Hampshire stop & some thrifting
Last Saturday, Alan and I had to go to Hampshire. On our way back, we stopped in a village called Odiham which is within a mile of Fleet. We were recommended a pub which would be a nicer alternative to the Fleet services (M3 Motorway)
The Waterwitch Pub - Odiham

The pub backs on to a canal
After a lovely lunch, we decided to have a walk around Odiham before heading back to Somerset. It felt very quiet for a Saturday, a few shops were open. There are several pretty houses throughout the village.
A much nicer way to break up the journey back home, it certainly beats Fleet Services...
I haven't had much time for thrifting of late, too busy re-decorating. Besides, we need to have some of the rooms finished before I can contemplate adding any more to them! Having said that, I recently popped in to my nearest town and couldn't resist going in to a couple of charity shops to have a look around. Needless to say, I came back with a few things.
I love the blue of this tea set
On Wednesday, I popped in to Wells and bought these beautiful glasses from The Laundry, a pretty boutique selling clothes, jewellery and other gifts. Unfortunately they don't have a website. You can find them at 58 High Street, Wells, Somerset.
They were just £9.95 for 6 glasses, there is a matching jug too which I may well get too!
Yes, a peek at the newly painted floorboards!
Wood panels on one of the walls, they need a third coat of paint and that will be it on the painting front. It's getting there....
Have a great weekend!
