And what did I buy in Newcastle? Well those of you who know me will be surprised (or, more likely, astonished) to hear that we didn't even visit the metrocentre!!! My trip to the wonderful Razzberry Bazaar snagged this fantabulous (well I think so anyway) shirt - they usually only ever make two or three items in a particular fabric so it's extremely unlikely I shall ever run in to either of the other lucky owners! You can view their stunning range of bohemian fashions here, should you so wish.
Next we visited Imagenations, a craft store for me where I was extremely reserved and this is what I bought there. I know, I know - it's not up to my normal stash but I AM saving myself as I do have two lovely crafting buddies coming to visit (and craft) with me this weekend and I have found somewhere that we can all shop together so I needed to keep a little something in reserve for this weekend!!!!
However, my husband had no qualms whatsoever at our next shop stop . . . . and spent loadsa money - but he's happy and this trip was for our anniversary so I'm happy if he's happy!
I think that really is about all of the photos from our trip to Newcastle . . . next real photo opportunity will be this coming weekend when Lauren and Wynneth come to visit me from Essex and Cornwall respectively. I met these lovely crafting ladies via a crafting web site and think we've become really good friends as well as crafting buddies since then, so much so that Wynneth and her hubby will be meeting up with my husband and I in Florida, in October (Lauren may or may not be joining us too). I am hugely looking forward to Craftapalooza and the prospect of showing Wynneth (along with Karen and Katie) my favourite crafting haunts - and its only 56 days away, that will soon roll by.
Right now, given that this is the second post of the day please don't forget to check out the earlier post for more piccies (if you haven't already) - I'm off to visit my friend, Dorothy, who's in hospital following a knee op last week. This evening I'm off to physio and this morning I was at the hairdressers so a busy day for me . . .
Have a splendid Tuesday, despite the weather which (btw) is chucking it down in those blooming stair rods again in Bristol!!!!
