I'm thinking Christmas....

Roger the lodgers girlfriend lives in Yarm and when he asked me for a lift to her house I jumped at the  chance as I  neeed cheering up.

I've been off work as I scratched my eyeball with a blunt eye liner pencil, ouch! and had to go to the hospital, and then I caught a bug and was violently sick so a little retail therapy was just what I needed.

First stop was Strickland and Holt where they sell their own salad dressing,

and the ingredients contain, amongst other

In the charity shop I bought two glass candlesticks

and in the florist I spied a very natural looking garland of ivy, and some wonderful berry red candles I'm thinking Christmas here with candles in the candlesticks and the ivy twined around them, there's only 103 days till christmas!!

I also bought this tiny butter dish, it just holds enough butter  for a freshly baked scone.....

and how could I resist this lovely black and white cow.

I realy did need these lovely union jack coasters for the kitchen table,

 and now I'm off to make a nice cup of tea and a read of a magazine, (which I also needed!!!)

Bye for now,

Love Lucey xxx
