The day we had our Preview.
A beautiful day, we had lunch on the way
And all for under a pound, you know!
Around the back Kaz cuddled with Jack
And Su opened a bottle of cider
Singing a few of our favourite songs
As the workshops went around...
Yup it was Preview and Taster workshop day, yesterday. A big mahoosive thank you to all of those who came, saw, and partook in the frivolities. A glorious time was had by one and all.
and the lovely Kate and me. Joined in this piccie by the lovely Debra who is addicted to our place, lol.
Bezzie Su was there in charge of the refreshment tent. Don't panic the gorgeous Teresa and girlies had done all the baking, so there was nothing for Su to cremate.!
Sandra was rather taken with my new glasses.
Kaz got into the spirit of the occasion with a fifties frock and a bandanna. I stuck to a subtle little number of leopardskin and brothel creepers.
Even the customers are getting the bug. With a matching shirt here is the lovely Nicki, making her Art from the Heart debut in matching animal print.
You may recall that I was highly disappointed last week at the non arrival of a stuffed stag for my birthday, but I was trying to remain extremely optimistic that one may appear for Mothers Day.
Well the lovely Kaz brought me a belated birthday pressie. Can you guess what it is.???
Yes it is my very own stag for my living room. He wasn't quite what I was hoping for!! Mind you who would have expected that you could have a stag that actually sang Motown.?? Yes you heard me correctly, it only frikkin sings to me. It's mouth moves and it's antlers flap. It is frikkin hilarious. I have named him Archibald, very befitting I feel, and he will take pride of place in my 50's parlour.
The lovely Katie and her lovely assistant Bekah, were kept busy on the tills and filling the diary right up until we closed the doors at 5.30.
Kaz was so worn out that Su had to feed her profiteroles to keep her energy levels up for the drive home.
I was shattered and so retired to bed early with some vintage books to peruse and a small sherry. This early retiring resulted with me being awake at the crack of dawn, so I felt it only polite to go fondle my fabric bolts and play with my sewing machine. Well it would have seemed rude not to.!! don't you think?
So I am now half way through a new vintage pattern and a few mtrs of red telephone box material. Hopefully by the time I get back from the workshop I will still have the energy to finish it off. I really want to wear it on my next American excursion. Oh yes plenty of time, weeks, days even. What.???? Tuesday, ??? Aaargh that came round quickly. Oh well nor rest for the wicked eh.??
Here's today's outfit. Another vintage pattern in a modern tattoo material. And just love these red shoes.
Forgot to show you these the other week, my fabby vintage find of two Soulet oil paintings. Many people scoffed at them, but i buddy love them. If you have any of these lurking in your shed or loft, I can give them a wonderful home and save them from other peoples derision.!! Call it a public service if you like. tee hee.
If you thought I was barking you need to pay a visit to the wonderful blog of Helga Von Trollope. I have fallen in love with her and her wonderful outfits. She makes me look like your maiden aunt, which is quite a feat I can tell you, lol.
Go take a look and enjoy xx
