Onward and upwards

The next stage of my few days away was going back up country, even if only a little way to Somerset to where one of my brothers live and my Mum was born.
Frome is a lovely little town, if it was nearer to the sea I could live there. It has some fantastic indivdual little shops especially in Catherines Hill where the vintage shops are. Here have a look although some of the photo's aren't brilliant

The yarn shop is great with really helpful staff but I did manage to resist buying any

This place had lots of interesting bits and bobs to look through but again I resisted.

But then came Millie Moon and all my resolve went out of the window.I bought a Tilda book from here

and buttons from here. Well it was the first day of their new bigger shop so I had to support them didn't I.

Then a wander around some of the other shops,

cute little walkways and alleys,

I love this little river running down the hill.

before ending up here for

one of these.

I'm now feeling ready to face the world again I think.

Have a good evening.



  1. What a great place and what about those bowls of buttons !!!!!

  2. I just want to sit there and play with all those buttons :)

  3. How lovely I love the look of that place.

  4. It looks wonderful! Lovely sights and shops - and not far from my parents in law, either... Thanks so much for the link to my giveaway, too.

  5. It is all too gorgeous. You are so good resisting the yarn shop, I am sooo terrible when it comes to cute little shops. It looks like you had a wonderful time :)

  6. What a wonderful little trip i just took along with you! And the last stop was perfect! I could just fall into that wonderful cup!!!
    very pretty pictures!!!!

  7. Loved the bowls full of buttons!! And the picturesque village with the shops going up the hill along that narrow road. So pretty!! They don't have anything quite like that here.
