Sunday Retail Therapy

This morning we took a trip over to Winchester. I have had Cath Kidston and Joules vouchers sitting in my sewing room since November - which is an all time record for me in not rushing out and spending them straight away! I have always been very bad at saving things up for a rainy day, so I am quite impressed that I have held out until March (even though it definitely was not raining!)

Winchester was lovely in the sunshine and I took my new camera with me for it's first outdoor outing. I thought I would share with you some pictures of one of my favourite shops in this post and some outdoor spring pictures in my next post (and possibly some pictures of the goodies I got with my vouchers!).

The Hambledon - A pretty but unsuspecting exterior!
It has a really good Orla Kiely selection
I love these Swedish style prints by Japanese artist Takashi Furuya
Lots of nice kitchen bits

A really interesting selection of books - I was quite tempted by the Rob Ryan & Carol Ann Duffy book the Gift - but I resisted!

Of course my photos really don't do this shop justice, it is spread across three floors and I could have spent hours in there if the Little Bobbins hadn't been prodding absolutely everything within reach!
