For her birthday, my sister decided to go on day trip to the southern town of Rye. I followed blindly, as to me only bread could be rye.
We arrived to a small station, on a windy sunny day, our backpacks full of M&NS and sketch books.
What a cute town !!! You can walk from one end to the other in 10 min, so tiny! Rye is filled with charming cottages, antique shops, tea rooms, and a castle.
Our cameras never stopped flashing, to capture the houses with exposed beams. We couldn't help looking through the windows of the cottages. It felt like a set up for one of those British TV Shows that I love ! A big amount of antiques shop were just following each others, on the winding streets.
It was hard to resits to the multiple treasure they were containing.
I manage to find a lovely curved umbrella, with a bamboo handle.
A jazz festival was happening over the weekend, so we were quite lucky to witness a few groups playing in the streets. It gave such a nice atmosphere to the town.
Nice found in a local charity shop.
Clive seems to be quite specimen !
We had an average breakfast in The Apothecary. The cafe is quite vast, with a very nice set up and decoration. But maybe don't go for the food that include bread, we were a bit disappointed by it. The cakes looked much better.
In the local museum of Rye.
I was so happy to be able to wear the short I made, with the intention to wear during my weekend in Devon.
Cardigan, worn backward: Topshop
Short: hand made
Shirt, sandals, umbrella, backpack, sunglasses: vintage
I was surprised to find out that Henry James lived in Rye for quite a long time ( I didn't researched anything about the town before hand, not good , not good). But as our wallet had emptied due to vintage purchases, that we left the exploring of the writer's house to another visit.
The people in Rye are funny folks !
