Sandles and buttons....

Hiya,

Well my shopping trip went well on Monday in York and I found a new shop!!

It's called  Blossom and Walker and was actually two shops brimming with loveliness both inside and out


( I only spotted the stair basket when I got home, now I might just have to go back for that!!)


.

It's one of those shops you can browse in for ages as there's so much to see and quite a lot of it is handmade, I picked some lovely things  for the giveaway (details in the next post) then I wandered round to my fav shop any guesses what  that is??? lol



It was all set out in a seaside theme...



I managed to get everything on the list assisted by a lovely girl called Jade who was so pleasant and helpful, nothing was too much bother for her, including these "must have" sandles for the Summer




stunning!!! I'm happy.


I had a 15 % off voucher from living magazine so didn't feel too guilty about buying this little lot, lol.

I  must tell you about the giveaway I was lucky enough to win  from bustle and sew recently,


these gorgeous dandelion buttons all hand stitched on linen...I love them and shall be stitching them on a cardigan but not just yet as I can't stop looking at them!!

Todays Alexa day and I feel a trip to feed the ducks coming on...

Bye for now,

Lucey xx

York looks a lovely place - am sure my mate Country Girl will be over to see this post - I know she's off there in the summer.

I love the sandals, I was contemplating those last time I was CK but for some silly reason I decided not to get them, I think I was feeling guilty at the already bulging basket I had. Now I wish I had go them!!!

Ooh York and Harrogate are still on my list of places to visit this summer! Those Cath Kidston sandals are too cute I feel a Liverpool Cath Kidston trip coming up this weekend :-)

What fabulous buys. I love York, but haven't been for years and years. I bought the sister buttons to those (the apple tree). They are incredible, aren't they. I adore them, and am so pleased I got a set. I must blog about them soon. That is one highly talented stitcher.

oooo, you have been busy. What lovely buys.
Hope you are well,
