Help came by means of eccentric daughter, but now have to do it on Google Chrome, so I can get pictures to upload... yeah .... so here are pictures of the journals, the next lot I make I will take pictures of the inside because I've decorated inside too.  Waiting for new supplies, I got the first lot from my local art/craft shop here in Bridport, but they havn't had any more and don't know when the next lot will be coming, so have had to go further afield via the internet, so hopefully they'll be here on Monday.

On looking at this picture now it dosn't really show you much so perhaps will redo this when made some more.

So moving quickly on from this picture, which all the fuss was about in the first place, last Tuesday had a day out, really to go to Otter Nurseries, hubby wanted a plant, cone flower, Echinea but in a different colour the usual pink or white he wanted orange or dark red or lime, felt sure they would have one there, but didn't, he was disappointed but an ice cream in Sidmouth made up for it.  I did get some lovely creamy hyacinth bulbs to grow though.

Before Otters we called in Honiton we always drive through on the way to Otters but never stop, Tuesday was market day, so quite busy not much on the market, but some lovely little shops and I must say a fantastic W H Smiths for different magazines on the sewing/crafty front, plenty of chairty shops to browse, eccentric daughter bought this lampshade for her room, she had been looking for ages for one like this, it is pink which isn't really her colour, but liked the shape and it is lined as well,  so was purchased for a small amount and came home to have a wash in the sink and hung on the line to blow in the breeze....

and now looks like new

Sidmouth was as lovely as ever, nice to have a walk round and a walk along the front and finished with the biggest ice cream ever also called in Seaton to the new Tesco there, it is a Green/Eco store for a bit of shopping, so a long day but a lovely one.

Just going to show you this picture

This is Monkey.  Monkey is very old and will be featuring in a later post!

No Pictures

I know another week has passed and havn't put any pics on of the journals I made for the craft fair at St Mary's but I can't seem to load any images up, so have to wait for technical help!

 Had a very good day, selling lots of things, didn't know whether to take the  journals I had made or save them for nearer Christmas, but decided yes I would and they sold out within an hour, so guess what I have been doing these last two weeks.

Sorry this is such a boring post with no pictures, isn't it amazing how pictures can turn something from boring to great.

Apart from the technical hitch, everything is tickty boo, Olga bird hen is broody no more now fighting to get out in the morning and getting everybody in order.

My next fair is at the Antiques Bazzar at Crewkerne 15/16th September, so hopefully by then will have a full account with pictures!

Bye for now
