Summer trends which I am loving....

Hey everyone,

Thought I would share with you all today a summer trend which I am loving.....MINT! I just can't get enough of it.  Here is a mood board showing how you can pull of mint this summer. Teamed up with crisp whites mint can look really fresh and summery while still keeping a retro look about it. I really love the retro style accessories in this mood board, particularly those lovely round glasses. This would be a great look for holiday when you are doing some sight seeing; glamorous but comfy!

The royal baby has arrived!

What a wonderful day....!
Congratulations to William and Kate :) !

Spent the last few days as everyone has, waiting for news on the royal baby. Yesterday was so exciting.... when news spread that Kate was in labour everyone was glued to the news and checking the news whenever possible! I have been trying to prepare for my next fair and have been out in the garden as it has been sunny labeling stock but dashing in for cups of tea and news updates. When the news was announced that Kate had had the baby twitter went crazy and there was such a lovely atmosphere here in the village. Flags have been hung out the windows of a few of the houses and everyone seems in really high spirits trying to guess what the name of the baby will be. Henry? George? Albert? Louis?

I thought she was going to have a little girl but was obviously wrong!! I think they might give him a modern (ish) first name and then family names from both sides for his middle names. Possibly George Albert for his middle names I think!

Switched on the news at 6pm today after being out all day and then back for a online lesson and reporters were lined up waiting for news on the baby, felt like forever that we were staring at those same doors of the hospital waiting to see the new baby prince. When the doors finally opened it was such a wonderful moment and so lovely to see such proud parents with their new son :). Love how he did his first little royal wave!! Certainly a day that I will always remember.

Got rather excited on Twitter (oooops!). Sorry for all the excited updates....what can I say....I was excited!! Also funny to see that London has been so wet and rainy today, it has been bright and sunny and beautiful all day here in Dorset. Was weird seeing photos of soaked reporters!!

So much excitement and happiness in the air at the moment :) it is lovely. Feels like it did around the royal wedding, the olympics and the jubilee :).

A little update....

Hello everyone,

How are you all? Sorry for my lack of posting, it is craft and vintage fair season so I have been rushing around preparing, packing and off to fairs! It has been hard work with lots of early mornings but I have been enjoying it. It has also given me an opportunity to meet lots of you which has been fantastic, thank you to everyone who has come to my stall and said hello :). The Dorset Team craft fair was a really great day. Such a great venue and I got to meet so many lovely local sellers and local people which was lovely :). I was really pleased with how the stall looked as I have been working hard on new displays for the stall and I was also thrilled at the end of the day when I won the raffle....not once....but twice!!! I have also been pleasantly surprised that quite a few people have come to the stall and said they are already following me on Twitter, know my shop and are reading my tweets. Thanks to everyone who has come over and introduced themselves, so nice to meet some of my Twitter followers in person and thrilled that people are recognising my shop :).

I have one of my biggest fairs of the year next week which I am very excited about and just crossing my fingers that the weather is going to stay nice as it has been so beautiful and hot recently. I am outside so I hope there is not going to be any rain!!!

As well as doing craft and vintage fairs I am of course still running the online shop and have actually been adding quite a few new items to the shop recently :). I am also running a SALE at the moment!
