Yes, I suppose you could call this the 'Amanda and Lesley Show !'
So... no prizes for guessing where I went today!
But first stop was Newton Abbot station in order to pick up a fellow blogger, Joe!
Big smiles on our faces, off we went, as happy as could be! And we were even more happier when we reached..... Totnes.
Totnes is the sort of place (t'is pretty laid back!) which does not wake up ever so early.
Fat Lemons Cafe was not yet open...hence our joy when we found a hall, half way up the High Street, with a notice outside saying ' Coffee Morning' .
Coffee was 50p! Cake was 30p!
£1.60 for both of us!
And it was flippin' gorgeous;-)
At the top of the hill we made for 'Shabby Chick'.
Amanda and her lovely mum greeted us in their usual, cheery way.
It's always a pleasure to meet up with them...they restore my faith in mankind and I need a dose of that every now and again ! Especially today!
Free to look and savour the flavour....and such reasonable prices when you do want to buy.
I always love it all. I think Joe did too!
We actually visited Amanda's stall three times!! Each time was as lovely as the time before ... my appetite did not wane! Oh no!
I admired this lovely butter dish!
And then it was time to continue on our 'journey'...although a few hundred yards was all that we needed to step!
A dose of 'This 'N That' was on the menu !
I simply adore this lovely shop and Lesley is great, so friendly and so lovely.
A real step back in time.
Gorgeous mags from way back ....I do hope that she doesn't fall in!
Lesley fills the shop with such wonderful goodies!
BTW ...Totnes does have a lot more than this...LOL!
But these ladies just bring me such a huge amount of pleasure and I thank them for that!
After that, it was home for lunch and a natter, as my lovely daughter and son in law turned up unexpectedly, which made the day even more lovely...oh and a little matter of
Mr Snippets and his new iphone... but that's trivial compared to all things vintage, shabby and chic , isn't it?!
A big thank you to Joe for being such great company today!
Finally, many thanks to all the people who commented on my last post!
You are all very kind and it is much appreciated.. very heartening and reassuring!
Have a wonderful weekend! xxx
