Step Back In Time...

At the end of December we visited the beautiful Leigh-On-Sea.
The air was crisp and the winter low light was moody and clear.

The houses are so picturesque and it really feels like you are stepping back in time.

We also popped into the Leigh Museum And Heritage Centre.

I love museums, especially ones that about social history.
There is a recreation of a Nineteenth Century fisherman's cottage to have a look in.

Just look how gorgeous he is!


That bag would be perfect for my paints...

And to top off a lovely afternoon, we finished off with fish and chips by the sea...

Let's Hit The Shops! (Part Two):

I had such a fantastic day out in Sheffield that I've had to split the post in two, and now that we've had a cup of tea and slice of cake, it's time to have another mooch...

Collard Manson is one of my favourite shops, slightly mysterious, full of beautifully curated treasures, and perhaps just a little bit spooky.

That chandelier is sooooo beautiful!

So much temptation!

There's some great street art too...

I think this one's my favourite.

It was such a glorious day that I managed to squeeze in a quick sketching session of the beautiful Cenotaph War Memorial in the square.

Hope you enjoyed our day out chuck.

Let's Hit The Shops!

A little while ago we went vintage shopping in Sheffield, fancy a mooch around the fabulous Mooch?

I love this shop, there are some real bargains to be found, and there are such a wide range of different styles.

Even Middie likes it here! 

And here's the hubby, perusing MORE tweed jackets!

On the way to our next shop down the road I couldn't resist photographing this window display...

If you fancy visiting a shop full of eclectic wonders, then Vulgar is the place for you!

Family selfie time!

 I really love this Mr.Moon...

Fancy a cup of tea now?
Think I'll finish our shopping jaunt in another post...after a slice of cake!
