Emily Button in Haberdashery Heaven and a new coat

Emily Button has a fine new coat and wanted to show you. Can you guess what she's stood in front of?
Peter Wilson's golden postbox in Sherborne Dorset.
 Emily had been looking for an opportunity to show off her newest item of clothing so took the opportunity to accompany the granny on a hosital visiting session.
Do you like her wool coat? - green of course! It's been much admired by her friends Vanilla and Dolly. They're a little green eyed at the moment.
Emily's a pretty smart doll and knew a trip to Sherborne meant a trip to Butterfly Bright; home of her favourite thing - buttons!
Emily in button heaven.
Emily spotted the ricrac and wondered if she'd walked into the hairdressers by mistake.
Extensions Emily? Change of colour?
Emily picked up a few buttons and trims to take home in the hope that if she leaves them out, like the Shoemaker did in the story, the Elves will transform them into more coats for her friends during the night. She knows that's when most sewing takes place round here.
Now all that shopping meant one thing - cake!
Another trip to The lovely Bakery Cafe but the wooden cake just didn't cut it.
Bring on the Rocky Road!

PS Today the grandad came home. I think we'll miss the trips to BB and the cafe but not the hospital!

  10. What a lovely coat ... I could do with one like that!
    I finally made it to Custard Hall on Saturday whilst on a quick dash through Dorch. Your corner looks lovely - I was very tempted by the gorgeous little scooter you had there, but I'm afraid we ended up buying a fan for John's office from downstairs. I will be back though! Hope you sell lots for Mothers Day.
    Are you coming tho the textile fair at North Cadbury? Should be good ...
