This year has had many highs, a few crappy lows and in-betweens.


I have decided that 2013 is the year to make things happen. I have a little list of things I want to achieve by this time next year... one of those is to get a groove on with this little blog. I've noticed that I only ever put up 2 posts a month and that is going to change... so stay tuned.

Here's to a wonderful new year and thank you to everyone who has read and commented on my posts over the last 12 months... I like you a lot!

Simply having a wonderful Christmas fayre

After lots of planning and running around like mad women, my friend Julia and I opened the doors to our first festive fayre earlier this month!

We had stalls from some amazing local sellers and something for everyone!

Vintage inspired jewellery from Little Treasures
Cards, crafts and gifts from Miss Rose
I adored these photos from Lucy Schorn 
And I fell in love with Lucy's dog amazingly called Stevie Nicks. So bloody cute... 
Leather bunting from Heather
Gorgeous glassware from Clare
Incredible prints from Paul Parsons at the Urban Gallery (we bought top left for our flat)
These prints and beautiful wooden toys from Artisanat were really popular

Amazing jewellery from You Flaming Brute
Some vintage bits and pieces from my stall
Ceramics from Kelly Loves

Elsbells jewellery
Along with great stalls from Ooh La LapinMia Mai, Alice McWilliams and Gamble and Gunn...

As well as the craft stalls we had a craft workshop... children could come an make a tree decoration and adults could experiment with fabric wreaths.

We also had the lovely Emma and Sarah doing festive nail painting and of course there was some delicious mulled wine along with beautiful cakes, minced pies and gingerbread men.

The lovely gents from Snout Crackle Trot were there with some delicious rottiserie Turkey, Cranberry and rocket baguettes...  They were so tasty I had one for lunch and one for dinner!

Snout Crackle Trot
And for a bit of cheesy festive fun we had a photobooth upstairs...

We both really enjoyed it and are already thinking about next year! But in the meantime, I need to wrap some presents... oh and listen to this a bit more...

Since the last photo I have been hit by full on cold, cough, sore throat and general winter bug the past few days have been spent on the sofa drinking tea, lemsip, watching documentaries on 4OD and catching up on all my favourite blogs. 

Hope you're all ready for Christmas? I'm almost there, still a couple of bits to get but I'm not stressing... This time next week I'll be up in Leicestershire with Harry and my family and I can't blimmin' wait.
