Just follow all these excited women .....;-)


This is always a cheery sight on the doormat, especially when it comes with added goodies!
However, this month it is even more interesting as it features.....

...an 'open house' at a village very very close by to where I live!! ;-)

A couple of days ago, I received a text message :

'Hi Sally. I thought you would like to know that this totally amazing house in Ogwell is now open......


...it is in the old part of the village.
Park at the pub then follow all the excited women up the road! (LOL)
You can't miss it , it is totally divine! '

And so...that's Monday sorted out! My sister and I will be two such 'excited women!'

But in the meantime, talking of 'divine', there is the small matter of a Vintage and Handmade Fair to attend!

I did a 'mock up' in my kitchen yesterday...and sold £30 worth of goodies to a passing tradesman!!

What a fab few days it is going to be.

Oh I so wish I could come to it - sadly two hour drive is something I just can't handle at the moment :-( otherwise I'd be there!

Your goodies look wonderful.

I take Country Living and read the article you refer to - I thought - gosh, I wish I lived somewhere near there so that I could pop in and have a look. Lucky you! Show us what you can't resist buying, won't you?

Will have to try and plan a weekend down your way to coincide with the next V&H fair!! The Northampton one last week was great, and only about 14 miles away!!

Hi SAL! Oh my! You have been one BUSY lady there in England!!! I so wish I had a jet to fly over on so that I could attend your fair. Your display looks wonderful - love the aprons there!

We have the British Country Living in our book store so I will be getting that for sure!

Good luck!

Oh Sal, I am feeling quite deprived now that I see the December issue of C.L. I am still waiting for November's issue to appear and will be lucky to find December's in the newsagents before Christmas.

Great news about your sale ~ you will have to invite a few more passing tradesmen!
