Sunday Best.

Hello readers,
Well it's been another wonderful weekend........I've been out and about with my Chris.....today we popped to Emma Bridgewater ( ok....this is like my third trip this month!!! )
We went to see the arch way in honour of the Duchess of Cambridges visit......and the plaque.....they do things so beautifully at EB,  a visit is always a pleasure!!!

Well,  as we were walking about in the seconds shop......I happened to spot a BT gravy plate.....perfect for the gravy boat my sister painted in a recent trip to the decorating studio there.
We are huge fans of EB in the Greevies household........loving our kitchen......so homely and cosy!!

Hope you agree??


Pies for Sunday dinner......bought in Leek on Saturday.......served up with mash......just wish I'd been cooking up a storm in my own polka AGA......one day.......I can dream.......can't i??


Till next time......have a super week.......xxx

Hello folks!!
Today Chris and I took ourselves of for a wander around Leek.......a pretty market town in the Potteries.
After a
Yummy lunch in the Foxlowe.....our favorite place to eat......it's a stunning Georgian house,  turned art gallery/ tea shop!
We pottered around Leeks many pretty shops.....Alcove, Bibelot and a cute little old fashioned bookshop.
We bought a book about Victorian houses,  as we are in the process of doing ours up.......


Next.....we stopped at the stove shop.....to pick up details
 on wood burning stoves.......that done......we headed home......I'm loving my new Cath Kidston clock oven gloves......think Pickle likes them too!!!!  

Till next time.......have a great weekend!!!!
