Friday night I'm going nowhere....

Hello, my name is Daisy...Let me tell you how it's been around here just lately...my little world has turned upside down since my big sister went away. Everyone has been very sad around here and then just as things were starting to settle, this came into town...I can't tell you how much of a pain he is, trying to bite my tail and ears...pooing and weeing in inappropriate places and at inappropriate times. I tried to tell him to 'get lost' on many an occasion but nothing seemed to make him understand.
He has been living here for two weeks now and with my mom working very hard to train this little upstart into leaving me alone. I can just about tolerate him now...infact, I did manage to share a chair with him for a minute or two.
Thanks for letting me tell you how it's been...I think maybe one day, when he matures a bit and stops being so silly, we might be friends. Maybe, we'll see......
Lots of love...Daisy. x Thanks for that Daisy.... thankfully, we seem to be making progress ;-)

Well, I am very much looking forward to next week, May 1st, and the Vintage and Handmade Fair at Chipping Sodbury. I enjoy every aspect of it. Michele and Jayne organise a simply stunning Fair and I love every minute. Hope to see you there!
A couple of pieces I have made for sale on the day.

I have had a lovely couple of surprises this week. Carolyn of love-stitchingred kindly sent me a handmade gift, specially created from St. Ives in Cornwall, capturing the essence of Cornwall so very beautifully.
Carolyn also sent a collection of fabrics, ribbons and snippets...

also this....the title made me smile!
Thank you so much Carolyn for your kindness.

I was also lucky enough to win Emma's giveaway over at silverpebble Emma's exquisite work arrived in this box decorated with this birdy drawing.
This isn't a brilliant photo, but as you can see the necklace is handmade and absolutely exquisite. Thank you so much Emma. I shall wear with pride.
Thank you so much for all your support and generous comments and for stopping by. x
ps. my Holly just read the beginning of this post and she said it was pretty nauseating...sorry :-)

I'm guessing that you are beginning to see light at the end of the puppy training tunnel then!
As usual your pieces are lovely,

Oh Daisy Daisy.. I do hope you and BBN will be good mates soon. Just think of all the fun you could have showing him the ropes..!!

Can't wait to see you Viv.. and I just know that Hen's Teeth will be such an asset to the V & H fair again!

Victoria said...

Beautiful new work, Viv!

Hang in there Daisy, as I can relate. These new family additions take some time learning how things are suppose to go, (and where to go). I am sure in another month or so all will be much better!

Andi's English Attic said...

Such a sweetie. I'm sure hearts will be won over. xx

BizzyDays said...

Oh, BBN just gets cuter! Daisy's getting used to him then...:)
Your purses are gorgeous..:0)

Country Cottage Chic said...

I'm sure the two of them will be inseperable one of these days once he's figured out that Daisy is in charge!

so looking forward to seeing you at the fair on Saturday.

Poor little Daisy - I'm sure she'll get used to her new companion eventually! Have a great time at the V + H Fair Viv. Best wishes, Lesley

Julie Whitmore Pottery said...

Oh Viv, our Emma (Lab) still gallops into the room where our
cat, Joe, looks on with disgust and bats her away with claws out, I would say they tolerate eachother. barely.
Your new baby is perfect in every way. Good luck at your show

If the little man is driving you crazy Daisy, you could always send him to Yorkshire where he could come and live with me.....
