I took a trip to Shaftesbury, this afternoon, with a couple of items on the list in mind.
Their town hall is rather prettier than ours and there was a craft fair on. With stalls outside as well as in, although I’m not counting it as my open air market.
2. Theatre for performing arts
I teach my paper crafting class, in an upstairs room, at this lovely little arts centre. The Summer show is Dad’s Army, directed by my old infant teacher.
18. Your local pub/bar, coffee house or tea shop
Not my most local cafe, but one I visit occasionally to meet a good friend. My claim to fame is meeting Angellica Bell, in the doorway, when she was filming here for the One Show last year.
This could be a contender for something out of place, or an unintentionally funny sign. Having a sign pointing to the German municipality of Lindlar, in the middle of a Dorset town seems slightly out of place, unless you know they are twinned.
15. A fire truck or police car
I had a lucky break and spotted a policeman parking his car, while manoeuvring my own. I whipped out my camera, while it was unoccupied. It is now an offence (since 2009) to take a photograph of a police officer on duty so I thought I’d best be quick.
That’s it for this week. I will probably capture another cafe, closer to home, and I have something in mind for the funny sign. These will be the final shots for numbers 2, 3 and 15 I imagine. That’s another 3 off the list. It’s going well so far.
Hope to see you again tomorrow evening for Stampin’ Up Saturday. If journalling (never sure if that should be one ‘l’ or two!) or ‘Smashing’ is your thing, then you might want to stop by for a special offer on some lovely new products. Just sayin’.
