Homely

We're spending a lot of time in Kendal at the moment, for no real reason, but this weekend we went looking for art, and pie. 

We visited a gallery we hadn't been to before, but as the bathroom cost quite a bit less than we thought, we were brave and went into a place that looked a bit more fancy. The place was teeny tiny, until we started chatting with the owner and he opened the door to the other three floors of the shop! The owner talked us through so many of his amazing pieces, and was really skilled at figuring out our budget and taste without actually having to ask us anything!

People talk about love at first sight and just knowing when the person is the one, we were like that with the print that came home with us. 


Basement Steps, Fulham by R.C Collins. There was just something about it that we both love. I can't wait to get it on the wall. 


We also had pie.

  2. It's an interesting print. When you know it works, good to pull the funds out.

    1. Thanks. As much as I love a bargain, sometimes it's good to find that thing that's just right.

  3. You're so right. We can go into galleries and see nothing but then walk into one and within 5 minutes I know which one I love and will hopefully be taking home. Sounds like a lovely day out especially with the added bonus of pie :) xx

  4. I like it. Sometimes you just know straight away what must come home with you. Hope you brought some pie home too.

    1. Thanks. I ended up with two pies! One squash and butterbean, and one Mississippi Mud, both delicious.

  5. After reading loads of 1960s kitchen sink novels as a teenager I loved the idea of living in a basement flat belong a busy street - your lovely print is exactly the view I envisaged! x

    1. Thanks. He was an amazing salesman. He very much reminded me of a former boss, my dad always said he had a way of charming money out of your wallet!
