first snow

the last few days around here have seen the first snow of this winter, and according to the news that seems to think snow is headline grabbing stuff, its the earliest snowfall for decades... in this country we get a few inches and its chaos, whilst in other places around the world that get far more, they just seem to get on with it... but it still looks lovely and I'm not complaining.. let it snow let it snow let it snow....

busy busy

the last few weeks i have been working much harder than i really like, i actually don't much like working at all, but that stuff printed on paper i suppose wont make itself.. so i have to work to get it.. and all this activity that saw steam rising from my sewing machine was for the markets i have been doing recently and this weekend i went a ridiculously fancy country house hotel to take part in a Christmas fair.. this was my stall, i really liked how it looked.. i didn't sell much really,it seems that cupcakes and jams are what most people will be getting this year as those stalls almost sold out..

i love this

this is from one of my favorite etsy shops, the wheatfield and i think i might just have to buy it..
i certainly dont seize every day, but i try to.. this print might just make it easier.

i love these

so its already in every shop and nearly every advert on TV is telling us about what deals can be had this year , yeah so its pretty much Christmas already, i have already consumed many many mince pies and i think my mam would put up our tree and decorate every surface now if she could, and i was just browsing around vintage etsy and saw these and they are so very lovely, and i love them, so there..

they can be found here in this shop.. dont tempt me

first market done...

so as i said a few posts ago, i took part in my first market this weekend, and well, lets just say i learnt lots. firstly, where the stalls were positioned was rubbish, away from the main Halloween activities, and the weather was so horrible with lots of rain, BUT i did sell some dresses and i covered all costs, which was good.
when i do the next one i will know what to expect. i now know how big the table is, how big the stall that the table goes in is, and how to set up the stall to make it look good.
and mainly i learnt not to forget chairs... it would have been a very long dull day without having borrowed a chair from a neighbouring stall. so it certainly wasn't brilliant, but I'm confident, and hopeful that things can only get better.. god i hope they can.
