|A scrambled post of several topics...|
One: a quick reminder that Saturday is the Giant Vintage Rag Market at the Cheese & Grain, Frome. 9am to 3pm. I've sorted out loads of stuff at bargain prices. Hope you can make it as it promises to be a fabulous opportunity to buy some vintage textiles and related items at great prices.
|Two: This man, and another one who I shall mention in a moment, have a lot to answer for when it comes to our eldest daughter's exploits! He is one of the reasons that she now lives in New Zealand! He inspired her to study Film Production at uni, and then, with her degree in hand, to pursue her dreams on the other side of the world. But I can't be sad...Just look at that beaming smile...Its not often that one has an opportunity to meet one's heroes in real life...(Actually, doesn't he look a kind, friendly man?)|
|And this is our daughter's lovely man meeting PJ too. For those who don't know, this is director Peter Jackson - Creator of the epic Lord of the Rings Films.|
|Meeting Martin Freeman and Billy Connolly was a bonus! ;-))|
Three: Tomorrow my blog will be 6 years old! Six years ago, our home had just been featured in 25 Beautiful Homes magazine. (Article can be seen on my website under 'press'.)
At that time our kitchen was blue and white. It has had several incarnations since then, but it is now back to blue again - I have gone full circle...Maybe I should just leave things as they are and save myself a whole lot of time and energy?!! Thankfully no money was spent, as I had everything stored away from last time. Actually, I lie! - I bought a (very!) rustic shelf/hook thingy from Trevoole Farm last week, but that is waiting to be fixed to the wall by Hubby. The two red dining chairs will need a re-paint, but otherwise the kitchen is very much how it once was.
Well, except for a little red in here...
|And when you open up some of the cupboards!|
|Four: With a busy weekend getting under-way, (my parents are arriving tomorrow), I may not have a chance to be back at my blog until next week. So I'll leave you with some seasonal colour from the flowers blooming in our garden at the moment.|
Enjoy the rest of your week,
|Love Niki x|
