Country Living Fair 2013

I can't believe another year has whizzed by and the Country Living Fair is back in town. An skive extended lunch break today gave me just enough time to duck and dive through those middle aged Home Counties ladies and check out all the stands. I even managed to listen to a presentation by TV presenter Catherine Gee (Escape to the Country has never been quite the same since she left) on moving to the countryside.

It was more about window shopping and looking for inspiration than buying today... but I did couldn't resist this lovely bag. Perfect for summer shopping.

As  always there was lots of lovely things to tempt. Have a gander though these...

It's the bag lady ;-)

Spring Open Day

While the weather was distinctly wintery today, at the Hertfordshire Craft Collective it was decidedly sunny for the Spring Open Day. Lots of lovely gifts ideas for Mothers Day - something for every member of the family in fact.

What would you choose? (I want Noddy!)

Wishing all Mums a lovely day tomorrow - including my Mummy!

Protest crafty style

I couldn't resist posting this photo of protesters today in the town of Sherborne, Dorset, who were opposing a Tesco supermarket development (and more power to their elbow I say). Kirsty Allsop would be soooo proud of those crafty boards wouldn't she?! 

Have a great weekend xx
