In the pretty village of Wing in Rutland, in the village hall, Pearl and I stumbled upon Open Studios. There, my favourite artist was Julie Wade for her amazing textile jewellery and Pearl took a shine to the cat.
Pearl found herself amongst the chocolate mice and lemon sherberts at Toot Sweets of Oakham - purveyors of traditional confectionery. The best traditional and vintage inspired sweetshop ever! Check it out at http://www.toot-sweets.co.uk/
