a new studio…

my apologies go out to all you lovely people who used to stay over in my spare room, as it is now my studio! Yay! It’s warm, spider free AND… as old age starts sneaking in,  I don’t have to go too far for a pee! (It’s the only room in our house with an en-suite!)

Don’t worry, the sofa bed is now in the lounge, which is actually a really cosy place to crash as you can fall asleep watching the glowing embers of the log burner and you won’t be awoken by the sun rudely appearing through the sky-light at stupid-o-clock!

anyone for cocktails.......?

RIP glorious treadmill, which has been moved into my shed/old studio, probably never to be used again as I’m sure it has contributed to my terrible backache (good excuse to not use it anyhow) and has been replaced by an equally gorgeous cocktail cabinet which I found in a junk shop for £20 – love it! It has a new life now, housing my vintage china, ready for candle creating!

I’ve been adding loads of dates to my 2012 calendar, starting off with a little evening at The Coffee Rush where you can have a glass of vino and purchase my lovely candles, vintage gorgeousness from My Sister Mabel (aka Tracy Hill) and interior gifts and pressies from Becca (ex-sugar worm but currently undergoing a re-branding)

A lady called Kay is the inspiration behind a new community project which starts in March and will run on the first Saturday of every month at Victory Hall, Exminster, from 9.30am until 12.30pm.  The aim is to bring together local people who will hopefully purchase some of the fresh local produce, crafts, gifts and homewares.

Unfortunately I cannot make the March one, but will be there on April 7th.

Saturday March 31st is the “All things Vintage & Lovely” fair at The Imperial Hotel, Torquay. It was such a success in November I’m glad the organisers have decided to do two more this year. The second date is December 1st. You can check them out on facebook.

organised at last.....

The brilliant Craft Hub Fair is on Sunday April 1st, these are always good. With a great mix of different crafts, reasonable prices and a fab cafe.  The dates of all the Craft Hub Fairs are on the calendar. We will be heading up to Exeter tomorrow Saturday night to celebrate Pip’s 40th birthday (the co-founder of The Craft Hub) A Balkan gypsy band will be taking to the stage, my other half will be in his element – beware of flying arms! Well that’s it from me…..
