A Day Out...


I love Lincoln, and today we had a day out so that we could visit The Usher Gallery.
I was really excited to have one of my paintings included in the Lincolnshire Artists' Society's 110th Annual Exhibition.
We also, quite by chance, happened upon one of mine and Mini Goth's favourite shops, Forty Four, on the top of Steep Hill.
It's always full of quirky treasures and temptations...
After much 'oohing and aahing' we had a pootle around the Cathedral Quarter...
We also paid a visit to the stunning 'Poppies Wave' installation at Lincoln Castle.
(Sorry about the selfie!)
Time for ice cream!
And my ever so lovely hubby bought me a pressie...
a beautiful unicorn lamp shade from Forty Four!

  1. I love Lincoln, and such an amazing cathedral. I'm a little worried about the weather, though. We've been wearing shorts and T-shirts for weeks here. It'll be a rude awakening when I move to Wales!

  2. Confession time! I've never been to Lincoln! My loss by the look of it.

    But I recognise those lampshades! Lush Designs if I'm not mistaken!

Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
