November garden

Occasionally I take pictures of things in our tiny garden, we had a tidy up at the weekend and everything is bare, but thankfully there are a couple of treasures to be seen still.
The big beautiful heads of an artichoke......

The studding purple berries of some shrub I cannot remember it's name - no use to anyone I know, sorry. It's just a haze of purple that stays all winter if we are lucky, I love it!

.....and a passion flower, we only had 3 flowers this year so this one is an added bonus to a cold, grey November day in Milton Keynes.

These are on their way out, but still add some lovely yellow to a corner.

Purple and artichokes......just to finish off the day. xx

The Stony Report

In spite of the first grey day for a long while, the rain held off on Saturday in Stony Stratford (for those interested, it was the setting for that iconic film "Withnail and I").....a lovely traditional town with fabulous high street full of independent shops........and a great Georgian Community Building York Hall!

Foot flow was steady, but very enthusiastic and I think most sellers had a good day. 

Here are some pics borrowed from a Facebook album, by Neighbourhood Laundry :)

Better plug my own work would be rude not too!

Making draft excluders, as you do! Lovely vintage fabrics.

This lady is a neighbour of mine and we had no idea we both did these events until Saturday  "hello Lizzie" :)

This brave man stood outside all day, brave indeed, but he looks happy enough.

A quiet moment, but you ca see how lovely the hall looked and a corner of my stall with a rather lovely display of gingerbread trees in an old wooden crate.

......lots of eclectic sellers with lovely tempting delights and there is a very cute folding table hiding under here that I purchased - so cute it had to come home with me.

Looking forward to Market Harborough on the 19th, I certainly love this mix of Handmade AND Vintage, you get a lovely class of customer - haha!

Remember, remember - the 5th of November!

haha..... a Christmas fair in Stony Stratford (what else could there be?)

A new venture and outing for some lovely Pre-loved sellers in Milton Keynes and they invited me to their party on Saturday :)

I've got a new range of shrinky cameo's.....

A delicious collection of gingerbread smelling ornaments!

and a few new festive decorations, some smell, some don't!

Hope to see some of you there.....
