I ended my last post saying I would be back soon to show some more of our visit to Wisconsin-so true to my word, here I am! I thought, if I am to wait until I get my goodies displayed, you could be waiting a while and I know a certain buddy is going on hols soon, so this is to put her in the notion for all the prim goodies that are out there-as if she is not excited enough-right Christine?
The shop below,'A Simpler Time' is in Ripon-I first saw it on someone's blog and made a note of the address, as a definite place to visit. Wow, but I was not disappointed. Room after room of amazing eye candy, do you want to see?
Well, what do you think? A good find?
Now, on to some purchases!
This next pic, caused a little hassle at the security of the airport-I had it beautifully packed in hubs hand luggage, with the glass out and filled with goodies for safe transportation, but we had to unpack it all at security (which took ages) as I think they must have thought it was a rocket or something!! Anyway, I got it home safely and hubs got it all wired up for here and I am soooo pleased with my new lamp:))
I didn't get the wire basket in Wisconsin, but I thought it displayed my new bobbins and treenware nicely. I just love the little mats I got-can't wait to display them properly.
Just a closer look at the coverlet I got from 'A Simpler Time' I am still waiting (impatiently) on hubs friend making my quilt rack:(
I usually only buy things I can't make myself, but I couldn't refuse this folk art pear makedo-so beautifully stitched and finished off with a little wool strawberry on a rusty pin and just look at the little base.
Ok, that is most of my goodies-(I need to keep some for displays to show you another time, or I will have nothing to blog about!lol) but before I finish, here are a few photo's of my wool stash. I know, it is probably small, compared to many of yours out there, but believe me, it pleases me:))
The bottom left, is wool felt and the top left, are a few of my wool kits, yet to made up. Here is a closer look at this scrummy bundle.
This next pic, shows my flannels and homespuns.
And here is a pic of some of my cotton stash
Thanks for staying with me if you have reached this far. I know it has been long but that leads me to my next piece of news.
Because of the school hols etc I have decided to take a break from blogging for July and August-please do not remove me from your blogroll; I do intend to be back in September, with hopefully some sewing done!
I hope to get the odd fix, by reading your blogs when I can, but until next time, I hope everyone has a great summer and enjoys special family time together.
Blessings, Shazy x
