Guess the place....

Afternoon girls,

First of all a very happy birthday to our lovely daughter Rachel who's 32 today xxx



 Now do you fancy a little quiz  then read on!!

I had a wander around some lovely shops on monday, anyone guess where I was??


some nice old fashioned pharmacy bottles


lots of flat irons, very hard work I imagine for some unfortunate girl




they don't make them like that anymore, thank goodness!!



just "the drink" for a hot sunny day



anyone for tea and a scone?


It was a pleasure trying on clothes in this changing room with it's gorgeous wallpaper and yes the skirt did come home with me!!



freshly squeezed lemonade (got any ideas yet?)


wonderful edible treats from the best cake shop ever,

and finally,


a trip on a river boat.

Just leave a comment if you know where I went and I shall pop a little something (don't know what yet!) in the post for one of you.

Bye for now

Lucey xx

If so - no CK visit???

Jelly Jam said...

That'll be yummy York then! Lovely looking skirt by the way.

wendy said...

Looks like York to me! I love it there-there are just so many lovely shops and tea rooms!

Michelle said...

Got to be York, my sister lives there :) x

Kerry said...

I had no idea until I read the comments which is shameful because I am a born and bred Yorkshire lass. Love the skirt.

I cheated! I expanded the photos and searched where Stonedale gifts & Antiques are - yep, YORK!
I've never visited there yet, but I'll keep asking until OH buckles LOL!

The Vintage Gardener said...

I have to agree with everyone else - York.

When I saw the medicine bottles I thought it was Beamish but with the river photo I think its York xx

jordiegirl said...

Just like Ali I thought of Beamish first but then I saw the river photo and guessed York too.

with my Miss Marple hat on I googled 'Me and Mrs Fisher' teashop and found Lord Mayor's Walk, York .... never been there but it looks like a lovely place. Your daughter looks like you, Happy Birthday to her.

That foxed me I am ashamed to say as I am indeed Yorkshire born and bred and have visited more times than I remember - none of the places looked familiar - guess where I will be going next time in York.

As a Yorkshire lass, I know that has to be York! I used to work in Droopy and Browns when I was younger, anyone remember that amazing dress shop down Stonegate? I worked there for 4 years.....
LOVELY post and a happy birthday to your daughter too!

Definitely York, I remember Droopy and Browns. There was a divine Edwardian style white full length skirt suit in their window with an enormous hat and I really wanted to buy it to get married in years ago- still wish I had !!

at first I thought is was Northallerton (the cakes reminded me of Bettys, then again there's one in York isn't there...d'oh sooo blonde sometimes!) when I saw the river pic and it had to be York.

Thanks for the lovely comments yo left me recently, I have been in the process of 'moving' so not been in blogworld much.

Would that be the river 'Ouse' in York? I had a very chilly sail down that a few years ago on an open topped boat!

That must be York and I know that tearoom 'Me & Mrs. Fisher' as I am one of the owners! Such a compliment to be featured on your lovely blog. Introduce yourself to us next time to pop to York.
