Greengate has arrived!

Hello my lovelies.
We had yet another dollop of snow yesterday morning, quite a shock really as there wasn't any forecast!
I must admit it did look very pretty with the sun making it twinkle and sparkle.
But that's not what I want to show you today. No today I want to take you to Karen's pretty shop, Milkchurn Cottage. We're both very excited as Karens Greengate order has arrived at last! Oh, we've both been waiting and waiting for all of this loveliness to land on the Cottage doorstep.
So lets go take a peek...
Look! Doesn't that look scrummy! I do love Greengate, it seems a little more subtle than Cath Kidston, but still as pretty.

I luuurve those little tins, and look... my home sewn cupcakes and birthday cake have pride of place along side too.


My favourite.
Isn't this pretty?
Do you know, I do believe it's Mothers Day soon! Hmmm...
Sorry I had to have a closer look at those beautiful tins.

Well, I really must tear myself away now

I have some sewing and crochet to do for another pretty shop although this one can only be visited online. If you go to the products page you might recognise the little bunny in the top left hand picture.

Thank your for all of your kind comments about my Accidental Blanket. You make me feel all warm and squidgy inside : )

I feel like a child in a sweet shop reading your post today. So much deliciousness, I want it all. I totally agree with you about the tins, they are perfect and thanks for such lovely links; the Pheasant website is new to me and a real goodie, I love the idea of everything being from Yorkshire and such a range of talent you have up there too. Love the bunny by the way.

Keep warm! Kate x

What a wonderful shop, I could easily spend hours there. All of the Greengate things are incredibly beautiful, what a treat. Great job on the cakes, they are very pretty. Sorry to hear about the snow, we are finally having a break here, almost 50 degrees today, just what I needed to help with the serious winter blahs. I've been doing really well with my 20 minutes so I need to catch up with showing what I've done. Thanks again for the challenge, did you ever think this would make such a big difference to those involved?

Thats a pretty awesome place. I could spend a fortune in there. Oh those tins,sigh, they are exactly what I need. Well, perhaps not need, but WANT. Your cupcakes look very much at home amongst all the other pretties.

More snow! It does look very pretty though. We are forecast heavy snow for the weekend.
I must visit the shop when I am next down your way, it looks a treasure trove.

Autumn Mist said...

Oh dear! Another shop where I'd go in and want one of everything. I've never heard of Greengate, so now I'm wondering what I'm missing.

Sarah said...

I would probably buy everything in that shop. I love the tins, they're so pretty. I might have to keep an eye out locally for those.
I can't believe you've got more snow....

I am all for finding a pretty alternative to Cath... I have nothing against her personally just all the hype...

I have been inspired to do a similar blanket to your accidental creation... fingersw crossed I can pull it off and make it work! lol

Maggie Ann said...

Julia said...

Thats a nice shop! Sure I could lose myself (and several £££'s come to that)for a good couple of hours quite easily!
Your cakes and cupcakes never cease to amaze me, the detail is beautiful!

Will go and check the links now, feel in the mood for a spot of online window shopping!

Happy Saturday
