Thursday Snippets



I bought these cute pair at the V&H Fair. I spotted them on Jayne's stall...whilst unbeknown to me...

Mr S was buying me a mirror from Amanda...one which has been finished this time!! lol

Now...you might be thinking that I have begun my crafting in readiness for the next fair...

Not so!

A very odd thing happened to me about three weeks ago.
I had an email from someone who asked if I could make her some Lavender bags for her wedding 'favours'.


The strange thing was this..she is called 'Sally'...but that's not all...!!



Her second name is Elizabeth, as mine is..but that's not all...!




She lives in Newton Abbot..!




I've been working like a trojan to get them made...so I've not been far...



But I've been to vote!

This will make you laugh..look where I always have to go to vote...see the building behind my car!





Out of my gate...and six more steps!
;-)

Should be an interesting turn out!
Did you really pop over the hedge Sal? what fun you have had today.
I have been very lazy today, I think I need the odd lazy day.
Not on my own today though!

I have to jump over the garden wall to the school next door to vote - as I'm not really up to jumping at the moment I walked round, maybe 12 steps so twice as much exercise as you!

Where we vote is just over our back hedge and up through a little 'nature reserve' belonging to the school - but as our hedge is a very high holly hedge we walked round about 5 mins walk:) Love the wedding favours:)
