A Morning in Oundle.

When I buy Magazine's I tend to flick through the pages first, just admiring the eye candy, then later I might go back, pick it up again and read through some of the articles.
That's how I came across Foxtail Lilly a wonderful local Florist owned by Tracey Mathieson.
You may have read the same article, it was in Country Living.
Seeing that she also sold hand made gifts and vintage treasures I thought I need to go there and have a peek. So glad I did..!

When we got there we were greet by a pretty garden still full of colour and Tracey's home.
I love the colour of her front door, and sorry Tracey if you ever read this, but I had a little sneaky look while talking to your amazing father through the window, sorry I just couldn't help myself, I am in love your cottage.

Some snaps of the shop.

Tracey also opens her garden several times a year to the public.

Somewhere definitely worth a visit if your anywhere near Oundle.
Tomorrow I am off to visit Chatsworth with my lovely Blogger friend Claire for the day.
I am really looking forward to it, so lets hope the sunshine's for us....Em xxx


  1. I'm just IN LOVE with the colour of that door!
    We went up to Derbyshire a couple of years ago and stayed at the pub in Beeley and visited Chatsworth- it was totally amazing, and the people were really lovely. You'll have a great day out.
    How are the chooks doing?

  2. That is already on my list to visit! It looks so gorgeous; I might have to bring that up to the top of my list.
    I hope all is ok!

  4. Hi Em,
    I saw the same article in Country Living and have been meaning to pop over to take a look. It looks like a gorgeous shop and is not far from Northampton.I often go to Oundle especially when the farmers market is on once a month.If you aren't too far away perhaps you might pop along to our vintage fair in Northampton on Oct 23rd, it would be lovely to see you.
