Boyle Arts Festival

had a great day out!
met some fabulously lovely people, got great
feedback on my products, and had the most interesting
conversations throughout the day - mostly concerning
flowers (in one form or another) but also Emile the cat's
ability to speak French, which some children
found utterly fascinating..! aww...
thanks so much to all my customers, it was
really great meeting you! special thanks
to Deirdre, you had it organised brilliantly!
and hello to my new friends Ina (artist) Roger (ceramics)
and Laura (wool-spinning, now, how cool is that?)

i really should be preparing for the stall i have on
friday, but as i am the queen of procrastination,
i saw that the lavender in the garden was ready
to be picked... oh yes, how very important...!
so once i had a nice big bunch picked...
well, then they should
(naturally) be arranged into neat
bunches! and then i just had to take pictures
of them (and a couple of hydrangeas) because...
well, they were pretty!
ok, ok im going sewing now...
ill be using the lavender to stuff new lavender bags!

Garden update

the garden has been rather neglected lately
but fortunately things just keep growing anyway!
i kinda wish the weeds wouldn't though...
this monster turnip was picked and eaten yesterday
im still waiting to see how the cauliflower
will turn out, but so far so good..!

Super chic hotel

was in Düsseldorf for a long weekend recently and am still
amazed at the swanky hotel the bf booked us into!
had to share a few pictures i took when i just arrived,
before the perfection was ruined by all my bags!
nice eh?

best family EVER!

i live quite a bit away from my family
but we keep in touch through the
means of the internet and skype.
every now and then we send each other packages,
and in the last few weeks,
i have been receiving not just one but TWO parcels!
and it is not even my birthday!
* i feel so loved! *
