Now to more interesting things I promised I would show you where we stayed in Tenterden it was the most lovely Bed and Breakfast run by Pippa (who featured in Country Homes and Interiors October issue with her Happy Hampers business) So here is few photos. It is called The Tower House.
Lovely room for breakfast
We also visited the lovely Tunbridge Wells (lovely shops) and then on to Whitstable which is a great seaside place but is very famous for its Oysters (I have to say I just can’t eat oysters I have tried! But they just give me a bit of a tummy ache)
The lovely Pantiles in Tunbridge Wells
A lovely shop which sold brilliant things for your garden and home
The Fishing huts in Whitstable I think they are now holiday homes
I loved this one it had the most lovely views across to the sea
The famous oyster restaurant (I add I didn't go in!!!)
Well back now in the swing of sewing and have had a few bargains this week, I bought this lovely monogramme sheet on ebay it was lovely without any marks on it, I also found these lovely buttons in an antique shop in Hastings and one of the best finds was in the cupboard under the stairs where I found Caroline Zoob faded flowers fabric – I thought I had used it all and you can’t buy it anymore so I was so happy!!
But a really good surprise was on Saturday when we decided to have a walk at a nearby Lake, (never been before although it was only 5 minutes from house) sorry forgot camera so didn’t take any photos, but just by the lake was cottage and outside there was a table selling surplus vegetables, and don’t they look lovely all for under £2 to include 1 dozen free range eggs, what a brilliant find – I will be back. I have tried to grow vegetables but our garden is quite shady and we seem to be plagued by snails and slugs who had a better meal than we did, so I sort of gave up this year.
