Out and about in York

There was lots of interesting shopping to be done in York. The buildings were fascinating to see from the outside but when you stepped in there were many amazing treasures to find. This shop had a beautiful staircase made from a large variety of tiles!

Another one we loved was named Duttons for Buttons. There was every shape, size and colour of button you could ever possibly need all sorted into little cardboard boxes. The building was originally built in Medieval times. The floors were all uneven and the shop covered 3 floors of tiny rooms. A real treasure!

Sue and I headed off to the Yorkshire Dales where it was very, very windy.....

and went in search of Lucy from Attic 24, no luck.... we think she was out of town!

Then back to our hotel for a quiet afternoon of stitching in the spring sun! Very pieceful!

We are off to London now. More photos soon, Karen
