It doesn't take much to please us

We've escaped early for the weekend and we are strolling round our favourite place....... Grange Over Sands in the Lake District.
The cottage known as the Gatehouse is on the main road through Grange and is so pretty.  

We love nothing better than sitting in the Ornamental gardens with an ice cream. We are simple folk really. It doesn't take much to make us happy.  

A 13 year old VW beetle and a 20 year old caravan do it every time with a few great charity shop finds like this beautifully worked framed embroidery for £3 from Age UK in nearby Milnthorpe and two Royal Wilton dinner plates 50p each.

Tomorrow we are off to the Flookburgh Steam Fair and Sunday Art On The Prom in Grange.  

Have a lovely weekend


  1. Happy Friday Lynn,oh lucky you to be off in the caravan, I've emptied my crafting stuff out of ours now the house renos are complete, so now we can set it up and hopefully get away for some peaceful breaks in the not too distant future. Enjoy your thrift shop rummaging, cheers Robyn

  2. It doesn't take a lot to please us either. I loved my one visit to the Lake District, and I also love red front doors!. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Kate x

  10. Grange Over Sands, I haven't been there in decades. Fab place!
    Love that red door and your pretty plate.
    Who needs fancy cars and swanky hotels when you've got a caravan in the Lakes and a Beetle? xxx

  11. That trellis porch with that red front door is gorgeous. How wonderful to have a caravan in such a beautiful spot. Don't blame you for wagging off school early! Xxx
