The Old Hen House

I was lucky to have the day off on Friday, after I'd given the house a quick lick, enough to keep the big lad happy, I took myself off on a wee adventure to find The Old Hen House. Last time we'd tried to find it we got completely lost, but after meeting them at the vintage fair a couple of weekends ago, I was able to find it. It's just outside Donaghadee County Down, follow signs for the library, stay on that road a couple of miles out, on the right side, down a country lane (I'm not brilliant at giving directions!) Imagine a place where all the things that are great about old properties end up, from windows, to door handles, nothing is thrown out. The owner Pete was completely lovely, he made me a brew, chatted away and let me scratch away to my hearts content....

 Tons of beautiful tiles, could be perfect for sorting this mistake out


I came home with a deck chair and shame on me, ANOTHER cat ornament.....I'm making up for the deer ornament Phil broke the other day, kittens and ornaments are not a good mix!
 I had to stop on the way home for a photo of Donaghadee, beautiful!

 Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

  3. I was there on Friday and Saturday Linda and I'm going back again tomorrow!

    1. Love it Becky! I must get a wee trip back and bring my sister next time, she'd love it too

  4. That 'friend in need' sign made me laugh. I make signs out of Scrabble and Lexicon etc, 'sod off' is our best seller but I might try that one,
    thanks. Eco Ethel xx

  5. Oh how I would love a good rummage through there! I spy some chairs I would like.... and those pretty tiles...

    I think thrifting and collecting vintage stuff is addictive! At the moment I can't stop buying "trios" and I'm waiting for a Lou Shabner picture (I IG'd it last night) to come from ebay as well as some vintage fabric. See, addicted!

    By the way, at first glance I thought the last picture was showing somewhere abroad!! Beautiful! :D xx

  6. I need that "friend in need" sign, awesome! :D Beautiful photos and junk to behold.

  7. That place looks AMAZING! I want that typewriter.


Thanks for all your comments : )
