Homespun Fair

Just a quickie to tell you about the Homespun Christmas Fair. This Sunday at Portscatho Memorial Hall, come along and find some fine vintage and handmade bargains and have a cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake. 
These little blocks I have painted will be on sale on my stall with other bits and bobs.

Hope you can come along, look forward to saying hello if you can. 

Note to self........ really must get back into blogging!!!! I have not done much this year as I have been lured to the wonders of Facebook and have become very frustrated with not being able to load photos or it taking about an hour to load one pic! managed these two in about half an hour (record!).

Happy nearly half the year gone!

Who would believe that one of my New Years resolutions to myself was to blog at least once a week and here we are the end of April and this is my first post of the year!!!!
Well my dear friends I hope you are all enjoying 2012 so far, it has hared along at an unbelievable pace so far, they say as you get older time passes quicker and in my 50th year that has never been more true!
Here is a little of what I have been up to so far........

Long winter walks on empty beaches,

Midgie still needing her winter woolies to keep her snug and warm,

Enjoying painting some of my toy collection,

between more walks by the sea, dreaming of living in one of these houses at Chapel Point,

and enjoying the unusually warm sunshine along the footpath at Helford Passage, 

truly one of the stunning places in Cornwall.

Painting a couple of Nicky's bears with a possible chance of a collaboration in the future.

Spring well and truly sprung in the garden with the cherry tree looking like snow,

 primroses appearing in the lawn

and our resident blue tits back nesting above the kitchen window and tapping on the glass all day!

New work for new galleries.

And of course our first Homespun Fair of the year, a great success and a great day had by all.

Recently discovered Messack Point virtually on our doorstep and never visited, 

stunning walk with glorious views

wonderful old bit of Cornish wall.

Even more new work, another new gallery in Padstow.

And most recently a visit to Tregothnan gardens just down the road and only open once a year for charity. The largest private arboretum in the UK and it was a beautiful day clear blue sky and amazing light.

Full of colour,

a tree plantation (you can buy Tragothnan Tea)

and wonderful trees.

Well thats a little of what I have been up to, I have peeped in at all of you and enjoyed your posts even if I have not left a comment. See you all again soon, I will try and keep up!

It does not seem like a year since I was putting out decorations to celebrate last Christmas, what happened to this year it has flown by at breakneck speed!
Well here we are all ready for the big day, presents made, shopping done (thank goodness for Tesco online!) and house more or less ready for visitors.
I collected together some of my little toys and did the Christmas mantle in the sitting room and also this year did a Christmas cabinet to peep into like a little shop window.

These I found at a car boot in the summer, think they must be paint by numbers but they look very festive on the wall.

Well cheers everyone, have a lovely time.
Lots of love and best wishes for the New Year

Homespun Fair this Sunday

This Sunday is our first Christmas Homespun and it looks like its going to be a good one! We are full to the rafters with lovely stalls selling lots of wonderful things from tea sets and textiles to candles and hand made soap a real mix of all things vintage. Our Tea Shop will have the addition of Gertie's husband who is having a stall selling delicious German home made stollen and cookies for you to buy to indulge in for Christmas, if you can keep them that long without tucking in!

I will be selling my usual eclectic mix of vintage bits and bobs and a few hand made decorations and cards like these tiny hand made Christmas envelopes and gift cards made from old Noddy and Little Grey Rabbit books.

Hope you will be able to come along and see us.

Looking forward to seeing all you lovely ladies old friends and new, just hope I can control myself, maybe I should leave my purse at home!
