That was the Week That Was...

Last week was a busy one...
Our youngest daughter turned 18...I'm now adjusting to the fact that all my children are officially adults...
But my daughter did announce to me on Thursday, "It's OK Mum, I don't intend to be an adult until I'm 21, like they did in the old days!"
I guess she'll be wanting me to do her laundry etc for another few years yet then?! ;-))

Her Birthday celebrations were all a bit of a rush, as we had to get her back to school (an 18 mile round trip) each evening for her to perform in the school cabaret, which ended at 10.30pm each night...I don't know how she managed to keep going...
She was a compare...
Was in several comedy sketches..

And is a member of the girl's choir.
This was the finale where they performed several songs from Grease.
Saturday evening we took her into Bath for a meal with her friends to celebrate her 18th and the end of the cabaret.


Whilst home life has been full throttle, I've also been busy in the shop making things and keeping the festive feel going.

I've made some Christmas tree decorations from the old keys that I showed on my previous post.
And there's some more made from dusky pink chandelier drops.

I've made a new collection of brooch pillows too.

My doll making has also been at full production and I have a big line-up to show you when they are all complete. These I am saving for the Vintage & Handmade Christmas Fair next Saturday. I shall be upstairs near to the tea rooms this time - Hope to see you there if you can make it. I shall give a preview of the dolls that will be coming with me later in the week. I also have a new design to reveal too! ;-))
Have a great week,
Niki x
