Morning peeps I'm back.....actually its seems as if I was away for more than 2 days, probably beause we packed in so much with crafting and sightseeing. Hubby took me to Whitby for a two day workshop with Jean Hardy who is the maufacturer of the gorgeous Crafty Individual stamps, well Malcolm her partner makes them as well as all the gorgeous images as hes a photographer. We were so well looked after and I must have put on another seven pounds in weight with all the gorgeous food that Kay laid on for us......amazing salmon and brocoli lasagne.
I'll post pics of what I made at the class later as I need to photograph them, but I though I'd share with you some pics of where we stayed for the first night.....not your usual B&B in fact they don't allow children under the age of 8 as its a bit spooky, but brilliant. The B&B is called Bats and Broomsticks and is well worth a stay especially if you are into Goth/Horror or just plain adventurous. The rooms are all themed with all things Goth, as is the whole of the place, in fact I had this full sized model of a vampire and coffin outside my room so when I need the loo I had to shimmy past it as if you touched it its arm went up and down.....it only got me the once....lol.
Its not every night that I share my fourposter bed with a bat and other assorted creatures.
We met another couple the next morning at breakfast so we were all doing a tour of all the bedrooms in the place as each was different but brillliantly decorated, the attention to detail is amazing,inside the wardrobes you get a wooden stake, hammer and garlic......as well as a heat magazine rofl.
When we went downstairs for breakfast the room was dimmly lit and we had a candlelit full English breakfast, the attention to detail is amazing.
......check out the pic of the cutlery, even the toast was branded
Catch up with you all later
