I Love Hebden Bridge!

We've just spent the most fabulous day in the gloriously arty and laid back Hebden Bridge.
I'm ashamed to say that I've never visited before and now I can't wait to go back!
First stop, 'Lucy And The Caterpillar':

As well as gorgeous and quirky vintage treasures, there is a beautiful in- house collection by Lucy Conroy.
She has a lovely Etsy shop called IAMLUCILLE.
Yes, the Bambi tin came home with me!
Alas and alack, the poodle was a little large to smuggle back though!

After all that pootling and rootling around, it was time for dinner.
Now, a little Italian cafe had been recommended, so off we ventured to Marco's.
You may have noticed in previous posts that pizza is one of my weaknesses and obsessions.
For the paltry sum of a measly fiver I had one of the most delicious pizzas I have ever tasted.

The place was full of kids and noise and laughter and I loved it.
I kept telling Lottie how much the place and the food reminded me of when I visited Italy as a child.
And lo and behold, the chef is from Florence!
I will be back!
But the adventure didn't stop as we were driving out of Hebden Bridge, o no!
I managed to persuade my kindly hubby to drop us off at Walkley Clogs...
These were my faves!
Now that's one big clog!
I couldn't decide which pair I loved the most, so I will be visiting their web site very soon!

My favourite photo from my holiday.
Just part of a peeling sign.
A girl's gotta get artsy sometime!

Fancy A Cuppa?

Don't know about you but I'm feeling a bit peckish....
Let's pootle to one of my favourite chill-out haunts in Cornwall, Johnny's Cafe.
Not only is the food delicious, there's many a delicious treat to buy too!
I must love mooching around here, it's so laid back and beautiful .
I wonder if this is 'Johnny'?
Mine's an Earl Grey please, what do you fancy?
