Away with Maud...










A visit to Dorset... Maud was a star sadly my body not so and then there was a stone in the spinach ouch... so I had to cut the holiday short coming back home for two chipped tooth fillings... I couldn't eat without getting an electric shock...

I did make it to a bootsale and saw two stunning gardens, one was next door to our cottage but the rest of the holiday was spent in bed with.... can you guess... yes... migraines...  my neck was catching a nerve again....

The bootsale outing, the first for me this year, was very successful... thank you Elaine... huge so I didn't make it to every stall but I came away with...




Two splendid blankets the blue one is a perfect fit for covering Maud's bed and the other needs a bit of tlc...





I picked up a few other things...  and met some lovely locals too.

The linens could do with a soak but I seem to have run out of ecover bleach powder...







Some more embroidery hoops and a couple of pretty embroidery pieces












And a thin long hanging you may have spied in Maud?




Oh yes and a rather useful National Trust walking stick... all in all not bad for just under £10 and I was back in the holiday cottage before 9 o'clock for breakfast...


Next time a post about the trip around Cranbourne Manor Garden now if you haven't been there you are in for a real treat..


Here's the entrance to the gardens just to wet your appetites... and yes they are chives!!





Thanks for popping by till next time smiles Cass x

  2. Glad you were out and about, it looked lovely, shame about the teeth! I did laugh when reading as I thought it said that the lovely locals could do with a soak but you'd run out of bleach, had to re read that! x
