The Welsh Boy and I went to York last week, I’ve never been before and what a truly brilliantly beautiful city it is! I wanted to stay forever. Anywho, whilst we were there we came across a little craft fair tent type thing which the Welsh Boy suggested we go into (well trained!). There were lots of wonderful handmade items but one stall really caught my eye and when i started chatting to the lovely gentleman who owns the company Oakwood Aromatics with his wife I realised that they truly were the essence of hand/home made!
In the end I settled for some Turkish Moisture melts in rose, which are wonderful little cubes that you can use as a hand moisturizer (my hands are always dry these days from all the washing and alcohol gel at the hospital) or pop into your bath for a truly luxuriant experience! They do lots of other wonderful handmade bath and shower items – and they did a bit for Kirsty’s Handmade Britain which should be on the show on 30th November! I love Kirsty!!!
Anyway no trip to York would be complete without afternoon tea, so we went to the world famous Betty’s tearoom for scones with Jam and clotted cream – pure heaven!
There was a great market selling lots of lovely handmade items and home grown plants, the Welsh Boy bought a chilli plant called a Numex Twilight – I’m not a chilli fan but I desperately want one of these plants now it’s so beautiful so we’re going to try and clone it – i’ll keep you posted on how that goes!!!
lots of love
