Think Pink

As some of you may remember from this post, my Mum was diagnosed with breast cancer almost a year ago. She has had her treatment and is now doing very well and has had the *all clear*. Some people are not so lucky. You probably all know someone who has been touched by this awful disease. This month is Breast Cancer Awareness month and my blogging buddy and 'Hertfordshire Homey' Jacqueline inspired me to follow her lead and channel some Pink Positivity in honour of the occasion.

Have a lovely weekend...

Hampstead Holiday Market

Sorry, I didn't mean to go AWOL for so long, only, it's half term school holidays here and on top of that I'm preparing for the Hampstead Holiday Market. I'm very excited. I will be selling mostly hair accessories; hair ties and hair clip/corsages.

I have also made some lovely little girls aprons which will be ideal for Christmas presents.

So, you see, I have been busy!
If you find yourself in Hampstead on Novemeber 6th do pop in and say 'Hi".

~ or coffee~ and a good book...

Rustic/Swedish/French/English Country...ish.

At last! Things seem to have got back to 'normal' around here, my back is no longer playing up and neither is my internet so we seem to be back on track...

THANK YOU guys for all of your caring messages and emails, you are such a lovely, thoughtful bunch :O)
And a big 'cheers' to my girl Jo at Brown Paper and String for her spicy apple chutney recipe...
will let you know how it goes.

You may remember this post, when I first introduced you to my new house and also our stable/barn which we planned to reno. Well, I have been looking for the right builder to take on the job of sympathetically turning this old wooden shack into a studio and spare bedroom. I think I've found him and all being well he should be starting the transformation very soon!

So, I have been scouring the internet (now that it's working!) looking for pictures that capture the 'feel' I'm going for... that classic combination of...erm...Rustic/Swedish/French/English Countryish!

...Oh, you know what I'm getting at, right?

Have a great week!
