Finally we are moving - just a few years in the planning but this time next week we will be settling into out new home in the beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside.
We are renting this stunning Coach House - a complete change to the views of urban South East London!
|not the whole house....just the closest half up to the garage door!|
First up was the Midsummer Fair in lovely Hole Park, Benenden, Kent - always a beautiful fair - so many pretty, unique and just gorgeous items to buy from very talented crafts folk and store owners.
I had a few minutes to take a peek around and took some of these pooch pics as there was a bountiful number of perfect pooches scattered around - real and not!
|the best smelling pooch ever!|
|just loved these statues|
Onwards towards Birmingham and the BBC Good Food Show Summer (inc gardeners World Live) - i love this event! So many nice stallholders, customers and food!
It was great to catch up and snaffle more fabulous Gower Cottage Brownies (www.gowercottagebrownies.co.uk) mmmmmmmm - so delicious! And Kate is just as crackers as we are - so always a chortle-fest on the stand!
We met MasterChef winner Mat Follas - what a lovely chap, along with his assistant chef Katy who was also just lovely.
|mini milk bottles soon to be in his restaurant.....|
And here was my lunch from the show - this is the reason he is a MasterChef! just delicious......catch him on the MasterChef street food bus at a food festival near you! www.matfollas.com
|Queenie Scallops with steamed rice|
The beautiful Lisa Faulkner paid a couple of visits to the stand - added to her collection of Piquot Ware (soon to be seen in her newest book coming out soon!) Not only a fabulous actress and an amazing chef but a truly lovely lady!
Her books are just brilliant - check her website out here: www.lisafaulkner.co.uk
So, next up is the Kitsch and Stitch fair in Cranbrook next weekend (Saturday 5th July) - www.kitschandstitchfair.blogspot.co.uk i just love this fair - haven't been able to come along to this event for a wee while - so am really looking forward to catching up with some old friends and lovely customers!
Until then - it is packing, sorting, clearing up, and clearing out!!!
Cue the Blur song: "She lives in a House, A very big* house in the Countreeeee" (*actually a smallish house!!!)
See you soon,
