A hen, jars, cake and chips


The weekend started with a trip to our quirky local garden centre
for a bit of colour for our bedraggled plot.
Next up was a drive over the moors to one of my favourite spots,
 Todmorden in West Yorkshire.
Blog followers will know that I am a bit obsessed with the place, 
its such a step back in time.
I really went to help a friend find a dress in the charity shops for a wedding 
she is going to but she ended up buying three coats instead.
I found this mirror for another friend who is 
having a Wall Of Mirrors on her staircase.
In the same shop, Picture House Antiques, 
this jar had to come home with me 
for fab trader friend Vix of Kinky Melon's Retro Boutique.
Refreshment time of coffee and cake was had in The Bear Cafe & Deli Store next door, where you can buy lots of great vegetarian and organic food.
Thyme herb jar - The Bear £3
Glycerine bottle - Picture House Antiques 75p
The little Christmas tin came from the Greyhound Rescue Charity Shop
In the market hall I picked up some bits of haberdashery.
Thats my Ruth Zanoni brooch, I can't help showing it off, I love it.
Then it had to be done, a new runner for the hallway.
Also Todmorden inside market.
Before the trip home we needed a bit of sustenance in the form of a bag of chips sat outside on a bench in the sunshine.
So that was Saturday.
Sunday its over to Stockport Vintage Village and looking forward to seeing our trader friends, some great music and the scooter event

  6. I'm loving the Vix jar, it's next to the bath and filled with my Himalayan Bath Salts!!!
    Todmorton looks amazing and I wouldn't mind a rummage around the garden centre. Sure beats B&Q! xxxx
