We're back from our sojourn up North. Here are some heavily edited highlights.
There was the most amazing button shop in Harrogate, take a look. Predictably we spent rather more than we should, I'm going to make the owl ones into a necklace.
We also went here as it's right round the corner from where our friends live. I got a lovely little sewing box full of vintage trims and ribbons.
Giddying excitement abounded when I got my hands on the latest Lula!
Between some downright teenage behaviour, we somehow managed to hit quite a few vintage shops in Leeds, some charity shops in Harrogate (where I found a pair of Loake Brogues for Paul) AND a carboot sale in Otley. I found this eccentric piece of studio pottery that I love, but everyone was both repelled and aghast when I actually bought it. The sillies.
On a more universally accepted note, I also found this little wooden leaf brooch.
Thank you friends and thank you Yorkshire for giving up your best.
