All in a day...

I went out for the day with my mum and my little boy last week. Despite raining all morning the sun came out so we headed for the coast to Thorpeness in Suffolk.

We found another little gem called Emporium that sells collectibles, antiques and crafts. It was full of so many lovely things, all at reasonable prices. I picked out an ottoman for my mum who I have been giving interior design advice to for her new home and it was only £25. I am going to look for some pretty pale blue fabric to re cover it. I also found a few nice Christmas pressies to get me started. The place seemed to be full to the brim with jewellery, crockery, books, vintage clothes, enamel kitchenware and furniture. I even spotted a favourite of mine, an old school desk with lid. It was only £10! I will definitely be heading back soon.

I saw these Teapots outside a cafe. What a great idea.

Such a relaxing place to visit, we watched the swans on the meare and had hot roast beef sandwiches for lunch.

On the way home the sun was setting on a lovely day had by all.

Love Lemon x


  1. Lovely! I really want an old fashioned school desk too, never seem to find them cheap enough in my area though!

  2. looks and sounds beautiful. I'm definitely pinching the teapot idea for my herbs!x

  3. We've been hunting for months for a retro school desk but they were way too pricey!

    We managed to find a desk for the princely sum of £5 at Woodbridge Festive Market last week. Not a school one but of the same style. What a bargain!

    I may have to head to Emporium myself one day.....

  4. That is a bargain Heidi. I saw one at the auction a few weeks ago but it was a double desk and I don't have the space for it. I don't know what it went for in the end. I didn't go on auction day as I knew I would end up bidding for it. Do visit Emporium, such a variety of things....xx
