A New Year….

Best laid plans and everything….. The run up to Christmas was hectic to say the least, with orders from shops and order from Louth & Stamford markets, with breaking a bone in my foot and with extra Sunday markets and fairs.  I didn’t get chance to breath some days. We had a lovely time away over Christmas with faimily, packed …

Liberty’s Open Call 2016.

LapageMade has some exciting tales from our visit yesterday to the most magnificent London department store… Liberty London. We set off from home at 6am with half a dozen of LapageMade’s wares, packed in a suitcase and with speech in hand and some figures heading for Liberty’s Open Call 2016. We joined the queue a little bit later than hoped, …

Taking 5 minutes before I start the weeks work.

December has well and truelly started and Christmas is everywhere.

No fledglings today but plenty of wasps and flies, must be something to do with the lack of crops about. A flurry of harvesting towards the end …

Exciting Times, Post Number 3

A lovely Sunday in the garden is just what I need. A sunny afternoon after a nice cup of coffee and lunch at our regular in Woodhall Spa. Although a little windy, it freshens it up a little. I think there might be a second clutch of blackbird fledglings in the hedge nearby, bothering their mother by making a racket. …

A Week On & Our Second Post.

Another week has passed and the weather has settled down a little, to a sultry 22 degrees.  Not too hot nor too detrimental.   This week I’ve been mainly reading about Blogs (making and engraving Chopping Boards, Trivets and a couple of new idea’s also, in preperation to The Revesby Country Fair and my other regular Markets).  A particulaly helpful …
