What a week this has been. A lovely day last Friday at the Shepton Mallet Antiques Fair where I found some lovely things. It paid to be more controlled this time as I am usually swept away by all the delightful things to buy and spend most of my budget by stall three!! I should have taken some photos of my purchases to show you but will do that next time. I am sure you will love my old wooden doll and early 19th century paper covered chest. Saturday we had a wonderful evening at The Windswept Cafe in Newquay (sorry to say this, but its the only thing worth going there for except the zoo). Sunday we went to an open garden along the river from us I took my camera thinking it would make a nice post but had forgotten to charge it so only took three photos! Monday woke with a bit of a sore throat. Tuesday an even worse sore throat and another horrible trip to the dentist. Wednesday full blown flu in a day bug! Managed to get a walk on the beach in the morning but almost didnt make the drive home I felt so awful and spent the rest of the day in bed. I must say that there is nothing like a big fluffy cat in your bed with you when you feel poorly, he purred and snuggled up and was better than any hot water bottle and stayed as long as I needed him. Still a bit grim today but my head is a bit clearer and my joints have stopped aching, hope I will be OK by Sunday as I am at the Lostwithiel Festival with Christine and Gertie, we all have stands next to each other, at the Community Center if you can come along.
I took these photos of my new studio to show you, just a little snoop round. Its still a bit untidy not everything has found a home yet but I cant believe that all of this went into my room in the house!
Outside we had a deck area built as the ground gets very wet here whenever it rains. Its a nice place to take a break and listen to the birds.
My journey to work is down this path from the house. Mr Crow spent many a long weekend making this path. I hope soon to have a little chicken run on the grass here and some bantams to listen to while I am working. We used to have chickens here but when we got the ex battery girls they destroyed the grass so we moved them up to the orchard where I hardly ever see them, so it will be nice to have some more.
A couple of little projects here, got these at Shepton. The pram needs a bit of a clean up and is destined for sale, so too the old Star sailing boats which mainly need re-stringing on the sails.
Hope you enjoyed the little tour, I still have not got down to any serious work in the studio yet and cant wait to get my paints out and finish that painting and get on with others I have in mind.
