Bobbetts Blog No 28
Thrift shop’s & Tea
it’s week 28 of the Bobbetts Blog and here we are close to home on a creative walk about in Dorking, West Street is filled with lots of treasures while the rest of Dorking can be mistaken for many British High Streets. West Street has a flurry of Antique shops, salvage shops, interior design outlets crafts jewellers and textile outlets. Its a Bobbetts feast to feed our creative hunger ,oh and the Tearooms are a must to enjoy.
Then we moved onto an amazing shop dedicated to soft crafting. Helen bought some tassel’s for another project whilst I looked at upholstery edging ideas, an amazing shop with lots of crafting ideas, We could have stayed all day and played. Ribbons material crochet felting just some of the crafts available here.
As we walked up West Street the window displays filled us with a sense of childhood wonderment. A proprietor had just salvaged a large collections of items from a garden estate in Guildford., They looked just as if they had come out of a secret garden that was left to overgrow. I loved this window, oversized pieces that tell a story.
We treated ourselves to a cup of tea and cake whilst out the other great thing about Dorking is it’s Tea rooms.
We had a giggle at the teapot very British a bit of Corrie!
After a couple of hours we were feeling tired out from all the creative ideas, We chatted about next weeks blog, one not to miss an Easter Display photos shoot. As we said goodbye to Dorking this caught our eye, some Easter inspiration.
I also have an update on the upholstery course so far.
the cuts around the back of the chair were a challenge remembering to cut into it as a Y shape.
This part of the Upholstery journey was quite time-consuming but the result was good
