Well..... now suitably recovered...
what a fab day Wednesday was.. we arrived in London at 10.30 had plenty of time to browse Camden passage ...a few vintage clothing shops, a few stalls along the way .. a lovely cup of coffee and then off to CL!!! what a beautiful entrance hall, with small trees in blossom birds twittering lots of spring flowering bulbs scenting the air...then we started SHOPPING.......... i have to say this was one of the best shows we` ve been to in the last few years, lots of new stands that we haven't seen before ... not to much in the way of similar type jewellery and interior stands. (or imported cheap stuff euk!)
There are lots of very talented people out there.
we had a lovely lunch of smoked salmon and crayfish salad ,with some elderflower fizz to wash it down. then back to shopping and ohhing and ahhhing! home by 6.30 exhausted, dinner , bath and bed by 9.30......great day.
Easter is nearly here so have been thinking and painting these beautiful handmade (in England) wooden eggs .. love all the pastel colours. not sure exactly how i will decorate them but I am sure i will think of something ...
I have also found a lovely local lady that makes soaps, bath bombs and lots of lovely lotions and balms , beautifully packaged which i hope to sell in my shop I will keep you posted as to when they arrive hopefully in the next couple of weeks.
I had better finish off now and get ready to go to the shop i have lots of cushions to make, i have some feather pads arriving Monday so i need to make sure i have the covers ready,
have a good weekend .................Hx

Hectic week this week I am in London on Wednesday for The Country Living Fair at the Islington Business Design Center. my good friend Marion and I try to get to at least one of these twice yearly fairs.. its a whole day of beautiful interiors, clothing, jewellery, food and so much more. we indulge ourselves in almost a man free zone of girlie stuff and prettiness, a lovely lunch and come home exhausted physically, but mentally inspired..... worth a visit. i will let you know all about it when ive recovered. have a good week ..........................Hx
