Girly day out

My girls and I had a trip to Holt today before Eldest daughter goes back to Exeter tomorrow.
We parked next to this tree and I couldn't resist a photo.

Sisters, enjoying the sunshine. Holt is one of our favourite trips with its trendy shops and galleries

We had a look in here.

And here, I think this is a great name for an antique shop.

These I think are great.

And this I love.

But it was time for lunch

So down to Wiveton Hall fruit farm which is on the coast road, has this view straight out across the salt marsh to the sea and serves great food  on Emma Bridgewater china. The weather just made it even better.

Later in the day Eldest and I went to see her close friend Kel who is just finishing her degree in costume design. Today  her sister and a couple of friends to put on some costumes she had designed and made for a fantasy production and which she needed photos for to put in her portfolio.  We went along to see what they were like.

First hair and make up.

This top is part of her next project with french seams and elbow darts.

One subject finished complete with boned corset.

A last couple of stitches and the bird is finished. They went on to the beach to take the photos.
 I think they are great and hopefully she is going to have a great career ahead of her.

Hope you have had a great weekend and welcome to my new followers.



  1. What a lovely day out, my friend and I decided if we ever opened a cafe we'd use emma bridgewater or cath kidston tableware..... Your friends work looks amazing, I hope her end of year show is successful and she finds a job quickly :)
    P.S thanks very much for joining in on our swap, it's lovely seeing the button on your blog :)

  2. What a lovely day you had Gill :) I love the blossom on the tree, so pretty :)
    I miss the east coast, it is great this time of year.
