Sunshine on our stalls!

Oh the delights of having an outdoor stall in the summer!

I have taken these photos over the summer so far. Luckily we have had lots of dry weather!

I love the pretty rose plate!

I have sold lots of these hearts!

Colourful bunting, always popular!

Of course it's a totally different story in the winter!

More treasures

Found these gorgeous floral cushions at the boot sale ! Just for a change I am going to keep them for myself! Even though the Hubster has been heard to say ' not more flippin cushins'

Not sure which room they will live in , at the mo they are on the sofa. they would also look lovely in the bedroom or summerhouse!

Also found these baby dresses for just 50p each!

Baby dresses are ideal for little sewing projects as they come in such pretty fabric. Once you have snipped off the skirt and pressed it theres usually a decent amount of fabric!

I'm off to make pancakes for my son, it's such a beautiful day today!

Hope you have a good one!

All these lovelies were just a £1 each, there were 6 or 7 balls if crochet cotton for just £2!
I shall show you more treasures tomorrow as Wilson is tugging at my skirt!
Have a lovely day ladies, thank you for not forgetting me and thank you for the Wilson love too!!

It's been waaaay too long!!

so long in fact, you've probably forgotton me! So what's kept me away? Believe me I have meant to write a post so many times, but there don't seem to be enough hours in the day!! Especially now I have this little chap in my life!!

This is Wilson, isn't he a cutie!

We've had him for four weeks and he's 12 weeks old.He's a Bichon Frise and I love him to bits, in fact we all do, which is a bit of a surprise as the Hubster did not want a dog! In fact it took me a year to persuade him that we REALLY needed one!But guess who loves him to bits now we've got him? In fact Wilson gets a hug before I do!

Here he is with my baby my 21 year old baby, that's another thing that happened while I was away, I still can't believe my firstborn is 21!Doesn't seem that long ago that she looked like this

This is a piccie of my daughter and me at my sister's wedding in the early 1990's!Where did the time go!

It was a bit of a testing time making sure my son revised enough for his GCSE's. And then there was his Prom!
Looking very smart and oh so grown up in his Tux!
Arriving at the Prom with friends in a Vintage Triumph Stag.

We've also had lots of other family birthdays and gatherings in the last few months and the inlaws have just been over for a visit fron Spain too!

Anyway I must tell you about 2 gorgeous swaps that I took part in as this is loooong overdue! Although I've thanked both my swap partners by email I havent blogged about it and I feel really bad about it, so big apologies to bekimarie and Clare, you must be so fed up of waiting for me!!

Let me tell you about the swap with Bekimarie first.We took part in the swap organized by the lovely Emma The Good enough to eat swap, such a good idea for a swap!

I loved all of my swap gifts! aren't they gorgeous!

Such a cute little apple hook which will be going on the wall in my craft room.
The handmade goodies are adorable too, I do love hand made things.

Such a sweet strawberry pincushion

Look at the cupcake too! I love it!

Can't wait to try the cake recipe, it looks delicious!

Thank you again Beki Marie for your very thoughtful swap!

The second swap was the Strawberry swap organized by the lovely Pixiedust and my partner was Clare

I oohhed and aahhed for ages with this one!

Beautiful things!I shall hang the felt strawberry in my craft room.Such a cute pill box!

And a pretty necklace!I love the handmade address book, made so carefully too!

Thank you again to Clare, I really do love all my strawberry themed gifts!

Now I must go and do a little dog training with Wilson, he knows sit and fetch, having a little trouble with play biting though so any doggy tips will be gratefully received!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
