Brighton Rocks!!!

Ohh what a fun day I had yesterday.
Early start, up at 8am out by 9am in Brighton for Bill's Breakfast by 9.45am.
Yummy breakfast if your ever in Brighton try and make a visit to Bill's.
It started in Lewes and then became a soo popular that they opened in Brighton.
It's a cafe within a fresh produce store, right in the heart of the North Lanes.

It had a great atmosphere and really set Gem & I up for our shopping trip.
So I had heard on the grape vine that there was a CK in the South Lanes, so obviously I went in search of the mecca and was pleased to spot the baby blue facade glinting at me from a distance.
Gem and I anxiously waited for the clock to chime 11am when the doors to the inner sanctum would open. Obviously I took some photos of the windows which were beautifully merchandised as usual.

Once in it is like a tardis with nooks and cranny's galore full of loveliness.

I purchased a Blue stencil mug for my CK mug collection, I have decided that as I don't get to a CK that often I will treat myself to a mug each time I am there. I also got some fabric which was on sale bargain! At the till the sales consultant told us about a crafting event they are holding on Thursday 22nd October in the evening in aid of Maire Curie. Only £5 but unfortunately I am busy, I have put my name down for any future events though as they are talking of making Craft evenings a regular event. Great Idea me thinks.

So off we went up to the main shops, me swinging my CK bag and Gem marching in search of more shops. I had one other mission for Brighton, a fabric shop right at the other end of the main high street. Bargains galore, lots of pretty fabrics at great prices.
My stash got considerably bigger!!!

Lots of crafting has been done in preparation for the fair, eek must make more stuff!!! more about that later this week.
So the start of a new week is here, Monday is over and only 4 more days until the weekend.
Enjoy your week, mine is hectic as usual.


P.S If anyone fancies meeting for a day out in Brighton let me know xxxx
