More of our UK Holiday...

Hullo my scrappy friends!
Back to our recent holiday... not in order - just how they happened to
download in blogger!
 We spent a day in Evesham. LOVED it! The old churches. Amazing!
 The 'charity shops'  - even more amazing.... I know you've seen this one, but it was fun!
Tom reckoned if I'd put my hat out I might've got some change thrown in, LOL!
 The pub where we had our lunch. From Medieval times. Of course;)
 The Almonry. Over the road from the pub.
Amazing social history museum. The garden out the back was full of
interesting stuff!
The photo says it all! Edited with the Little Moments app for I phone:)
 We met Chloe, Tom's grand girl, who is living & working in London.
That was spesh!
 Flowers in Salisbury - another amazing city to visit. Breathtakingly picturesque place!
 A little Italian cafe near the Inns of Court. Amazing food; very authentic:)
 Our accommodation, above the souvenir shop. 2 stories up. The little door
is on the left of the shop that we used to go up the stairs. We loved it! Right
bang in the heart of Bayswater. Not fancy. Not posh. But handy & a fun place to be.
 Couldn't go without a bit of craft. I've been looking at DIY embellie videos, & decided
 to give my wood bits a glittery update! PVA glue & sprinkled on the glitter.
 I had a pile of cheap photo paper that won't work in my new printer. So covered it
in PVA glue & sprinkled on a pile of glitter. I did use an old 12x12 plastic bag underneath
to catch the glitter, before I moved it to the newspaper to dry.
Strangely, it stuck better to the SHINY side of the photo paper
 Go figure. Deffo doing this again.
I can punch out hearts, stars etc to my hearts content.
MUCH cheaper than buying speciality paper!
And here's a closie of one of the woods 'in situ':
AND while you're here, over at OUR BEAUTIFUL WORLD the prompt is:
CUP.....
soooo....here's my CUP photo:
This is at Ettalong, about 10 mins drive from our place. It was a lovely Sunday morning,
so we took our dog for a walk & then I had a latte overlooking the beach.
Simple pleasures are so often the most special, I reckon.
And one may travel the world, but often, the best place is home!!!
Cheers for now ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  2. Great fun post to read. It looks like you discovered a lot of the "real" UK as well as the obvious attractions and that's brilliant.

    I've tried painting half of embellishments but not glittering. Obviously, that should be next..

  6. Your travel pics and stories get my feet itching to be up and off! Looks like you managed to find lots of sunshine. Especially like the look and sound of the almonry, with it's social history. Great find with the skirt - is that how you manage to travel light - just buy what you need in op shops along the way? Your glitter experiment looks great, but I always seem to wear more than the page when I try to work with the pesky stuff. :D

  8. Lovely photos and England is just beautiful. We stayed in Bayswater on one of our first trips to the UK... I had my bag stolen at a pub just near there :/ So glad you had a good time :D Love the idea of dollying up the chippies. I think while I am on a DIY roll I may do the same. I am so tired of not being able to get stuff here. Very cool with the glitter on the photo paper... Good idea. So glad I had 5 mins to visit some of my fave blogs... <3
