Welcome to 2011!

Maybe you partied last night... or had a quiet time at home?

Ours was the ALWAYS!


Now there's a word!

Earlier in the day on NYE...

'What would you like to do today?'


I ALWAYS say!! ) or nearly ALWAYS!

And, of course, ALWAYS making the usual beeline for the vintage bits !

ALWAYS a pleasure to chat to the owner!

ALWAYS something new upon which to feast one's eyes.

ALWAYS so many pretty things.

ALWAYS the same hustle and bustle going on outside!

ALWAYS a grand collection of books through which to rummage.

ALWAYS plenty of ideas for gifts!

And ALWAYS something outside at which to oooh and ahhh !

ALWAYS making our way to the market!

ALWAYS a cheery hello from the stall holder.

Even though it was a cold and dull day...

her smile shone through! As ALWAYS!

And ALWAYS ending up at The Seven Stars, for lunch!!

Wouldn't you want to do that ALWAYS? ;-)

Meanwhile I wish you all

A Very Happy and Peaceful New Year !

;-) xxx

Happy New Year. Can you tell me which shop had the yellow bowls please?
My grandmother had some almost identical when I was growing up and used to put the most delicious rice puddings and apple pies in them. She used to say eat it all up until you can see the flowers.x

We too had a very quiet new year, as I am full of cold I opted for an early night and woke up to a new year and new day and feeling a new person!
Love all those nice shops you visited.
