Hello lovely readers
Well we've just got back from a most glorious weekend in Chester. Haven't been before but can highly recommend it. We arrived in the early afternoon on Saturday and took a walk into the town, or is that city, sorry for my ignorance!  We wanted to see what there was to do and to plan out our itinerary for Sunday.
Needless to say our first priority was to hit the CS, knowing that these would be closed on Sunday. Although there was not a great variety of treasures on offer I did manage to find some little bargains. I have been looking for some plates to drill to create a 3 tiered cake stand as I have purchased a handle and the drill bit for the job from Ebay.  I wasn't disappointed although I still have to find the right plate for the top tier.

This was my complete haul

The bottom tier

The middle, got 6 of these so can practice the drilling!

Was thinking of the small plate for the top but as these are a perfect set of 3 will keep just to use for tea with my other mismatched beautiful pottery, but you get the idea...

A super little dish

And finally a crisp linen drawn thread tablecloth.

On Sunday we decided to walk the whole of the city wall and it was well worth the aching feet
The views were stunning and the architecture amazing

The stunning cathedral

And the river views

Finally today we headed off to Ellesmere Port for some real retail therapy and returned home via the Snake Pass.. wow!

Well as you can see we managed to fill our time and the beautiful destination together with our lovely company made it a real weekend to remember and Oh no, we've got to do it all again in four weeks time .... in Bath.
Well I hope you have enjoyed sharing our journey. Back soon with more places and finds.
By the way we did manage a few bottles of wine as well. Cheers!

  1. Hello Jenny,
    Thank you for visiting my blog and for your interest in my little shop - Its about 40 minutes from Bath, through villages and countryside. (At the moment I am only open 4 days a week - tues, thurs, fri and Saturdays) Perhaps you could combine it with a trip to Wells or Frome - I recommend either/both.
    Look forward to meeting you if you make it to Shepton,

  2. Looks like you had a great weekend - I love the photographs! I have just realised that I hadn't thanked you for my lovely Sunshine Award, so thank you very much I really appreciate it :)

  3. Thank you for visiting my blog - it is always good to discover a new blogger! It looks like you had a very satisfying shopping trip in Chester.

  4. Looks like you had a lovely time in Chester. I love Chester, we used to live near by and tried to pop in for a mooch around all of great shops as often as possible. I even bought my wedding dress there.

  5. We most certainly did and would highly recommend it. Such a variety of shops including small boutiques which we miss here. And the tea shops.... Next stop Bath in 4 weeks time. How lucky are we.

  6. Lovely CS finds, great china.
    Glad you had fun, the weather looks good too.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    luv Sophie xxx
