these two pictures


Aren't they gorgeous! I couldn't stop talking about them or the shop all evening

After such a successful day we came home to sit in the garden watching this little guy running around


I hope you all enjoyed the lovely weather this weekend

  13. I love the new pictures! Totally gorgeous.

    Thanks for the comment :o) well you have made me thank my lucky stars. At least I can gripe about the heat while hiding in the living room, which always stays lovely and cold all summer (the only room that does), and I don't have to go on the undergrounds in that there London Tahn. I always sweat like made on them anyway, and that's usually in cooler months. You absolutely have all my sympathy.

    If you are ever in my neck of the woods, check out Jimmy's Farm. A favourite haunt of mine.Love all the foodie goodies (though I must warn, some stuff is a bit on the dear side), and there is a little shop tucked away by the kitchen garden, it sells scrummy soaps and things, though you can buy them online too. http://www.littlecotesoap.co.uk/index.asp The pink champagne stuff is my fave.

    You are cordially invited to the next picnic! ;o) xx
