Sausage Pudding

Well I've eloped down to Cornwall where Ive been holed up for the last 2 weeks working away and sending off the last of my orders to customers and galleries, Then I had the dreaded lurgy and sausage was a lovely companion while I lay in bed feeling sorry for myself and watching episodes of Veronica Mars!! Feeling much better today and now the worst of the snow has lifted I actually managed an epic beachcomb today, you would not believe how heavy my bag was today!!!
Off to Truro tomorrow to do my Xmas shopping I'm really slack every year and always leave it till the last minute although I got some lovely ceramics from Ulrika Jarl in the post today!! (if your reading this gem that was a present spolier!!!)
Anyway to honour the long one here are my favourite photos of him I have taken since I have been down...

Goodbye untill next time!!!

Remember that snowman I posted yesterday...

Well, here he is today...

Mwh ha ha, the snow has melted and that meant one thing...Lewes was on!!!
The craft fair in Lewes was amazing, as always, so many lovely handmade things, I went a bit nuts at one ceramic stall and bought four pieces, including a milk jug, one of those random things I've always wanted to complete my tea experience!!!
Here are some photos of my stall, you can see my fab new seagul & west pier cushions, I designed the image myself and had the material printed by a brill company called Spoonflower. One went to a happy new home today which I was very pleased about.

I loved all the chairs revamped by Lizzy Rose, they have all been reupholstered in amazing vintage and reclaimed materials, I would love to commission her to revamp our tired old sofa so I'm sure if I badger Steve enough he may agree, he thought the chairs looked a bit "Alice in Wonderland" but I think that is a perfect theme to emulate!!!

So to recap lots of tea, lots of cake and lots of sales makes me a happy bunny!! Goodbye, untill next time!!!

Month of extreme

Well it's been a while since I updated my blog, last on the agenda was the Makers Boutique Winter Market that me & Katy organized. The event was a huge sucess with lots of sales in the beautiful church of St Nicholas, apparently the oldest church in Brighton, built in the 14th Century!!! We plan to hold another in the new year, hopefully in Febuary, so watch this space!!!

One reason I slipped off the radar is because I have moved too! The perils of renting have reared their ugly head and unfortunately our landlords realised what a fantastic flat we had and moved back in!!! Boo!!
I am very upset to leave and also did not realise how much crap I own!!! Moving crates full of sea glass (essentials!!!) down 4 flights of stairs and up 5 is no mean feat and we were lucky on moving day to have loads of friends help out, some of the boys had the power of ten tigers!!!!

Broken Steve!!! Feel his pain!

Also been busy making stock for the biggest event for me every year, the Lewes Artists & Makers Event at the Foundry Gallery in Lewes. Loads of new pieces and even some rad new cushions!!! It's on tomorrow (Saturday) so if your in the area checkity check it out!!! If you can brave the snow that it!! Fingers crossed I get there!!!

Talking of snow, I found this guy outside my front door yesterday!! Goodbye, untill next time!!!
