Warwick Castle

I have been neglecting my and other people's blogs these last few days. An antique shop close to where I live is closing and had a 50% sale so Jane and I bought several things for our website. We had a wonderful time poking around for bargains and choosing what to buy but, of course, all this booty has to be photographed and uploaded to the website along with a description - all very time consuming. So that's my excuse!

My husband and I recently had a lovely day out in Warwick spending most of the time looking around the castle. It really is worth a visit if you've not been.

I'm so pleased they were expecting us for lunch.....

....and a recital!

How I would love to own a similar cupboard to this to store all my antique linen.

A lovely day was had by both of us.

I promise to be more pro-active with leaving comments on other people's blogs during the next week as I do so enjoy reading them.


  1. Oh how lovely! And I would just LOVE to own such a cupboard (probably my favorite piece of furniture)! The castle is so lovely ~ and I hope you enjoyed your lunch! heehee

    I will have to check your shop now that you've added more treasures!

  2. Warwick Castle is indeed a lovely place. I haven't been for years. My cousin was a guide there many years ago.

    I missed you yesterday. Did you get to Shepton?

    I'll have a look at your site to see what goodies you have.

  3. Hi Ruth, yes Warwick castle is a fantastic place to visit. Think I need to pop along to your website then and have a look at all your latest treasures! Clare x

  4. Thanks for the lovely comments. My oldest daughter's middle name is Rose! I fancy that linen cupboard too - looks like you had a good day out.
    Just going to check your website.
    Best wishes kim x

  5. Thank you for sharing the trip to Warwick. It looked fab. I seem to have missed a few blogs and had fun reading about your great grandmother's wedding dress with the bustle.

    I made my wedding dress, it was Edwardian style with a bustle ... what memories.

    best wishes Ginny

  6. Oh, I just discovered your site, so wonderful. I will be back to visit again.....

  7. That's a very good excuse you have!
    Gorgeous photos of that castle!

  8. That Castle is stunning and they set a lovely table just for you! I LOVE that linen cupboard as well!! I checked out your site and you offer some beautiful linens. I am especially fond of English lace.

    I will be sure to visit often!! I am going to add you to my favorites!
