So where did the HenHouse gang go this weekend? Where do you think?! I'm taking you with me. Come on...
I spotted that distinctive blue paintwork a mile off. The pace quickened. Come on!
The Munchkin found himself a little corner with the cute doggy display so that I could get on with serious mooching.
Firstly, though, I spent ages nattering as who did I find inside but Isabelle and my lovely pal, Louise. It was a complete surprise to meet Louise (and her other half and mum), which really made the visit for me! Apologies to Mr Louise and Mr HH who looked bored to tears, ha ha! We girls can chat and we can shop and don't they know it!
Of course, the time came when I could natter no longer and needed to get down to serious investigative work. The beautiful dresser is an obvious focal point when you step inside. I should point out that shelves had been plundered somewhat by us eager shoppers!
The bed looked so cosy, I think I could probably be found there on slow afternoons, amongst the eidys!
There were some beautiful vintage clothes and hats available and a particularly gorgeous rosy dress. If only I were a size 10 ( ha ha big haaaaaa!)
Yes, I love pansies. This hat was much more beautiful in reality than the photo suggests, actually.
There were pretty covered coat hangers hanging on the bed. I was captivated by what were clearly stunning eiderdown fabrics used to make a couple of them.
More tempting goodies...
Some pretty prints adorn the freshly painted walls and can you spot the lovely curtains Niki has made using vintage fabric?
I have a severe weakness for vintage aprons so I did very well to resist this one. It did look very at home on the mannequin, though.
Ah, it was lovely and quite a treasure to be found in Shepton Mallet. You MUST visit if you are in the vicinity (and make a special journey if you're not!)
And were there purchases? Oh, of course there were. But then you knew that! There was also super thrifty shopping in my fave charity shop earlier in the day and of course, the antiques fair was on at the nearby Bath and West Showground, so it seemed silly not to pop in. But those, my dear friends, shall have to wait until another day as this Hen needs her beauty sleep!
