  1. Oh wow, I'd love to go to a calligraphy class! I used to do it as a kid but didn't transfer the skill into adulthood. Ice cream month sounds amazing too, and the vintage weekend! Now I'm wondering why I've never been to Sheffield...

  3. I never got to visit Sheffeild before I permanently moved from the UK to the USA and I think if I get to visit home soon I will make a stop off to see what it has to offer. Sounds like it has a lot going on! Great post!
