Hens Teeth will have a  stand here at Decorative Living Fair very, very soon.   
Currently experiencing medium grade panic,  as I have an awful lot to make and prepare.   
Hope you can visit, as the Fair is truly beautiful, set in stunning grounds.

I was fortunate enough to attend a Julie Arkell workshop at the wonderful studio of Hope & Elvis on Saturday.
A perfect day in every way.

Julie and I (she liked my cardi ).

Moi and Louise aka Hope and Elvis.

Louise bringing handing out our goody bags that she had so kindly made for us...

filled with goodies.   Lovely treat.

Pics of Julie's work.

A Hope and Elvis shelf.


The studio at H and E is huge, light and inspirational.

Finished pieces.

Huge thank you to Louise (Debs too)...and of course Julie, for making the day so very enjoyable and inspirational.

 Latest works

thank you to every one for your comments here on my Blog, each is very much appreciated.
Sincere apologies for not replying or visiting your Blog.  Each day I seem to run out of time and Blog reading is a real treat these days.
Here ... just a few snaps taken last weekend here at Camden Passage, Islington, London.

Moving on.   Waiting for our eldest at Camden, London.
Made my day, when a middle aged passing Irish man told me I was 'a fine looking woman there'!
Ha ha.

Lucy and I then went onto visit Highgate Cemetery.
By all accounts the Cemetery is split into two.   The side where Carl Marx is, you have to have a guided tour.
We wandered around the other side.  A haven for wildlife.  Very tranquil and beautiful.
This really got to me.
Next day I visited the V&A.   Disappointed to find that the Embroidery/textiles  room is no longer here are a few pics I took whilst wandering the building.

Henry VIII English portrait and his writing box.
Small and exquisite stained glass 1550 - 1561 ... Mery May.
The Three Graces
A gorgeous dolls house by Jessie M. King 1910 (I think)
Two wonderful statues by Eric Gill

Thanks for stopping by. x
