Yesterday I set off on an adventure to visit Curlypops. I packed up all my goodies and loaded the bike, put sensible shoes on and headed off to catch the train.
I had to take a train in to the city and swap on to another train. I was nervous about how I would handle the bike on the train especially in the busier city areas but I managed it just fine and got more confident as the day went on.
Look at what happened when I took photos of the bike in the subway. It turned all magical and sparkly. I love it.
I arrived out in Curlypops land in time for a late morning tea. Banana Bread and coffee hit the spot.
We thought some op/thrift shopping was the order of the day so off we went. OMG. We hit the mother load. I don't have photos to show the full extent of my purchasing. I had to leave it all at Curlypops house cause there was no way 4 boxes full of goods and an antique cupboard were going to fit in Betsy's little basket.
Here's a tiny preview of some of the fabric we managed to find. I'll post the rest of the photos when I manage to get it all back to my place. I do have one little treat for the giveaway tomorrow so pop back then to check it out.
It was such a lovely day filled with good talking about real things, lots of laughter, plenty of refreshements and shopping to die for. Isn't it lovely when blog friends become good blog friends who then become real life friends and then great real life friends.
