So, how have you been, hope you have enjoyed your summer, I spent most of it in Wales, where both the husband and I grew up. I long to go back, though with Mr. P being the bread winner, I am a Cheshire girl for the foreseeable future. I do love where I live, it is pretty, lots of drool worthy thatched cottages to gaze at ( not mine *sigh* ) and fields and the country smell, the children are at a lovely little village school, but wonder if one day we shall go back home.
I long for the sea views, we went to a glorious wedding whilst at home, the groom is an olde school pal of my husbands, and the views in the garden of the brides home where the wedding took place, were spectacular.
Some guests even arrived by chopper!
Our beautiful table.
And the wonderful and pretty marquee.
Our names were written on pebbles from the beach further down the garden. We all threw them back in the sea after the wedding breakfast, to be washed upon the shore again, to remind the happy couple of wonderful memories.
We were all to bring pretty flowers from the garden, to dress the tables, which I thought was a lovely and special idea, my mum did a little posy from the flowers in her garden, thanks mum :0) As well as a monetary gift, the couple are saving up for a digger, yes a digger. I wanted to handmake a little something and as I had my chine with me whipped up this little number for them. Word has it they *love* it.
So it was a lovely reminder seeing old and new friends, of how much I love Wales, especially the welsh fudge ;0)
This fudge was from a favourite shop of mine in Betws-Y-Coed
Lots of pretties on offer.
I um med and oohed over these two, can you guess which one I came home with ( and for those of you who know me well, it wasn't both ;0)
There are also the lovely views at Swallow Falls
So after a lovely summer, it was time to come to our home, and get the little people ready for school.
All went well, not a tear shed from Master P or Mummy ( doesn't mean I didn't cry buckets the night before though) and he is there full time, so hopefully shall love it, and I shall love the little extra time to
Special order Rosali pram sheet for an ickle baby, was a simple yet very lovely item to handmake, is is edged in pretty pink bias, and would be lovely for a little dolls bed when the baby has grown out of her pram.
Pretty drawstring bags, I loved making this special order, for the daughter of an old Drama college friend, who I met when I was 17, something quite special about making for her own children.
