On Wednesday I spent the day with my friend Shirly in Easingwold where all the houses are gorgeous and in the summer they "open" their gardens
this one is painted in lovely shades of green and it sits right on the village green,
this one is called "Yew Tree House"
there's also some lovely shops there
Heart's ia a gift shop where I got a large "twist" of rosebuds to go in a bowl and to make a heart out of, they smell wonderful, I also got some plant markers and a jam jar that says "marvellous marmalade" on the side I thought it would look nice with some flowers in it.
The sweetie shop is called "sugar mouse" my mouth was watering as we had our noses pressed against the window but we were very good and didn't step inside!!
The garden shop was full of lovely things,
If only I had an allotment to go to.....
and then it was time for lunch so off we went to "Tee Hee" cafe
we were shown to our table and bench that had big cushions on it and on the table there were syrup tins to hold the sugar, look at those lovely scales,
above the table was a "mobile" hanging from the ceiling, it was made from a silver tea pot
and it had forks and spoons hanging from it
hmmmm, I'll have to get Mr Lucey to make me one of those, I wonder how you bend the prongs into shape??
Back at Shirly's there were lots of sheep and lambs in the field and all the ducks were quacking and even the peacocks come over to see us, must be lovely to live in the country especially at this time of the year.
Nearly forgot to show you the dolls houses, these were actually wardrobes
Alexa would love this pink one
and I'll have the grey one please,
anyone got £3000 to lend me!!!
