A Visitor and Retail Therapy.

Yesterday I caught up with my blogging friend  Liz from The Village Quilters.  We drove down to the Bay and popped in to a couple of my favourite spots at Cleveland.
Firstly here...
Joy was on duty to help us (lead us astray!) Joy and Liz...
Lots of lovely things to ooh and ahh over.
I suddenly heard 'French' whisperings in my ear.....
these  beautiful French General fatties leapt into my bag!
Joy also suggested I try these french needles for my needleturn...BOHIN. I tried one! Loved it!
See that beautiful Lavender hand cream....I can't visit here..
without bringing some I didn't! Such a gorgeous visiting! After a cuppa I took Liz on a little visit to the old Lighthouse at Cleveland Point and to look at the bay. It wasn't at it's best, choppy and overcast.
Thankfully the tide was in....
but it was blowing a gale....poor Liz nearly got blown off the block! But we still got a little wander in and checked out the views.
We had a lovely day even if it was a tad warm and humid away from the water. Thanks for coming Liz x
I am being very brutal with a lot of my magazines and am half way through a big I must get back!
Namaste and Blessings,
