Nearly There

Most people will have almost finished their Christmas shopping over the next couple of weeks. I will not do mine until the last show is finished, and then I will wrap and pack.
I will be at The Rural Living show this Saturday and Sunday 26th / 27th in Taunton Somerset.
Mostly with my Ceramics.

Coasters always make a nice practical present. These are a set of Birds with a holder.

Have you noticed the weather, how mild it is. Now my grandfather used to say if there are a lot of berries on the holly, that's for a cold bad winter?

My Holly trees are loaded in berries this year.
Don't forget, I have items for sale on Etsy or if you can make it to the show do pop over.

Jingle Bells

Yes it is that time of year again, putting your thinking caps on, what are you going to buy for your loved ones.
Try giving handmade this year, unique with a lot of thought into the item.
I am doing what I always do, this time of the year, going round in circles and getting no where. I have been trying to build up stock for the shows, but I do get side tracked onto other things......

This year I will be selling ceramic candle lights, Christmas tree ornaments and some of my lovely Lampwork jewellery.
Hope to see you at some of the shows.
