There's no place like Home

There's no place like certainly true. It was lovely to get home even after such an exciting event as the Christmas Vintage and Handmade Fair.

The day did not start well for me as I fell face down in a puddle outside my brothers house when leaving in the stormy pitch darkness of Saturday morning to then be led astray by my sat nav and end up on my way to Gloucester! But from the moment of arrival things improved and the day slid by with remarkable speed. It was lovely to see old friends and make some new ones and its always great to have nice comments about my work, thankyou all of you who came and said hello it was nice to put faces to blogging names. Jayne and Michele as usual worked very hard to make the event such a brilliant success, we are all looking forward to next spring and the next one.

Having used this photo I must just tell you all that my only claim to fame is that I am related to Glenda, the good witch of the North! Billie Burke was my grandmothers cousin and when I look at this picture I can see my gran in her, well a bit anyway.

Sorry its such a quick blog, will be back soon. Have a good week everyone.

This is so cool Jane, related to Glenda. This film is one of my top favorite films. It was on last weekend and we watched it. Love it!

Sorry you fell face down into a puddle, glad you are ok now to tell the story.

Have a great week! No more puddles!

It was lovely to meet you. I must decide what to do with my new doggie friends!

And yes, wow - that is an impressive claim to fame. I really like Billie Burke. She was in some great black & white comedies.

Hi Jane, it was so nice to meet the lady behind so many wonderful creations.

I really want to come on one of your painting courses. Maybe sometime next year . . .

I'm admiring the print I bought from you at vintage and Handmade right now. It is a nice reminder of a lovely day. I forgot my camera . . .oh dear!
