What bliss. We're not able to go on away this summer but reading this lovely post felt like a break for my brain all the same! Thanks so much.
Stephx - who is a huge Girl's Own Store fan too but sadly only online. One of the gorgeous crochet berets the owner makes is my prized posession! The shop looks divine.


oh how lovely your day sounds! Funnily I have just been in your North Yorkshire at our cottage for a week, enjoy sun, see fret, picnics and pretty things, very much like yourself! I was able to blog from the cottage for the first time using my iphone too, heaven! The Girl's Own Store looks just my sort of place. in fact if they just tagged a tearoom onto it you'd never get me away if I were bridport way!


Day 2 sounds just as wonderful! That "Girls own store" looks really dangerous to the wallet!


What wonderful photos! I would love to visit that sweet shop.


you are the queen of crochet and you take really beautiful pictures.
lovely, lovely, lovely visiting with you :)

Lovely day 2 photos - Can't wait to see day 3 tomorrow! - Natalie x p.s - Where did you get the pattern for the ripple blanket please?


You obviously had a great time in Dorset. Your photos are lovely...so glad you have shared them.


Thanks for the link to the shop- have just bought a long searched for pale green coat hook for the cafe! Perfect, thankyou!
Your picnic sounds fabulous, I love picnic food!so easy and no washing up involved. Food always tastes so much better eaten outside as well, doesn't it? especially byt he sea.x

What a lovely post! Gorgeous photos - I am very jealous, it sounds like an absolutely perfect summer day. And I love the look of that shop, what a treasure trove!

It looks like you had the most wonderful day. I just returned from a vacation in Vermont, and the folks up there are having the same type of weather for the past two months. Fortunatley I had four sunny days out of seven. Thank goodness for our crafts on days like these. Your ripple blanket is just lovely.


Can't help but wonder, on top of your ripple blanket is some other crochet which does not look part of the ripple. It looks like a top of the bag you have just crocheted. Please what is it? I can see the ripple through it. It looks like another crocheted circle. Another lovely post.


Hi Lucy, Good to have you back and wow, you were so lucky with the weather. Yesterday was gorgeous here in East Devon but today, very grey, raining and rather windy. Lovely! I too love the Girls Own store and always pop in when I go to Bridport (that at Waterstones and Pam's den for junk china!). Kathy PS. Your blanket looks wonderful, gorgeous colours.


You tell of simple pleasures so wonderfully. I love the fluffy white clouds and the woodland walk. I wish I had a 'Girls Own Store' near me. I am sure I would go around the shop 'inch by inch' too. I am glad that you managed to intertwine some Dorset memories into your ripple blanket. I find your words and pictures so inspirational I think you should bring out your blog in book form. I could then browse through on a whim absorbing all the loveliness that you show and talk about.
