About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

Blists Hill Victorian Museum - Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of our Blist Hill visit. The Haberdashery/Millinery was a feast of delight for anyone into fashion, fabrics or even dressmaking. Plenty to see and enthuse over.
 I couldn't help but spot the notice board and loved this advert asking for someone who could manage butter from one cow...
 I also loved the photo of this dear old lady. I hope she wasn't still in service.
Hubby and I took a slow meander around the Victorian funfair and hubby did manage a small win on one of the side shows. A bottle of bubbles for Little Lady.

In the background you can spot the old school house. More of that in my next and final post.

Hope you're managing to last through the photos, x

  1. I love looking at History like that. Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong era : )
