Change your heart, look around you...

Hello!   Thank you for calling in.
What a happy day...I have so enjoyed the Royal Wedding, watching the TV with half an eye, as I have been preparing for the vintagebazaar in Frome, Somerset, tomorrow Saturday 30th April.
 I have been really busy making brooches, pin cushions, clutch bags and needlecases.
 Using lovely old, softly worn cottons and French linen.
 The Fair is of the highest quality, with top notch fantastic stall holders and I am very, very happy to be part of the day, selling my handmade items and vintage textiles.   Please come along and say 'hello' if you can.

I have been receiving the most wonderfully supportive comments in reply to my last post.   I have been hearing from lots of bloggers who have the same or similar conditions and it is always good to talk to someone who has the same view point.   One contact made and I feel is already a friend, is julie ~ My Curious Tea Party.   A very special lady and reading her last post was very humbling.

Thank you for stopping by... I leave you with a picture from this lovely day...
I am in awe of the way the ...erm hat/fascinator stays aloft!

Wishing you all the luck for the fair, I am sure you will have a whale of a time and sell lots, how could you not? Your creations are so prettyfull!
I read Julie's blog and her heartfelt letter to you, quite moving. Sometimes it does us well to remember that we all have a cross to bear, it is amazing that relative strangers can reach out and support each other in this way. The kindness shown to me by this community never fails to delight me, and likewise, the kindness shown to you. Sending you lots of love and well wishes <3

Wishing you well for tomorrow's fair.

The wedding was LOVELY, and I enjoyed it from start to finish. I'm really not sure about Princess Beatrice's hat though............. (I have seen it referred to as an octopus sitting on her head!).
