A sad goodbye to loyal friends as they were packed away!
Crafting began again , in earnest!
And a crisis on Telegraph Hill as one son, his friend
and a clapped out old banger...were stranded!!
Bath time! A real treat!
and a potter around the lovely little Dorset town of
(Oh and another birthday!)
The month when I got on my high horse
about ' copying ' !!
But, I still found time to make some bunting,
find an old Alice and Jerry reading book...
and way hay... Bath again, due to cheap train tickets!
April took us all over the place!
Paignton was looking very cheery .
St Ives...where the tide was out and so I had the CK shop all to myself!
Totnes ( Yes,Totnes pokes its nose into every month!)
Exmouth, where the best bit in the town is the park!
On our way to the V&H Fair at Chipping Sodbury,we
stopped at Shaftesbury for lunch.
And of course, nearer to home, a visit to Hill House Nursery
was an absolute MUST at this time of year!
I decided to have an ' At home sale' of vintage,
handmade and other bits!
We visited Shaldon very early one morning and wandered around
choosing our favourite abode!
A Vintage sale in Chagford saw us return with some fab bits for the garden!
My mum and dad celebrated another anniversary..61 years.
We took them to Cockington..gee up!
I decided that living in Newton Abbot was not so bad after all
And..the Shabby Vintage bloke group was set up at
The V&H Textile Fair!
We found the sun in Clun, Shropshire!
We called in at Hay on Wye on the way
Ludlow was a must as we tracked down the new Zani Lady premises
And then we found ourselves Cornwall bound
for the Homespun Fair at Portscatho.
The Rougemont Gardens , Exeter,were at their best!
We took a few days break in Dorset!
On the way , I grabbed a vintage satchel in Honiton
and then there was The Girls own store, Bridport!
Now married to Mr S for 17 years, he took me on a jolly
to his hometown of Brixham!
We had a lovely stroll around Wells after the first Frome
And ..Totnes again..for the brilliant Nostalgic Mix Fair!
Sal's Vintage Fabrics got a mention in Sew Hip Magazine!
The V&H Christmas Fair was excellent..Mr Custard
thoroughly enjoyed it!
A good friend and I had a pressing engagement and spent the morning
looking at vintage irons!
Mr S and I caught the train to Barnstaple!
Salisbury was simply beautiful!
Old friends returned to make their presence felt in our house.
A spot of Christmas reading got me into the spirit!
And...yes..late night shopping at Totnes is something
that everyone should experience!! ;-)
One wonders what 2011 will bring!!
