Well, I don't know where the time has gone, but I seem to have taken a longer blogging break than planned! Things have been really busy and juggling school with my Pink Green stalls and etsy shop is taking up quite a bit of time. Combined with family visitors that does not leave much time for blogging!!
My stall last weekend at the Bath Road Market was my best one yet, and was another fun day out with my little sis. The bargain china basket proved to be a hit, and as Rachel came laden with 4 boxes of vintage china all the way from sunny Newcastle I had plenty to fill it with.
Rachel also served to kick me into gear, and we managed to make the most of some sunshine to take some outdoor photos for Etsy and other projects I have got on the go.
This is one of two tea sets I have listed in my Etsy shop, and they are some of the most gorgeous ones I have had. I can't really bear to part with them but no matter how hard I try I can't find a home for any more!
Yesterday was another sunny day and I made the most of it and went to the Malvern Gardening Show with my usual sidekick for these events - my lovely friend Stacey. One of my best purchases was a bench, which we loaded up with all our other purchases and carried it to the gate. It was a very long way and caused much amusement, both to us and even to those people we bumped into by mistake. It squeezed into her VW Golf (just) and will look fab in the garden once I've had a clear up.
We had a slight disaster a few weeks ago in the storms and our beautiful Clematis Montana blew down, taking the entire length of fencing with it. It was in full bloom and was so gorgeous, but we have had to chop away the entire lot and take it to the tip. Our trusty builder was called in and is in the process of putting up new fencing, but I have decided against letting the clematis grow back as it takes up so much space and only flowers for a couple of weeks. Yesterday I managed to buy a couple of replacement plants, so I'm looking forward to the fencing going up so I can get out there and get planting again!
Before I go, I thought I should let you all know about a new, exciting venture that I am involved in. Curio's Emporium are starting a series of pop up vintage fairs in pubs in Cheltenham, and the first one is on June 2nd at the Swan on the High Street. There will be vintage and retro goods, handmade items, bands, a barbeque and plenty of other exciting things (including my stall!). If you are in the Cheltenham area on the 2nd please pop in and join in the fun. The pub is right on the St James Car Park, so it's handy if you are nipping into town too!
Have a good week,
