Mrs Black's This n That: The Emporium in Hungerford, Berkshire

Mrs Black's This n That: The Emporium in Hungerford, Berkshire: We sell from a little unit tucked in a corner at the top of the stairs on the first floor of  The Emporium in Hungerford, Bershire. It'...

I enjoyed my visit over at Mrs. Black's This n That, so much this evening, I decided to share it here. Mrs. Black is a very pretty black cat, and her owners'  run a vintage shop in an Emporium, in Hungerford, Berkshire, England.

I always come away from reading at this blog, with the feeling of having had a lovely mini vacation. This time Minerva provided an inside glimpse into her shop. I think you might enjoy a look at some of these lovely, quaint and whimsical vintage treasures on her shelves. I especially like the colourful cat at the beginning of the tour. I also loved the vintage prints of cats, which I think may have come from a different shop within the Emporium,

For me, visiting this blog today was a bit of an escape from a cold, windy, rainy day. Yes, it's been raining all day, as our temperature is not cold enough for snow.  I am grateful that we didn't have freezing rain, as that can make walking and driving treacherous for everyone.

So, I hope you might take time to click on the link above, and savour and enjoy!!

P.S. Day 1 and 2 of my new job felt HARD, trying to get to learn new faces, and routines, etc, and I wondered if I'd made a poor decision in changing jobs. However after two early nights, and making myself eat good breakfasts, I seem to have bounced back. Today, my third day went much better.  :)

What a gorgeous blog that is but I'm not adding any to the list I already follow, haven't got enough time as it is LOL.

I'm sorry about the two hard days but it's always hard starting a new job. I hope it gets better and better for you Brenda. Take care.

I'm glad to hear that your third day was better, Brenda. I think any change is stressful and you not only had a change in work, but in commute habits as well. Take good care of yourself and I look forward to hearing more about your new job adventures.

I'm going to hop over and look at that blog, you have intrigued me... Ann

New jobs are always so stressful with new people and new rules. A few days from now, it will only be a memory.

What an interesting web site. I enjoyed visiting there. Thank you.

Thanks for your kind words each of you!
I'm so fortunate to have met such good and supportive friends with blogging!
I am still finding the need to sleep early each night, but that's really sort of a treat.
I'm glad you may have enjoyed "Mrs. Black's ...", I find it fascinating to visit blogs throughout the world, we're so fortunate to have this opportunity through the internet.
Good Night! :)

PS: Have you enjoyed this book Brenda:

I recently pulled out my copy again (a lot of books around here) and started reading it again. A lot of lovely suggestions, some I have to wait to do but a lot I've tried to incorporate in small ways already.

I think you'll find the Dr. Sarno book very enlightening. His approach is so simple but it works, I know first hand.

Hope the kitties and you are having a good weekend and that your new job is going well too.

Happy Week, G

Hi, there!
You and I are on the computer at the same time, I see, Ger.
Yes, I really enjoy Simple Pleasures.
I had recently put it out on display in my bookshelf, again, to remind me to enjoy the simple things. I think the cover is very pretty, and like the look of it facing out to see.You too, have a good day!

Brenda, How very kind of you to chat about us! We are all very flattered, especially Mrs Black who is now basking in all her glory. I'm so glad that you like visiting us because we like visiting you also! Maybe one day we can do it in person, you never know. Hope the new job settles down and you feel happy soon. Minerva x

Ahh, dear Mrs. Black, Well you deserve to bask in glory.
I enjoyed sharing your post, as it was delightful Minerva.
Thanks for dropping in!

Hope you have a great week Brenda, let me know if you try the black bean soup. It's around 8-10 above here these days and LOTS of rain. Talked to someone in Toronto yesterday and the mayor there is advising people to stock up on food etc, in anticipation of the edge of Sandy!!! I'm glad we aren't in that path.
