That was the Week That Was...

Last week was a bit of a blur...
My youngest had another Birthday...

17 today!

She had to perform in her school's cabaret for three evenings (including her Birthday).
Her main piece was singing a duet...

A song from 'Oh What a Lovely War', which she will be performing in proper, early next year.

I've had a busy week in the shop with the run-up to Christmas...

So I've been regularly changing the displays...
and bringing in more stock as items have sold.
We had snow...
Our first snow in November for 17 years, I believe.

It's been hanging around for quite a while now...
I had handmade items to get on with last week too...

I managed to make three of my medium sized rag dolls.
This is Isla in her recycled Fair Isle sweater.
Saturday evening was party time for our daughter...

It was fancy dress with an under-the-sea theme.
And then an early start yesterday...It was time to be off to Chipping Sodbury for the Vintage & Handmade Fair.

It was a busy fair and great to meet up with lots of friends again...

My thanks to all who stopped by to say hello and who made a purchase or two. x

I bought some beautiful supplies from Sue...

A gorgeous one-of-a-kind necklace from the very talented Viv...

And I bought several pieces from Louise Taylor-Bowen, but can't show those on my blog, as they are to be Christmas pressies...and you never know who might be peeking! ;-))
Tomorrow is 'D-day' for my hubby...Thanks for all your well wishes, he appreciates your kindness.
Have a great week,
Niki x


  1. Lots of eye candy again, Niki. Thanks for that. Glad to read the shop has been busy.
    I'm off to see Oh What A Lovely War tomorrow evening at my son's school, so it must be a popular show for the schools this year. xx

  4. Hi Niki
    It was good to see you on Sunday, though alas, it was in the usual blur of the day. Your stall did look wonderful as always.
    Best wishes for hubby's back op today.. Hope he makes a speedy and comfortable recovery.

  6. I was at the Fair on Saturday but I didn't realise you were you, if you know what I mean. I would have loved to have said hello, though I remember your stall of lovely things. It was a great day. Helen x
