Yesterdays day out

Yesterday we went to Barnard Castle - the main reason was so Mum and I could visit Graphicus however alas it was shut! So after a wander on the high street and watching the carnival parade we went here

Egglestone Abbey - wow it was gorgeous - a peaceful and beautiful day. Meghan took these pics with her mobile phone!

Close to the Abbey was the most gorgeous tea room where we sat outside and were spoiled with afternoon tea served in wonderful style by the most friendly of people! (sharp contrast to the cafe in Barnard Castle where we were served by the most unhappy waitresses on the planet. The lady from the kitchen was the most happy and even she didnt smile - just did not frown either!) . It was lovely - shame about Graphicus though......

Just to remind you about the TYI June swap - if you add the logo to your blog and leave a comment here
I am doing a prize draw on Saturday for a craft individuals stamp plate. You've gotta be in it to win it LOL x


  1. Oooh I love Barnard Castle but never been to Graphicus - tell me where it is so I can go next time! Those photo's at Egglestone Abbey are great too - my 'phone camera is poor so I have to remember to take the actual camera everywhere - no room for spontaneity - its tough if I forget it!

  2. Wonderful photos Janet. I love Barnard Castle - is Partners still there? I used to get wonderful Christmas decs and gifts there.
    Hoping to get to Graphicus next time I'm up - must check the opening hours though!

  3. Looks like you had a lovely day for it! We have had rain for most of the day today, and yesterday was very grey and a bit showery too

  4. Oh Janet you are making me so envious. Went up to Barnard castle a couple of years ago for a craft do and it was fantastic. I didn't manage to get in to Graphicus as there was no time. We syated in a lovely Hotel and I would love to go back. Perhaps one day.


Thanks for taking the time to stop by and look at my bits and pieces. If you leave a comment I can pop over to yours and have a peep at your work too.
