Bluebell and myself went to visit an old friend on Sunday morning , Barbara has a shop at an antique centre . She sells beautiful lace and linen and cotton bed stuff also tablecloths . We have both been seduced many times by her wares and arrived back home with empty purses . This visit was no exception . I purchased lavender bags and bluebell bought lavender bags and a lovely bed cover to give as Christmas presents .
The last photo is of the lavender bags . She cuts up antique and embroidered tea cloths to make the bags . They smell wonderful plus whoever receives one as a gift are getting a one off , no two are alike .
barb is the one in the grey sweater, I'm the one in the middle with no arms!! but thinking about it the other two only have one arm each .
Another photo much the same but Barb wanted to show the copper , that is her husbands input to the shop . He used to sell antique furniture and lovely old tea sets but ill health has severely curtailed his business .
Also in the building is this wonderful wool shop . I'm a woolly collector , much healthier than chocolate .
I have been after Christmas cacti for several weeks . Garden centres said ,sorry ,not this year . One last try and these were found but the price nearly knocked me off my feet ,but if you want you have to pay .
These are the lavender bags that Barb makes from her antique and embroidered tea cloths .
